‘Three Stooges: Thru The Ages’ Celebrates Multiple Eras Of Knuckleheads

by James Ferguson

American Mythology Productions invites you to get in touch with your inner wise guy with The Three Stooges: Thru the Ages. The new comic kicks off the publisher’s five year anniversary. It’s a Stoogetacular celebration.

Nearly 100 years after their debut in Vaudeville, the Three Stooges are still starring in new stories. This book includes three brand-new Stooge stories, each designed to celebrate a specific period in their careers. The Three Stoogese: Thru the Ages features a cover by Eric Shanower and interviews with three Stooge family relatives who all help to keep the comedy flame lit. The great-grandsons of Larry Fine, Kurt and Don Lamond and Curly Howard’s grandson, Brad “Curly G” Server share some unique memories and provide an insightful and touching recount of the Three Stooges when they were not in front of the camera.

For Doody & Humanity,” written by S.A. Check and illustrated by Jorge Pacheco stars the original lineup of Moe, Larry, and Shemp trying to protect a rare bird egg from gorilla garbed poachers. “Rubes in the Ring” is written by Todd Clark and illustrated by Diego Tapie, following Moe, Larry, and Curly as they work together to delivery a knockout punch. Finally, “Stooges on Set,” written by Jordan Gershowitz and illustrated by Brendon and Brian Fraim has Moe and Larry teaming up with Curly Joe for a wild ride through a working moving studio.

“If we stuffed any more Stoogedness into this comic, it would explode,” said book writer, S.A. Check. “AM came to us and said we want to celebrate our five-year anniversary with a Three Stooges book that truly encompasses what we’ve done with The Boys over the last few years.  I said, ‘Hold my porcupine! We’re on it!’  We threw everything we had at this issue.  We have Moe!  We have Larry!  WE HAVE SHEMP! Curly! Curly Joe!  You name it – it’s in there for an all-out Stooge-fest of epic proportions!  The three stories we ended up using for the book are just great fun snippets of different points in The Boy’s epic careers.  I think fans will really enjoy the little trip we take across the Stooge universe and each story brings something unique with the lineup of wonderful artists who contributed.  We also have an interview with some Stooge family members that revealed some things I think even die-hard fans didn’t know about The Boys!  And, as if that isn’t enough, we have a fun look back at all the comics AM has published to get us to this point!  This is a cover-to-cover blast, filled with all things Stooges!  Don’t miss out on it!”
