The super fun Thrilling Adventure Hour podcast may be over, but the stories are continuing in comic books.  BOOM! Studios will be releasing an all-new series beginning in July from creators Ben Acker and Ben Blacker and artist M.J. Erickson.  The comic will follow society page headliners Frank and Sadie Doyle who can see ghosts.  During a night drinking with friends, things go horribly wrong at a haunted house.  

“We're utterly thrilled to call BOOM! Studios the new home for Thrilling Adventure Hour comics,” said writers Ben Acker and Ben Blacker. “In addition to collecting our previous, heretofore uncollected, TAH comics work, we're excited to bring new stories featuring married mediums Frank and Sadie Doyle, Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars, and more. We're looking at the first arc of this new Thrilling Adventure Hour series as an opportunity to re-introduce these characters and bring forth the fun, the humor, and the grounded storytelling that we love about the show and the podcast. We think new readers, as well as existing Adventurekateers, will fall in love with these characters (all over again).”

The Thrilling Adventure Hour #1 will feature a main cover by Jonathan Case and a variant cover by Natacha Bustos.

“I've been a fan of the Bens and the Thrilling Adventure Hour for years, so I'm excited to be a part of the latest addition to the comics,” said artist M.J. Erickson. “The characters are vivid and hilarious, and I love the show's mash-up, no-limits approach to classic genres. I'm also passionate about history and literature, so I can't wait to expand on the nostalgic and creative visuals that have been explored in the previous comics.”

The Thrilling Adventure Hour has a comedic voice and creative vibrancy unlike anything else in comics thanks to the incredible characters created by Acker and Blacker,” said Cameron Chittock, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “We’re thrilled that BOOM! Studios is the home for the latest shenanigans of Frank and Sadie Doyle, and all the lovable character they will bring along for the ride.”

In addition to the new series, BOOM! Studios will also release a new edition of The Thrilling Adventure Hour: A Spirited Romance.  First there’s a special comic shop exclusive edition in July collecting The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents: Beyond Belief series previously published by Image Comics.  It will feature a new cover by Phil Hester.  October will see the release of the standard version with a different cover.  Both will retail for $14.99.  The comic shop version is limited and will never be reprinted.
