The Thrilling Adventure Hour Arrives At BOOM! Studios
BOOM! Studios has announced The Thrilling Adventure Hour Vol.1 Discover Now Edition, on-sale in July 2018. This comic shop-exclusive collection of The Thrilling Adventure: Beyond Belief limited series (previously published by Image Comics) brings the stage show and podcast comedy series to life courtesy of creators Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, known for their work on Deadpool, Star Wars: Join The Resistance, and more.
Superstar artist Phil Hester provides interiors and the covers to The Thrilling Adventure Hour Vol.1 Discover Now Edition, which carries an MSRP of $14.99. This release marks the debut of The Thrilling Adventure Hour at BOOM! Studios and will be followed by a future collection including the complete The Thrilling Adventure: Sparks Nevada limited series. Fans can also look forward to all-new original The Thrilling Adventure Hour monthly comics stories in 2018 from Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, and more talent to be announced.
In Beyond Belief, meet Frank and Sadie Doyle: the toast of the upper crust. Headliners on the society pages. And, oh yes, they see ghosts. Trading quips and tossing back cocktails, the Doyles take what they want and hoodwink their clientele for the rest. Ghosts, vampires, werewolves, mummies, even diabolical gingerbread men are nothing but obstacles in the way of the liquor cabinet for our fast-talking, hard-drinking sleuths.
Created in 2005 by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, The Thrilling Adventure Hour is both a popular Hollywood stage show and Nerdist Industry Podcast that pays homage to the timeless Hollywood radio serials. These original and exciting stories crossing a myriad of genres have been performed by actors and comedians such as Paul F. Tompkins, Paget Brewster, Busy Philipps, Nathan Fillion, Linda Cardellini, Patton Oswalt, Neil Patrick Harris, and more.
In October, a standard edition of The Thrilling Adventure Hour Vol.1, featuring a different cover and including additional behind-the-scenes material, will be released to comic shops and bookstores worldwide, with an MSRP of $16.99. While this standard version will remain in print, The Thrilling Adventure Hour Vol.1 Discover Now Edition will be strictly limited to the initial print run and then never reprinted again.
The Thrilling Adventure Hour Vol.1 Discover Now Edition will be available for sale in July 2018 exclusively at local comic book shops or at the BOOM! Studios webstore, with copies arriving October 2018 at book stores.
