Boom! Studios has announced a couple pieces of news regarding The Thrilling Adventure Hour, including a new comic series. Written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, with art by M.J. Erickson, the new weekly series kicks off this July with The Thrilling Adventure Hour issue #1.
“We’re utterly thrilled to call BOOM! Studios the new home for Thrilling Adventure Hour comics,” said writers Ben Acker and Ben Blacker. “In addition to collecting our previous, heretofore uncollected, TAH comics work, we’re excited to bring new stories featuring married mediums Frank and Sadie Doyle, Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars, and more. We’re looking at the first arc of this new Thrilling Adventure Hour series as an opportunity to re-introduce these characters and bring forth the fun, the humor, and the grounded storytelling that we love about the show and the podcast. We think new readers, as well as existing Adventurekateers, will fall in love with these characters (all over again).”
The comic’s main cover is by artist Jonathan Case, with a variant cover by Natacha Bustos:
“I’ve been a fan of the Bens and the Thrilling Adventure Hour for years, so I’m excited to be a part of the latest addition to the comics,” said artist M.J. Erickson. “The characters are vivid and hilarious, and I love the show’s mash-up, no-limits approach to classic genres. I’m also passionate about history and literature, so I can’t wait to expand on the nostalgic and creative visuals that have been explored in the previous comics.”
Frank and Sadie Doyle are the toast of the upper crust – headliners on the society pages…and they see ghosts. When one night of having a drink (or ten) with friends goes horribly, and perhaps predictably, wrong at a haunted house, the Doyles find themselves in a situation beyond belief.
The second piece of news is a limited edition reprint of the Image Comics series The Thrilling Adventure Hour presents: Beyond Belief, entitled The Thrilling Adventure Hour: A Spirited Romance Discover Now Edition. The book will be released alongside the new series in July. A standard edition will follow in October, and both editions MSRP for just $14.99.
