Wyld At Heart
Brian Lynch goes back to the future with Bill & Ted. Excellent!
Almost 25 years sinc e Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter played their last air guitar solos in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the two headbangers are rocking out again in Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Return, a new six- issue miniseries from Boom! Studios and writer Brian Lynch. “It takes place five seconds after Bogus Journey and hits the ground running,” says Lynch. “All our favourite characters are back and we advance their stories. But it’s also a story about two best friends who go on this huge adventure and, even if you don’t know the movies, it’s a fun ride so new readers won’t be lost.”
The tale begins after Wyld Stallyns’ triumphant performance at the Battle of the Bands and the world wants to see what Bill and Ted will do to top it. “They’ve played their one song in front of the entire planet, and the entire planet loves it… and immediately wants more,” says Lynch. “With the attention of literally everyone on Earth, including their new wives, their sons, aliens, and Death himself, Bill and Ted have to figure out what to do next.”
Their solution is to travel forward in time and learn about their own exploits from history. In the future they run into the teenage Chuck De Nomolos, their arch- enemy from Bogus Journey. “It’s Bill and Ted in the future figuring out what Bill and Ted in the past were supposed to do, all the while helping Chuck De Nomolos so he doesn’t kill them when he’s older. That’s just the start. There’s hopping all over different time periods, alternate realities, the end of time itself. It gets pretty epic.” Most nonheinous indeed.
