THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR COMES TO COMICS
Comics have inspired multi-billion dollars films and have expanded into novels, radio plays, and countless lines of toys and licensed products. Now they're branching into podcasts with Thrilling Adventure Hour. Ben Acker and Ben Blacker are bringing two new books to Image Comics based on the Nerdist podcast: The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents...Sparks Nevada: Marshal on Mars and The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents... Beyond Belief. Both series are scheduled to begin in February 2015. Here are the write-ups for each one.
For Sparks Nevada: Marshal on Mars #1 you'll want to shine your astro spurs and don your robot fists! Justice rides a rocket steed across the crimson plains of the fourth planet, where one man brings fear to robots and aliens... and hope to humans who make this frontier planet their home. He is... Sparks Nevada: Marshal on Mars by Acker & Blacker, J. Bone, Jordie Bellaire, and Marshall Dillon.
In Beyond Belief #1, by Acker & Blacker, Phil Hester, John Rauch, and Marshall Dillon, it's time to send the little ones to dream land and set your radio's dial to "spooky." Steel yourself for mysterious suspense in... Beyond Belief! Meet Frank and Sadie Doyle, toast of the upper crust! Headliners on the society pages. And, oh yes... they see ghosts! Who cares what evil lurks in the hearts of men... unless evil's carrying the martini tray!
"We are tremendous fans of Image, both the caliber and quality of books they put out," said Acker and Blacker. "We couldn't be more (ahem) thrilled to be producing books with Image, the home of so many of our favorite comics and creators. We're excited for the Thrilling Adventure Hour to be a part of the Image family, for that big 'I' is a seal of quality."
