Arguably the most popular part of the Despicable Me franchise, the Twinkie-shaped Minions are returning to comics in November, and CBR has the first details about the diminutive new series.
Minions: Viva Le Boss reunites writer Stephane Lapuss and artist Renaud Collin for the third miniseries from Titan Comics to star the popular animated stars. The new series sends the gibberish-spouting Minions on an adventure through history to find the most elusive of treasures: The perfect Boss.

Titan Comics are proud to announce that Illumination’s Minions - the breakout mascots of Universal and Illumination’s global phenomenon Despicable Me animated film series - are set to return to comics this November in an all-new series, Minions: Viva Le Boss.
Spinning out of the highly successful Despicable Me franchise, the Minions movie garnered worldwide acclaim as well as grossing over $1 billion at the box office in 2015 with their first stand-alone movie. The latest installment in the film series, Despicable Me 3, was released in June 2017 and also grossed over $1 billion; cementing Despicable Me as one of the most successful animated film franchises in movie history.
In Titan Comics’ new Minions series, which is written by Stephane Lapuss, featuring art from Renaud Collin, the yellow Minions journey through history looking for a truly villainous leader– but are they doomed to be Minions without a master?
Minions Viva Le Boss #1 expands Titan Comics’ catalogue of Minions comics and graphic novels, which includes Minions: Vol. 1: Banana and Minions: Vol. 2: Evil Panic.
This despicable new comic series will be available to order through the September edition of Diamond PREVIEWS catalogue.
