Behemoth Comics launches new Publishing imprint Happy Tank
Following the success of licensed titles like Hotline Miami: Wildlife and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night #1 (the latter of which sold through 15,000 copies and received multiple printings), their recent global distribution deal with Simon & Schuster, and the new creator-owned series You Promised Me Darkness #1 invading the pull lists at the moment, Behemoth has announced today at ComicsPro that they’ve got even more coming.
Today, Behemoth revealed their newest imprint, Happy Tank which will focus on Young Adult/Mature action and comedy cartoon series, a comic book version of Late night TV Networks like Adult Swim. Kevin Roditeli will be the publisher and Rob Cannon will be Editor-in-chief.
Happy Tank plans to launch one new series per month for 2021 starting in May. A 50/50 mix between original IPs and licensed titles like MFKZ, the latter of which has an animated film on Netflix streaming now.
The 3 first series are Freak Snow (starting monthly in May) followed by MFKZ (June) and Cinnamon (July). The solicitation of Freak Snow #1 starts this week in the March Previews Catalog.
