I have loved Hunt Emerson's comics since I was a small child. His album covers for The Goons was probably my first experience, and discovering Firkin The Cat as a teenager was… instructive. He has worked widely, from the extremes of Outrageous Tales Of The Old Testament and Lady Chatterley's Lover to the all-ages Little Plum for the Beano. His recent Bloke's Progress from longstanding is pretty damn amazing and now he's making another move for the US market, returning to Ahoy Comics' comedy anthology Edgar Allan Poe's Snifter Of Terror, out in October, alongside Dean R. Motter, Alex Ogle, and sitting prettily alongside Ahoy's October 2019 solicitations with Mark Russell and Richard Pace's Second Coming #4…
EDGAR ALLAN POES SNIFTER OF TERROR SEASON 2 #1
AHOY Comics' snarky anthology/desecration of Edgar Allan Poe returns for a new season-beginning with the ultimate Poe mashup! In Dean Motter's "The Tell-Tale Black Cask of Usher," the drink-addled writer falls prey to his own horrific imagination. Hunt Emerson offers another slapstick "Poe and the Black Cat." A selection of horrific prose and pictures rounds out the issue. Painted cover by Richard Williams (MAD).
SECOND COMING #4 (MR)
Jesus Christ is missing! Sunstar recruits a team of lesser costumed heroes (who resent his great power) to assist him in the search for the Son of God! Plus the usual AHOY prose fiction, beautifully illustrated.
EDGAR ALLAN POES SNIFTER OF TERROR TP VOL 01
A comedic collection of classic tales and brand new stories, adapted by comics' snarkiest talents, in this cross between Drunk History and Tales from the Crypt, all introduced by Edgar Allan Poe at his drunkest. Collecting all of the comics from the 6-issue AHOY Comics series, plus terrifying prose and poetry features.
PLANET OF THE NERDS TP VOL 01
