King Features Syndicate, a unit of Hearst, has announced a lineup of upcoming book releases for “Cuphead” fans from Dark Horse Books, including the new graphic novel, “Cuphead Volume 3: Colorful Crack-Ups & Chaos,” and two art books titled, “The Art of The Cuphead Show” and “The Art of Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course.” The announcement includes the official cover reveals for both titles.

“Cuphead Volume 3: Colorful Crack-Ups & Chaos” features a new collection of chaos and capers. The 72-page graphic novel will be available Aug. 20 in bookstores and Aug. 21 in comic shops. 

“The Art of The Cuphead Show” explores the creation story of the animated series. The book will be available Sept. 3 in bookstores and Sept. 4 in comic shops.

“The Art of Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course” will be available Oct. 8 in bookstores and Oct. 9 in comic shops.

“The world of ‘Cuphead’ features some of the most visually compelling artwork created in the modern age, and we are thrilled that Dark Horse, who has been a committed partner since the game first launched, is now taking fans deep inside the creative process behind the game and animated series with two new beautiful art books,” says Christina Nix Lynch, senior director, licensing, King Features. “As ‘Cuphead’s’ universe continues to expand from gaming to television to books, we’re committed to building a lasting legacy for Cuphead, Mugman and their companions that keep fans immersed in the adventures of the Inkwell Isles.” 

“One of the hardest things to do when bringing any art to life is spending so much time with your head down, often working in secret on things you aren’t quite ready to show off,” says Maja Moldenhauer, chief operating officer, Studio MDHR. “With that in mind, we couldn’t be happier that the team at Dark Horse is helping both ourselves and the amazing creatives at Netflix Animation pull back the curtain on The Delicious Last Course and The Cuphead Show! So much love and attention has gone into making these latest art book releases truly meaningful deep dives into the world of ‘Cuphead,’ and we can’t wait for our community to get their hands on both titles.”

All three books will be available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and TFAW.
