Dynamite To Publish Kevin Smith’s Yoga Hosers Prequel Comic

by Hannah Means Shannon

 

In the lead-up to SDCC ’17 this week, Dynamite has announced the upcoming debut of Yoga Hosers: A Sundance Super Special, a new collaboration with filmmaker and comics writer Kevin Smith. The official prequel to Smith’s film Yoga Hosers, written by Smith with art by Jeff and Liam Quigley, was previously a Sundance Film Festival only exclusive, but will now be made widely available. The comic will arrive in shops on September 6th.

Smodcomics presents the official prequel to Yoga Hosers, a film which starred Johnny Depp, Harley Quinn Smith, and Lily-Rose Depp. The comic will continue answering questions like: “What is the secret “eh-rigin” of these convenience store clerks destined to face the monsters of Manitoba? How did fate bring two Colleens together to survive all the craziness that Winnipeg could throw at them? And can they harness Moksha, the ultimate goal of yoga, to destroy everything that threatens the things they love, eh?”

Writer/Director Kevin Smith says,

Nick and the Dynamite folks have made a home for me at their shop over the years. So when I thought about launching SModComics, he was my first call. I look forward to turning lots of material from my podcasts and movies into 4-color extensions of what we do in other media. And I’m happy to do it with Dynamite – the Jersey-based comics giant!

Yoga Hosers #1 will be solicited in the July 2017 Previews catalog and slated for release in September.
