Stuart Moore and Fred Harper Are Saving The Universe One Pint At a Time With Highball from AHOY Comics

Meet Highball, ace pilot of the Earth Space Corp. He’s the best shot in the galaxy, except for one big problem: he can only hit the target when he’s dead drunk.

This is Highball, AHOY Comics’ latest hilarious series about a sozzled space pilot attempting to save the galaxy one pint at a time, by writer Stuart Moore, Fred Harper, colorist Lee Loughridge, and letterer Rob Steen! The first issue of the absurd galactic series hits stores this fall with a main cover by Harper and a variant cover by David Rubin

In the far future, Earth’s finest pilot, call-sign Highball, finds himself caught between two alien races: the arrogant, cerebral Mentok and the fierce, birdlike Q’k’q’rr’kkk. In his one-man Byter ship, Highball must defuse an alien bomb and survive against a vicious enemy. But Highball has a deadly weakness: He can only hit the target when he’s stone drunk. In his quest to save the galaxy, Highball stumbles headfirst into obstacles such as nefarious space enemies, fellow pilots, the maddening bureaucracy of Space Corp—and, of course, his own shameful inadequacies!

Highball will be published monthly by AHOY Comics and stumbling into a store near you on September 7, 2022.

The Wrong Earth: Purple #1

The Wrong Earth Expands with a Special Event Featuring Gail Simone, Mark Waid, Mark Russell, Stuart Moore, and more!

Bestselling writers Gail Simone and Mark Waid are joining AHOY Comics Editor-in-Chief Tom Peyer, Second Coming writer Mark Russell, and Captain Ginger writer Stuart Moore to write world-shattering, money-grabbing, stand-alone The Wrong Earth specials. These comics will feature art by Bill Morrison, Walter Geovani, Michael Montenat, Fred Harper, Leonard Kirk, and Greg Scott, with covers by The Wrong Earth co-creator and artist Jamal Igle. Each special will have a variant cover by Gene Ha; there will also be  variant covers by Dan Parent, Jerry Ordway, and other artists. The multiverse-spanning monthly event will begin in March with the release of The Wrong Earth: Trapped on Teen Planet #1, written by Gail Simone, with art by Bill Morrison, Walter Geovani, and Rob Lean, with colors by Andy Troy, and lettering by Rob Steen

Each of The Wrong Earth world-shattering special event one-shots will present a stand-alone, 25-page story that expands on the multiverse first introduced in AHOY Comics’ flagship title by Peyer and Igle, wherein the campy Dragonflyman of Earth Alpha switched places with the gritty Dragonfly of Earth Omega and chaos ensued.

The first issue to hit stores, The Wrong Earth: Trapped on Teen Planet #1, finds grim-and-gritty vigilante Dragonfly whisked to an Earth of teenagers, malt shops, love triangles, and nonstop jokes. Will they win him over—or will his violent methods infect their world? The issue is illustrated by Bill Morrison, Walter Geovani, and Rob Lean, with colors by Andy Troy, and lettering by Rob Steen. The Wrong Earth: Trapped on Teen Planet #1 will feature variant covers by both Gene Ha and Dan Parent. The issue marks the AHOY Comics debut of legendary writer Gail Simone.

The Wrong Earth world-shattering special event continues in subsequent months with:

  • The Wrong Earth: Fame & Fortune #1 from writer Mark Russell, artist Michael Montenat, colorist Andy Troy, and letterer Rob Steen. On sale in April, this comic from the writer of Billionaire Island provides a satirical look at two different versions of Richard Fame and how, despite the best and worst intentions, huge gobs of money determine their own results. 
  • The Wrong Earth: Purple #1 from writer Stuart Moore, artist Fred Harper, and letterer Rob Steen. On sale in May, this one-shot introduces Earth-Kappa, a dark but glossy world of big hair, shoulder pads, Wall Street traders, rubber super-suits, and funk music. Get the funk up! 
  • The Wrong Earth: Confidence Men #1 by writer Mark Waid, artist Leonard Kirk, and letterer Rob Steen. On sale in June, it’s the tale of two sidekicks! On campy Earth-Alpha, circumstances force kid sidekick Stinger to become Dragonflyman’s mentor! On gritty Earth-Omega, Dragonfly and Stinger go to war—against each other! 
  • The Wrong Earth: Meat #1 from writer Tom Peyer, artist Greg Scott, and letterer Rob Steen, on sale in July. On campy Earth-Alpha, Dragonflyman and Stinger follow clues to foil the beef-themed crimes of Dr. Meat. On gritty Earth Omega, a tragedy compels Dragonfly to imprison a criminal in an abandoned slaughterhouse—just to have someone to talk to. 

The Wrong Earth: Trapped on Teen Planet #1, will debut on March 2.
