BOOM! Studios has acquired the comic book rights to Cartoon Network’s Ben 10, and will launch a new series of releases with The Truth Is Out There, an original graphic novel from writer CB Lee and artist Lidan Chen.

“I am so thrilled to be working with BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network on the Ben 10 original graphic novels,” said Lee. “I grew up watching cartoons and had so much fun getting to follow my favorite characters to far-off worlds, and especially following their adventures, seeing friendships form and fighting for what you believe in. Ben 10 absolutely encompasses everything I love about storytelling - it’s so clever and has so much humor and heart. The original graphic novels will follow Ben, Gwen, Grandpa Max on all new adventures with mischief, monsters, and more mayhem with Ben and his aliens — and will be fun for fans of the show who want more of the Ben 10 universe, as well as a wonderful way to introduce new people to this series. I can't wait to share these new adventures with all of you!”

Ben 10 is a cartoon I love very much, so working on this graphic novel is a great opportunity and a big challenge,” added Chen. “I’m enjoying drawing all the characters - especially the aliens because they are really cool!”

“The Ben 10 creators have mixed charming characters with absolutely unforgettable adventures that have you rooting for Ben at every chance,” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “We’re excited explore the mythology in comic book form, and Ben 10: The Truth Is Out There is the first graphic novel where we get to join Ben, Gwen and Grandpa Max in the Rust Bucket and explore the summer with them. There will be hijinks, there will be aliens, and there is going to be a lot fun.”

Ben 10: The Truth Is Out There will be published through BOOM!’s KaBOOM! Imprint, and will be released in March 2019.
