AHOY Comics have been knocking it out of the park with their superheroes Dragonfly and Dragonflyman. Having debuted in The Wrong Earth (you can get volume 1 now), the characters are flips of each other. One is from an Earth where superheroes are more of an innocent classic nature. The other is from a gritty world reminiscent of 80s and 90s superheroes. The original series was an homage, a love letter, and a spoof all in one. It’s a must for fans of the superhero genre.
Their adventures continue in Dragonfly and Dragonflyman and in the third issue, we’re introduced to Lady Dragonflyman!
Check out the solicits and covers for issue 3 and 4 of the series written by Tom Peyer with art by Peter Krause, and cover by Jamal Igle.
