The first great comic of 2017...

Just announced from Dark Horse for March of 2017, the long awaited fourth volume of LARRY MARDER'S BEANWORLD, with the intriguing subtitle "Hoka Hoka Burb'l Burb'l". A 152-page comic, here's what we know so far:

The most peculiar comic book experience returns in an all-new volume--Beanworld Volume 4: Hoka Hoka Burb'l Burb'l! The Boom'r Band coaxes a new healing power out of Chow, leading to a visit from Dreamishness's relatives--the Windy Songsterinos--who bring their gift of rain. The storm causes great changes to Mr. Spook, Beanish and the Pod'l'pool Cuties. Marder's deceptively simple artwork illustrates a self-contained ecological fantasy realm with its own unique rules and lingo. Beanworld has delighted readers from grade school to grad school for more than a generation, earning a spot on the New York Times Graphic Books Best Sellers List.

ISBN-10: 150670218X
ISBN-13: 978-1506702186

That's a lot to take in. It'll be over seven years since the third book, "Remember Here When You Are There", came out, finishing up the "Spring" cycle of stories, and only a thin colour one-shot of mostly reprints since, so I'm very eager to finally get some more.
