In case you weren’t aware, in the 90s, Bill and Ted received their first comic series at Marvel Comics. The success of Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey adapted from the movie led to another series, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Comic Book that ran from 1991-1992. Now, with the release of Bill & Ted Face The Music this August, fans are getting a prequel comic added to the franchise! Bill & Ted Are Doomed is a four issue prequel published by Dark Horse Comics that brings back writer and artist Evan Dorkin, as well as co-creator and co-writer of Bill and Ted, Ed Solomon, and a new face as an artist, albeit just as legendary, Roger Langridge.

After defeating the evil dictator De Nomolos in Bogus Journey in 1995, things aren’t looking as excellent as they should for either Bill and Ted or Wyld Stallyns. There’s tension in the band and worry at home. Bill and Ted’s obsessiveness with writing the one song to bring peace to the world is affecting their playing and their relationships with their families. The band is losing favor with fans and the future isn’t shaping up as they were all led to believe it would from past (and future) events. Desperate for a solution Bill and Ted burst in to announce their great idea to revive the band’s fortunes: a world tour to spread the love-and the rock, and the love of the rock-to the world.
Bill & Ted Are Doomed will be available to purchase in comic shops starting September 9 for $3.99. If you are unsure if there is a comic store near you, use the store finder here.
