This is the comic book for fans to find out what happens when a horror vlogger, her jock boyfriend, a B-movie scream queen, a fanboy, a half-baked dead beat, and something called a Faddle are brought together by the mysterious Boo-Keeper to right wrongs in the puppet “horroverse”! This is IN YOUR FELT puppet horror action the way only comic book publisher American Mythology can bring it! You’d better leave the “street” to the birds and get screaming for the CPHT premiere!
Everything’s better with puppets! And puppet horror just found a new home with this fresh comic book series by publisher American Mythology. Set in a world all its own, aka the Horrorverse, the comic takes on some of the most classic horror troupes…with a twist! These puppet adventurers never asked to be thrust into the middle of a summer camp gone wrong, and they certainly weren’t expecting to come face to felt with legendary slasher icon Clarence the Cleaver, but they’ll have to figure out a way to escape his slashing wrath, get along with each other, and maybe find their way back home! Unfortunately for them, the Boo-Keeper has other plans for his new friends.
The series will be written by veteran horror comic writer S.A. Check with interior art for the series by Matt Hansel. Cartoon Puppet Horror Theatre #1 will come with three covers – the main cover by former Disney artist Adrian Ropp, a variant group cover by interior artist Matt Hansel, and a special “Shining” homage movie poster edition, also by Hansel.
Cartoon Puppet Horror Theatre #1 is advanced solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ January Previews catalog and slated for release in March of 2023.

Veteran comic book scribe Don McGregor – the man who breathed four-color life into Marvel Comics’ Black Panther and Killraven, among others; DC Comics’ Nathaniel Dusk; as well as his own Detectives, Inc. and Sabre – joins the ranks of American Mythology Productions with his long-awaited return to “The Fox” with Zorro: Flights.
Making his start in comicdom writing stories for the legendary Warren Publishing, he moved on to Marvel Comics in 1972 as a proofreader before establishing himself as a writer and editor. He also wrote Batman and other characters at the Distinguished Competition, and is well-known for his renowned work on Zorro for Topps Comics and Papercutz, respectively.
With this three-issue limited series featuring art by Vincenzo Carratu and Claudio Avella, McGregor sets Zorro on an adventure for the first time in 15 years by bringing him face to face with a fire-breathing dragon. But something doesn’t seem right. Although the creature soars in the air-breathing fire and fury, it appears to be controlled by mere man.
As a bonus for fans and collectors everywhere, American Mythology will release the first chapter in this epic story with four covers. They include: the Main Cover by Roy Allan Martinez, the Variant Cover by Carratu, a Limited Edition Color Photo Cover, and the uber-rare “Century Edition” Black & White Photo Cover which is limited to just 100 printed.
Zorro Flights #1 features an on-sale date of August 25, 2021.
