Titan Comics has announced the launch of a new comic book series based on the popular Fox animation Family Guy.

The publishers have teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products on the project, which will see Seth MacFarlane's longrunning animation adapted into a monthly comic exclusive to the US.

According to Comic Book Resources, the new series "will follow the Griffin family on a string of brand new outrageous storylines".

In addition to the main members of the iconic Griffin family, it has been confirmed that fan favorite characters like Cleveland Brown and Glen Quagmire will all make regular appearances in the title.

The series will feature artwork from SL Galant, known for his work on G.I. Joe, and former Judge Dredd artist Anthony Williams.

Family Guy is currently airing its ninth season, while spinoff The Cleveland Show is in the middle of its second season for the network.

Family Guy airs Sundays at 9/8c on Fox.

Family Guy #1 will be published in the US on July 27.

Agreed. I've found it funny a couple of times, but then I realised that they handle ever joke in exactly the same way, that they have all the subtlety of a two by four to the head and the writers are all fucking pricks.

Knowing this show's penchant for long awkward pauses as a substitute for actual jokes, I'm expecting the comic to be one long series of the same panels...then a punchline.

the presence of taste does not imply the lack of a sense of humor
screwhim 5th-Apr-2011 01:21 pm (UTC)
Not laughing at an obvious joke probably means you actually have a sense of humor.

so how many pages will be dedicated to dragging out one joke
pikamidge 5th-Apr-2011 12:00 pm (UTC)
not really a family Guy fan but a lot of the humour in it comes from the way it's animated... i don't really see how a comic is going to tell the jokes with any more effect.
hussel 5th-Apr-2011 12:04 pm (UTC)
you could argue that family guy's humor is basically a comic book. rather than coherent stories, episodes are usually a bunch of jokes strung together ("remember when peter sang that 80s song verbatim?" *flashback*). seems like it'll work pretty well for the comic book format.
pikamidge 5th-Apr-2011 12:09 pm (UTC)
ah you've got a point there.
sexi_squidward 5th-Apr-2011 12:03 pm (UTC)
I love this show and all but a comic book?

sexi_squidward 5th-Apr-2011 05:16 pm (UTC)
I just never liked reading pictures. I'd rather read a book...but not of family guy

as long as bob's burgers (and american dad) can roam free, macfarlane can do whatever he wants.

Another Bob's Burgers fan? That show has consistently made me laugh out loud.
