Paul Constant and Fred Harper are launching their new, peculiarly titled, Snelson comic book, out from Ahoy Comics in their August 2021 solicits and solicitations. But it seeks new relevance, as well as a variant cover by Hate's Peter Bagge who has a very different political background as well. Here is Ahoy Comics' full line-up for the month.
SNELSON #1 CVR A HARPER (MR)
JUN211212 – SNELSON #1 CVR B BAGGE INCV (MR) – 3.99
(W) Paul Constant (A / CA) Fred Harper
In the 1990s, "edgy" standup comic Melville Snelson had it all – but twenty-five years later, his jokes come off as tired and offensive. Desperate for a comeback, Snelson sets out on tour with a group of young, socially conscious comedians. Can a '90s has-been hit the big time, or is Snelson about to be canceled for good? A hilarious, definitely adult contemporary satire that mocks the dying breaths of white male entitlement, from the writer of AHOY's Planet of the Nerds.
