Feast your eyes on these pages. That's "Good Times With Weapons" in comic-book form. And if you know German, feel free to translate the entry and post it here.

It is very surprising news!

Apparently, secretly, quietly a South Park cartoon magazine called into life. Why not at Comedy Central, which reported the website is still strange, because after all, these are my knowledge, the first official South Park comic books in general. In addition is also available on the Publisher site yet about it. Perhaps it is a test edition, see how it arrives. You can already buy, and on 11 May, should the second coming.

Each issue contains a complete sequence for 3.50 € as a comic, although nothing is drawn separately, but original scenes from the series are provided with balloons. The first issue is "Good Times with Weapons", in the second it will be the pilot episode "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe". There is also always add a (more or less) suitable extra. The first issue is an inflatable machine gun.
Many thanks to Jaja , the magazine discovered and new photos of it has made:


Basically its the south park 2011 annual which has the storys Good times with weapons & Cartman Gets an Anal Probe

Kind of disappointed that nothing will be drawn (just screencaps) for the comic, but it looks epic nonetheless!
