It’s been a while, but Dark Horse has just put the fourth volume of BEANWORLD on the schedule for next year. It’s listed as a 152 page book, coming out in March, 2017. The subtitle is “Hoka Hoka Burb’l Burb’l”, and it’s described as:
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.
Larry Marder has just posted about the passing of his wife and inspiration Cory Marder. All condolences to him in this time, and a salute to her for the pivotal role she played in the development of the Beanworld.
There’s a non-Beanworld related story by Larry Marder coming out in July, titled “Troll Bridge”.
