The executive editor of the publishing brand of Incendium told io9 via email that comics were the natural next step, seeing how the company had already made some excellent Bill and Ted toys and apparel. The subject matter came from Tipton's past.

For the first storyline, we wanted something that hadn't been done in the comics before, that was a fit for the era yet still relevant today, and that was a strong musical. The satanic panic was spawned when parents and religious groups objected to the games and heavy metal music.

I pulled out the Rolodex and looked up the funniest writers I knew.

Since fans have seen what happens to Bill and Ted after this time period, Tipton made sure the story took place in a time that didn't betray any of that.

We will have a new Bill & Ted comic in stores each month, as well as a couple of one-shots as we gear up for the series.

The official Incendium site has more on that, as well as Bill and Ted Roll the Dice #1, which is out June 14.

Wondering where our feed went? The new one can be picked up here.
