EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR Season Two

By Various, featuring covers by Richard Williams
Debuting in October, 2019

Once upon a midnight dreary, AHOY Comics assembled acclaimed comic book creators to mangle Edgar Allan Poe’s classic gothic tales and create brand new stories in the tradition of Tales from the Crypt and Drunk History. Just in time for Halloween, EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR Season Two kicks off with writer/artist Dean Motter and inker Alex Ogle’s ultimate Poe mash-up —“The Tell-Tale Black Cask of Usher”—in which the drink-addled writer falls prey to his own horrific imagination. Upcoming issues will include a new spooky, sugary cereal story by Mark Russell and artist Peter Snejbjerg as well as stories by Alisa Kwitney, Paul Constant, Carol Lay, Linda Medley, and Greg Scott. Each and every issue of EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR features Hunt Emerson’s slapstick “Poe and the Black Cat” backup story as well as a cover by legendary Mad Magazine artist Richard Williams.

AHOY will publish the EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR Volume One trade paperback in comic shops on October 2nd and in bookstores on October 15th. EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR Season Two debuts on October 9th.

SDCC 2019: AHOY Comics and the Delcourt Group Sign a Deal for Distribution and Translation in France

AHOY Comics

AHOY Comics and the Delcourt Group are partnering on a deal to distribute select AHOY Comic graphic novels in France and inviting readers to “espérer plus.” The announcement was made jointly by both companies in advance of San Diego Comic-Con 2019

Delcourt will launch the deal by translations of three acclaimed AHOY Comics titles:


L’AUTRE TERRE (THE WRONG EARTH) by writer Tom Peyer, artists Jamal Igle and Juan Castro and colorist Andy Troy. PUBLICATION DATE: January 2020

Meet your new favorite superheroes: the crime-fighting Dragonflyman and the grim, vigilante Dragonfly. With THE WRONG EARTH writer Tom Peyer and artist Jamal Igle deliver the superhero satire you didn’t know you needed. 

“if you love superheroes, you NEED this. If you HATE superheroes, this will change your mind.” ― Mark Millar 


CAPTAIN GINGER by writer Stuart Moore, artists June Brigman and Roy Richardson and colorist Veronica Gandini. PUBLICATION DATE: July 2020

When the human race died out, the cats inherited the Earth! Or at least a starship. Legendary comic book artist June Brigman and writer Stuart Moore present CAPTAIN GINGER, a graphic novel featuring cats united against a hostile universe—and their own worst feline instincts. Featuring an introduction by award-winning writer/ artist Walter Simonson.

“The best books usually transport me into a world with which I am largely unfamiliar and reveal its mysteries to me, whether it’s the mean streets of a great urban metroplex, a small village lying somewhere on a distant steppe in central Asia, or a starship full of individualist cats trying to keep it together long enough to survive…these may very well be the characters that June was born to draw and Stuart was born to write!” ― Walter Simonson 


SECOND COMING by writer Mark Russell and artist Richard Pace, featuring a cover by Amanda Conner. PUBLICATION DATE: October 2020.

In the controversial, satirical SECOND COMING by New York Times bestselling writer Mark Russell and acclaimed artist Richard Pace, Jesus Christ resumes His Holy Mission after God commands Earth’s mightiest superhero, Sunstar, to accept Him as his roommate and teach Him how to use His power in a… more powerful way. Jesus, shocked at the way humans have twisted his message over two millennia, vows to straighten it out. 

“No one captures the lyrical disconnect between real personalities in fantasy bodies like Mark Russell. SECOND COMING is beautifully drawn and hilariously blunt. It’s ribald, cranky, and warm at the same time, and it might be my new favorite thing.” ― Gail Simone

PLANET OF THE NERDS #2

Review: Captain Ginger #1

When the human race died out, the cats inherited the Earth! Or at least one starship. Now the intrepid Captain Ginger struggles to keep his fellow felines united against a hostile universe.

How many cat jokes can you pack into 35 pages of comic? Writer Stuart Moore seems to take up that challenge in Captain Ginger, a pulp-ish adventure that sees humanity destroyed and cats evolved and spacefaring. It’s a crazy fun concept and the comic seems to continue AHOY Comics‘ mix of playing it straight and being a joke at the same time.

Every page seems pack with some sort of sight gag through the art of June Brigman, inks by Roy Richardson, and colors of Veronica Gandini. Richard Starkings and Jimmy Bentancourt provide the lettering. From small details on the cats to the inclusion of scratching posts, the comic doesn’t take itself too seriously and seems to be having fun with it all.

It being an AHOY release, there’s lots of extras including a comic from Shannon Wheeler, some interviews, and prose entry from Grant Morrison that includes an illustration from Phil Hester.

If you’re an individual who enjoys cat memes, this is a comic for you and though I’m not really a fan at all, I still found the comic entertaining. It’s a prefect mix of cat jokes and space adventuring that sets up a world I want to find out more about. It’s another win for AHOY Comics continuing their manta that we should expect more.

Review: The 99: Beginnings

Hari Kondabolu recently made a documentary about one of the world ‘s recognizable, as well as its most stereotypical characters ever in animation, Apu. The very fact that the character is not voiced by someone of Indian decent, is a tradition, that goes back as old as the artform itself. As some people know that the character of Cleveland Brown on Family Guy is not voiced by an African American actor. The difference between Cleveland and Apu is not that one is more problematic than the other, but it is a matter of quantity.

In Kondabolu’s documentary, “The Problem with Apu,” most the interview subjects who grew up in America, expose the world to what most to of us know, Apu is not representative of any experience by any South Asian American. He also exposes, a systemic issue, one where every South Asian American, growing up, is identified with this character, one where the actor himself, refuses to even be interviewed for. The movie drives home that representation matters and that applies to all art forms. So, when I heard a bout a few years back, of The 99, I was intrigued to read this book about Muslim superheroes.

We are introduced to Dr. Ramzi Razem, who as a child discovered the Noor Stones, and the power they held, while visiting Spain. Years later, he became obsessed with finding al 99 of them, which were spread across the globe, and just each stone carried a unique power, it required a unique individual to possess it and wield its power. The reader gets to find out how each member of the 99 comes to find their own stone, and how they found their synergy with it. By book’s end, Razem, has assembled an awesome fighting force, that has to be ready for the war that is coming.

Overall, a great book that shows diversity matters and that great stories can come form anywhere in the world. The story by Naif Al-Mutawa and Stuart Moore is intricate, adventurous, and fun. The art by June Brigman, Albert Deschesne, Monica Kubina, Roy Richardson, and Dan Panosian is gorgeous. Altogether, a great book to a new universe that looks like the world.
