EVERETT, Wash., March 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Funko, Inc. ("Funko,” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:FNKO), a leading pop culture consumer products company, today announced it will be releasing a series of books based on its own designs and characters from Wetmore Forest.

The books will be sold online and in-store exclusively at Barnes & Noble along with accompanying Funko merchandise beginning June 15th, 2019.

“We’re excited to expand the storylines of our beloved Wetmore family through a book series available at the bookseller with the largest number of retail outlets in the United States,” said Senior Vice President of Global Sales, Johanna Gepford. “Children will be delighted to follow the adventures of characters created by the same creative geniuses that produce highly sought after Funko products.”

In partnership with Sterling Publishing, Funko will be showcasing the books at both the London Book Fair and Bologna Children’s Book Fair.

Wetmore Forest was created to depict an enchanting forest and encourage exploration and discovery among Funko fans. Funko’s loveable lighthearted Pop! Monsters include Bugsy Wingnut, Tumblebee, Butterhorn, Snuggletooth and others.

This is an awesome idea. I wonder if this is just the start of books. If these are successful, will Funko branch out and make more books like Freddy themed books?

I will be curious for the storyline and the production of these books. I know quite a few folks over at Sterling publishing and they are great folks. A small publishing house who can dedicate the man power to doing these.

I wonder how quickly they are going to push these out. But I am also interested in the storyline and format. Board? Paper over board? Flapped? That usually sends a message about the product. And collectors who want perfect items are going to be stressed over these. Shipping books can often result in bent covers, smashed corners etc.
