‘Ice Cream Man’ Creator Launches New Anthology This January All About Clowns
by Olly MacNamee
W. Maxwell Prince, the brains behind Image Comics’ Ice Cream Man series is bringing a new title out simply called Haha. A new comic book anthology all about clowns:
“The new series is about professional clowns—it will share a common clown theme from issue to issue, but will showcase Prince’s characteristic one-shot storytelling. Haha promises a departure in tone and will break out beyond Horror to present a variety of stories across various different genres.
Haha peeks under the big top, over the rainbow, and even inside a balloon to tell a wide-ranging slew of stories about “funny” men and women, proving that some things are so sad you just have to laugh.”
A smorgasbord of comic book talents including Gabriel Walta (Vision), Roger Langridge (Thor), Vanesa R. Del Rey and many more. But, why clowns?
“I don’t like clowns, so I thought it’d be a good idea to write about them. What a gas, to get to partner with some of comics’ best to tell these ditties about a bunch of real jokers.”
Well, there’s your answer, straight from Prince’s own lips. Or keyboard.
Look out for the first issue due out Wednesday 13th January 2021 from Image Comics.
