Mark Russell and Peter Snejberg’s Monstrously Funny Cereal Is a Dark and Distinctly Adult Take on Breakfast Cereal Monsters

They lurk in the shadows—and in your shopping cart. The dangerous and the damned, the monstrous and the mutilated, the devils who snarl at innocent children from boxes of sugar cereal. AHOY Comics is proud (and slightly terrified) to present Cereal, a dark, distinctly adult, and lovingly funny take on an earlier generation’s beloved monsters from writer Mark Russell and artist Peter Snejbjerg. The volume collects every chapter from AHOY’s Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of… anthologies, as well as an all-new three-part conclusion.

The Marquis de Cocoa, recently transformed into a vampire, braves the agony of sunrise to throw his famous breakfast parties, where he plays his deadly games with such oddly familiar characters as the Quaker, Beau Berrie, and The Brute. This is their secret backstory, a chilling tale of a war of monsters who kill without remorse and stay crunchy in milk. Three climatic chapters—42 never-before-published pages of comics—complete this volume.

Cereal will be available in stores on October 12, 2023.
