Hasbro has teamed with IDW Publishing to launch a Littlest Pet Shop comic.

Created by Hasbro Studios, Littlest Pet Shop is an animated comedy series, currently airing on the Hub Network.

The series follows the adventures of Blythe Baxter who discovers she can talk with her animal friends.

Written by Georgia Ball and drawn by artists Nico Pena and Antonio Campo, the comic will be available from this May.

Hasbro director of global publishing, Michael Kelly, said: “With the incredible triumph of My Little Pony comics, it should come as no surprise that we are now looking toward Littlest Pet Shop to continue that success.

“It’s wonderful to be part of the resurgence of interest in all-ages comics, and we are certain that Littlest Pet Shop comics will be welcomed with great excitement by readers.”

IDW managing editor, David Hedgecock, added: “We are thrilled to be working hand in hand with Hasbro on another of their all-ages properties.

“We are excited for the opportunity to continue to grow this category with fun, exciting fresh stories that help build on the success of other IDW hits like My Little Pony.”
