AHOY Comics Makes Their First Ever Appearance at Baltimore Comic Con
AHOY Comics — the startup publisher that has been asking readers to “expect more” from its comic book magazine format — is making its first ever appearance at Baltimore Comic-Con to promote the upcoming anthology series Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror and its new publishing initiative that features traditional, full-length comic book stories accompanied by extra material, including prose fiction, poetry, cartoon gags, and traditional comic book back-up stories.
The startup company is the brainchild of Publisher Hart Seely, an award-winning reporter whose humor and satire has appeared in The New York Times and on National Public Radio; two original editors of DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint, Tom Peyer and Stuart Moore; and Chief Creative Officer Frank Cammuso. The company is publishing two titles this month, The Wrong Earth and High Heaven, followed by Captain Ginger and Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror in October. Baltimore Comic-Con will be the new company’s first ever convention appearance.
Peyer will be joined at the convention by AHOY Comics “Dark Ops” Manager and Captain Ginger co-creator Stuart Moore, artist Jamal Igle of The Wrong Earth, and June Brigman and Roy Richardson, the artists of Captain Ginger, the upcoming space odyssey in which the human race has died out and cats have inherited the Earth (or, well, at least one starship).
Fans who want to meet the AHOY Comics founders “in the inevitably disappointing flesh” can attend their panel and visit the AHOY Comics booth (#2017):
