As big as the Hello Kitty franchise is, there’s never been a Hello Kitty comic book . . . until now. VIZ Media came out with the “Hello Kitty: Fashion Music Wonderland” SDCC exclusive comic book over the summer, and the first official Hello Kitty comic release, “Hello Kitty: Here We Go!” comes out in October. A second edition of “Fashion Music Wonderland” comes out in November (the cover will be different, but the content the same), and the volumes “Delicious!” and “Surprise!” will follow.

To get this going, VIZ hired several talented writers and artists and MTV Geek spoke with three of them. Jacob Chabot, whose “Mighty Skullboy Army” is published by Dark Horse and who’s illustrated VIZ Media’s “Voltron Force: Shelter from the Storm” and “Voltron Force: True Colors,” told MTV Geek about working on the franchise, what to expect from it, and if he’s a hero to little girls. Ian McGinty, who works on VIZ’s “Uglydoll” and KaBOOM’s “Adventure Time: Candy Capers,” talked about breaking into comics, writing and drawing for Hello Kitty, and the big surprise of Hello Kitty’s boyfriend. Stephanie Buscema, who’s been working on IDW’s “My Little Pony” and Dynamite’s “Red Sonja,” spoke about being a long-time Hello Kitty fan and her work as a Hello Kitty guest artist.
