‘The Incredibles 2’ receiving comic book tie in from Dark Horse

The Incredibles 2

For fans who have been waiting over a decade for a sequel to The Increibles we have some great news. This summer Dark Horse comics will be publishing a tie in to sequel The Incredibles 2. Head down the page for a preview of some of the artwork.

Written by Liz Marsham and Nicoletta Baldari the 48-page special will be entitled Incredibles 2: Heroes at Home. Stories will find Dash and Violet doing their best to help out at home while their mom and dad — Mr. and Mrs. Incredible — take on new and very different jobs. First, Dash and Violet must secretly go into Super mode when they interrupt criminal activity on a routine grocery trip to pick up some essentials! Then, helping out at home, their efforts to keep up with their chores are unknowingly obstructed by the innocent mischief of their little brother, Jack-Jack!

There will also be a three-issue miniseries based on the popular characters.

Written by Christos Gage and Landry Q. Walker and illustrated by Gurihiru, J.Bone, Andrea Greppi and Roberta Zanotta, Incredibles 2: Crisis in Mid-Life! & Other Stories collects part 1 of “Crisis in Mid-Life!,” part 1 of “Bedtime Story” and a standalone Jack-Jack story. Each issue boasts two original ongoing stories, with Jack-Jack-focused shorts in issues #1 and #2. The stories are set during and after the events of the film. A synopsis for the series reads:

While dedicating a new submarine, Mr. Incredible is interrupted by the dastardly Bomb Voyage — who is intent on crushing the crowd of onlookers underneath the sub! Mr. Incredible struggles to save the day, which has him questioning his super powers — could something be wrong? In “Bedtime Story” part 1, Bob tells Jack-Jack a bedtime story that has Violet and Dash calling foul: this battle from his glory days seems too amazing to be true. Then in his own adventure, at a visit to the park, Jack-Jack uses his powers to overcome a worthy opponent!

What surprises us (and CBR) most is that despite Disney’s ownership of Marvel these comics have been licensed to Dark Horse.

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

The Incredibles 2 lands in cinemas on June 15, 2018.
