Fox’s Bob’s Burgers has just wrapped up another season, and that means a good number of people out there will soon be suffering from a condition called TWS, or “Tina Withdrawal Syndrome.” Symptoms include monotone groaning, an increased obsession with touching butts, and just a general sense of wishing that Bob’s Burgers was still on.
Well, for those suffering from TWS, hope may be just around the corner. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bob’s Burgers is getting its own comic book spin-off from the very writers and artists who make the show. “If you like Bob’s Burgers and you like comic books, then you may feel like you’re living in one of the greatest times in human history,” series creator Loren Bouchard says, adding, “Of course, we could really mess it up. Then you’d feel like you were living in one of the worst times in human history.” Seems like a safe bet either way.
The first issue is set to come out this August from comic book publisher Dynamite, and it will reportedly feature five separate stories, each highlighting a different member of the Belcher family: “Louise’s Unsolved Mysteries,” “A Gene Belcher Original Musical,” “Letters Written by Linda,” ”Bob’s Burgers Of The Day,” and of course, “Tina’s Erotic Friend Fiction.” It’s unclear whether these adventures will take place in the same universe as the TV show, but it would certainly clear up any continuity issues the writers may have if these stories are considered non-canonical. (Non-canonical!) For example, maybe they could answer any lingering questions in a crossover event titled, “Crisis On Infinite Wonder Wharfs.”
