Courtesy of AHOY Comics, we have your first look at four of their titles out this October. The titles include new series like Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Death #1, and ongoing series like Snelson #3, Black’s Myth #3, and Second Coming: Only Begotten Son #6.
Check out the cover art and advance story details for some of the most important AHOY Comics out this Halloween season, including the debut of the ongoing hilarious Edgar Allan Poe series. Plus the finale to Mark Russell, Richard Pace, and Leonard Kirk’s Second Coming sequel arrives too.
We also have details on Black’s Myth #4–we featured exclusively a variant for issue #2–and the story about the “faintly famous comedian Melville Snelson” which some have said is based on Patton Oswalt. In fact, Patton Oswalt has said, “I love this book. I know this character. Wait — AM I this character? Damn you, Fred Harper!”
