The Robonic Stooges Return To Comics!
American Mythology is bringing a Saturday morning cartoon favorite – The Robonic Stooges – to a comic book shop near you this April! The Three Stooges have been bringing the funny to fans through the comic publisher for the last five years, so the company decided to give The Boys an upgrade before the 100 years of Stooges kick off in 2022!
If you remember Saturday morning cartoons, you remember the Robonic Stooges, which originally aired as its own series in 1977 -78. The series featured Moe, Larry, and Curly as robonically-altered bumbling superheroes who operated from their very own junk yard headquarters under the direction of Agent 000 (pronounced Oh-Oh-Oh), who ran the Super Hero Employment Agency! The series was developed by Norman Maurer, Moe Howard’s son-in-law and the creative force behind The Three Stooges comics of the 60s and 70s. The standalone series ran for 16 episodes, and American Mythology Comics decided, well, that just wasn’t enough robo-stoogeness!
The comic will launch in April with a special parody story – The Imbecile Gauntlet by Three Stooges’ long-time scribe, S.A. Check. The story pits The Robonic Stooges against the inter-galactic threat known as Oreganose! The second story for the issue, Fright at the Museum, was written by Jordan Gershowitz. Interior art for the issue is provided by fan-favorite Jorge Pacheco and new-to-the-series artist, Philip Murphy. Cover art for the book is by Eisner award-winning artist, Eric Shanower, and Jorge Pacheco. This issue marks the first time the Robonic Stooges will venture onto the pages of comics and the publisher promises an all-ages treat for fans new and old alike.
The Robonic Stooges will be advance solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ February 2021 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in April of 2021. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies with their local comic book retailers.
