Napoleon Dynamite gets comic book sequel from IDW

IDW Publishing has announced that they will be launching a brand new comic book series which will be set as a sequel to the 2004 comedy Napoleon Dynamite. Written by brothers Carlos Guzman-Verdugo and Alejandro Verdugo, the four-issue series is scheduled to be released on September.

“Napoleon Dynamite is a pop-culture staple, a coming-of-age cult classic that spoke to the weirdo in all of us,” Alejandro Verdugo said in a statement. “It’s an honor to have the chance to expand on the lives of Napoleon, Deb, and Pedro — characters that continue to resonate to this day. I still see people wearing ‘Vote for Pedro’ t-shirts!”

Carlos Guzman-Verdugo added, “With this new story, we’re focusing on matching the movie’s unique tone, finding that perfect blend of oddball comedy and charming slice-of-life drama. It’s certainly been a challenge but one we’re sure will pay off for long-time fans. And the best part: we get to rewatch a lot of NapoleonDynamite!”

The Napoleon Dynamite series will take us back to Idaho, where Napoleon’s best friend Pedro is student body president. But the good times might not last when a fellow student accuses Pedro of cheating in the election. Can Napoleon and Deb use their special skills to clear their friend before the principal can “Impeach Pedro”?

The comic book sequel’s art will be done by Adventure Time‘s Jorge Monlongo with Tom Waltz serving as its editor. The first issue’s cover was created by artist Sara Richard. A special photo edition and Monlongo’s variant covers will also be available.

Efren Ramirez and Tina Majorino (Big Love) also starred in the movie as Pedro and Deb, respectively.
