Yo-kai Watch: THE COMIC BOOK!

Holy Yo-kai Butlers, Batman!

Discovered by “succubusdicks” on the Yo-kai Watch subreddit, Yo-kai Watch is getting a comic book in April 2017!

I used to be big into comic books as a kid, then as a man-kid I tried to get back into them with My Little Pony and The Powerpuff Girls, but I eventually couldn’t afford the drive to the comic store and back along with the prices, so I’ll be trying to find a way to subscribe online this time … or just buy each issue individually, since that’s likely easier.

MTMTE 50 cover.

I really love this artwork.
Did you see all the heads in the stone?
Some of them are dead, some not.
Meaning? Is there a meaning?
Who knows.
But however, I love this artwork so much <3

James Roberts posted:
‘Any day now you’ll see the covers to MTMTE #50. Do not draw any conclusions from them. They represent the series, not the story inside…’

We will see right?

But MTMTE 50 and The Transformers 50 will be double sized! That’s amazing.
