Following the TV series, several comics have been released all bearing the same title of "Over the Garden Wall". The first comic special and a miniseries. What's to Love: Airing last November, Pat McHale's Over the Garden Wall was Cartoon Network's first-ever Story time just got better with Prime Book Box, a subscription that delivers editorially hand-picked 1 by Jim Campbel Comic $ Over The Garden Wall () #1 (of 4) and millions of other books are available for .. This is a great comic that fills in a significant gap in the OtGW mythos.
The pair inexplicably finds itself marching through a folk-fantasy wonderland with the singular goal to find home. While that description may sound familiar—a clear design choice by its authors—the context shifts magnificently from episode to episode, pivoting from genres at a breakneck pace without ever losing a singular vision. Other episodes revel in the glow of Silly Symphony -era musicals, s folk and John Hughes rom-com sincerity. And it all works together beautifully. Paste chatted on the phone with McHale about the emerging legacy of his show, how the comics medium affects his storytelling and the addictive music behind it all.
I said that fills out everything in detail. And then for the amount of time we had to finish it, and our deadline and all that stuff, well we could only do So I had to chop it down a little bit.
A lot of ideas from those additional episodes were mashed together or re-used in different ways for what actually became the series. Is it easier to write some characters in this form than in cartoon scripts? Not necessarily. I get a lot more wordy…I mean the show is already wordy enough, and then the comics are already more wordy. He worked on the show. He knows the characters, he knows everything so well.
Did you look back to the comics of the era at all? How much did the works of guys like Winsor McCay inspire this? With the first special that was released a while back, we were looking at Edward Lear drawings for inspiration for those sea captain guys. With the new one we were looking at folk art, but then also old printed material—old comics, old EC Horror comics for issue two.
The character was created for [ukulele player and vocalist] Janet Klein , who was the voice of that character. When the show was getting greenlit, that was one of my first things—I really wanted to get Janet Klein, so I wrote that character for her. And then Laura Park and Jim Campbell boarded that episode, so Laura designed the character in the storyboard.
I want to say how amazing an artist she is without sounding insincere. Originally, the character was based on old dolls. She had that long neck, which none of the other characters had. You ended the miniseries on a very definite note.
Moving onto the characters, the divide between Greg and Wirt is a lot of fun, especially how both respond to very adult situations. Is Greg based on your son at all?
Where does Wirt come from? Greg was based on me as a kid, pretty much.
There are pieces of other people I know in both of them. And then, from pilot to series, [voice actor] Elijah [Wood] influenced how we wrote Wirt, too. The poetry stuff came out of us wanting to hear Elijah do that, and how he would make it really funny if he was reciting this stuff, so it evolved out of that. We had to get creative with how to phrase her lines so they felt really biting and sharp, without using bad words.
At first she came about as sort of the guide, the blue bird of happiness, the fairy guide character. But I wanted her to have this sort of dark past that she was hiding, which is the reason she has that chip on her shoulder the whole time.
There were a lot of different versions of what that might have been as we were developing the story. It became what it becomes. Final issue! This is a prequel to the Cartoon Network animated series. Before the woodsman was busy chasing after the beast, he lived in the woods with his daughter. Over the Garden Wall is now an ongoing series!
Greg returns to Dreamland at night, where the silly creatures who live there help him on his adventures. Then, dive back into the early days in the Unknown where young Anna, the daughter of the Woodsman, must learn to survive in the woods on her own.
Greg tries to help a squirrel prepare for winter, while Anna records her lonely days in the woods in her journal.
Greg follows Jason Funderburker down a mysterious alley and makes new friends along the way, while Anna must decided whether she should leave the safety of her home to find her father. The boys share two tales of Dreamland, where they encounter a toothy bird, help a giant dog, and interrupt an eerie funeral. Greg stumbles into a town of fashionable pigeons, while Wirt searches for his brother in the woods.
Greg meets the Old Man of the Mountain, and sings him a tune. Meanwhile, Wirt is named the Chief of Gothic Fashion, and a surprise guest from home appears! Kitty isn't good at helping out the family business and decides to go to Ms. Langtree's School for Animals!
