Disney's Lilo & Stitch Race Across the Globe
In New Ongoing Comic Series by Greg Pak & Giulia Giacomino!

October 9, Mt. Laurel, NJ: 
Dynamite Entertainment announces a first of its kind ongoing comic book series starring Disney's beloved Lilo & Stitch! Writer Greg Pak and artist Giulia Giacomino bring fans of all ages a thrilling tale with all the fun and heart that Experiment 626 is known for this January!

Following the events of the iconic 2002 animated film, the alien Stitch has found his place in Hawaii with his 'ohana, which includes his best friend Lilo, Lilo's older sister Nani, Nani's boyfriend David, the aliens Dr. Jumba and Agent Pleakley, and social worker Cobra Bubbles. With the support of this extended found family, Lilo and Stitch are learning to somewhat moderate their sometimes destructive impulses with a new sense of responsibility. They all get to enjoy the beautiful sights, sounds, and tastes of Hawaii — and the waves!

That is, until a new threat comes hunting for everyone's favorite, fuzzy blue boy — mysterious giant robots seeking samples of Stitch's own DNA for their own nefarious purposes! In a brand new journey that will take readers across the world, will Stitch be able to protect his home and loved ones? And how can he ever be reunited with his 'ohana if his presence always seems to endanger them?

"The Lilo & Stitch movie blew me away back in the day with its gorgeous, organic animation and its hugely fun sci-fi elements,” said writer Greg Pak. “But above all else, I loved its focus on the everyday struggles of an incredibly relatable family on the edge and a little girl and a little monster who somehow manage to save each other. It’s a thrill to have the chance to work on this new series with this tremendous team."

Writer Greg Pak is acclaimed for his work in comics and beyond with major contributions to Star Wars and Darth Vader comics. His tenure writing the Incredible Hulk is among the most cherished on the character and has inspired elements of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the film Thor: Ragnarok. He's also written extensively for X-Men, Superman, Batman, and others. His independent comic book series Mech Cadet Yu, co-created with artist Takeshi Miyazawa, has been adapted into the Mech Cadets animated series from Netflix.

He's joined by rising artist Giulia Giacomino in her major interior art debut, handling both line art and colors, and hailing from superstar Mirka Andolfo's Arancia Studio. Eagle-eyed readers of Dynamite's Disney titles may recognize her name from coloring contributions to Gargoyles. The creative team is anxious for fans to be introduced again to the wonderfully cute and kinetic Stitch — who they promise will not actually jump off the page, for better or worse!

The kickoff to this historic first ever Lilo & Stitch comic series features covers from four incredible artists. David Nakayama has been stamping his mark with his clean and expressive style on many Dynamite Disney titles, and he delivers an incredible surf's up scene of the titular duo. Superstar Joshua Middleton depicts a quieter moment of embrace back on the beach. Jennifer L. Meyer's ethereal, dream-like style showcases the beautiful landscapes of Hawaii and Stitch's rocking guitar skills. Last but not least, Craig Rousseau contributes a cool color bleed cover.

Dynamite's Disney line of comics is ready to kick off the new year strong, with this exciting epic from one of Walt Disney Animation Studios' biggest films!

LILO & STITCH #1 is solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ November 2023 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in January 2023. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies of the issue with their local comic book retailers. It will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more!
