by Hannah Means Shannon

Boom! Studios has announced several projects focusing on The Thrilling Adventure Hour, a property which was previously published firstly by Boom, and later by Image Comics.

Firstly, they will be publishing The Thrilling Adventure Hour Vol. 1: Discover Now Edition which will be comic shop exclusive and arrive in July 2018. The story content will be the “Beyond Belief” limited series written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker and drawn by Phil Hester, who will also create the cover.  A standard trade version of the same content will also later appear in October 2018.

Another collection will follow, containing the complete The Thrilling Adventure: Sparks Nevada limited series.

Lastly, fans can also look forward to all-new original The Thrilling Adventure Hour monthly comics stories in 2018 from Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, and more talent yet to be announced.

Ben Acker & Ben Blacker say:

BOOM! Studios has been a wonderful home for our work over the years, from the original Thrilling Adventure Hour graphic novel to our recent mini-series, Death Be Damned. From the very beginning, everyone over at BOOM! Studios has been supportive and enthusiastic about us and the Thrilling Adventure Hour. So it’s only natural that BOOM! Studios become the new home for Thrilling Adventure Hour comics. They’re doing a stunning Discover Now edition of the existing series thus far, and we’re so excited to work with BOOM! Studios on future Thrilling stories.

The Thrilling Adventure Hour was originally created as a stage show and Nerdist podcast in 2005 by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker steeped in the tradition of radio serials and embracing many genres. These tales were originally performed by actors and comedians such as Paul F. Tompkins, Paget Brewster, Busy Philipps, Nathan Fillion, Linda Cardellini, Patton Oswalt, Neil Patrick Harris, and more.
