Earlier this week, BOOM! Studios announced the new name for their all-ages imprint; the payoff to their “BOOM! Kids 2.0″ teaser first released last September: “kaboom!”
Well, some, including Pipeline columnist Augie De Bileck Jr., remembered that there was a comic by Jeph Loeb and Jeff Matsuda in the late’90s called Kaboom (sans exclamation point), published under Rob Liefeld’s Awesome Comics.
Someone else who remembered? Rob Liefeld, who tweeted thusly, in response to Augie:
And yes @augiedb my lawyers are drafting a complaint. Busy week. Shouldn’t be an issue since we released the KABOOM! HC and trade last year.
BOOM! Studios declined comment on the matter at this time.
