Rebecca Sugar’s ‘Steven Universe’ is coming to KABOOM!. It will join titles from Cartoon Network like, “Adventure Time”, “Regular Show”, “The Amazing World of Gumball”, and “Uncle Grandpa”. This title however, is a bit special. Rebecca Sugar is the first woman to create a cartoon show for Cartoon Network. She is also a former storyteller for “Adventure Time” so she knows how to spin a good yarn. The cartoon and the comic will be about Steven who is a boy and the fourth of a series of gems that protect the universe becauase of the power weiled by intergalactic female warriors. Steven happens to be a gem next to Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl. He also has friends and he and his friends live in a small community call Beach City. The story sometimes involves saving the day and sometimes just doing crazy things around the beach town.

Clearly a clever idea for a cartoon and a comic book, KABOOM! Is bringing the animation to the printed page in August.
