Based on the wildly popular Hollywood stage show and podcast created by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, The Thrilling Adventure Hour is coming to your local comic book shop.
Created in 2005 by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, The Thrilling Adventure Hour is both a popular Hollywood stage show and podcast that pays homage to the timeless Hollywood radio serials. These original and exciting stories crossing a myriad of genres have been 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.
One of the most popular parts of the show is Beyond Belief. Beyond Belief is the story of Frank and Sadie Doyle are the toast of the upper crust – headliners on the society pages…and they see ghosts. The Thrilling Adventure Hour #1 tells a new tale from the world of the Doyle’s. When one night of having a drink (or ten) with friends goes horribly, and perhaps predictably, wrong at a haunted house, the Doyle’s find themselves in a situation beyond belief.
“Acker and Blacker captured lightning in a bottle with The Thrilling Adventure Hour and we’re so excited to bring that creative spark to comics,” said Cameron Chittock, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Thanks to M.J. Erickson’s incredible line work, Frank and Sadie Doyle are back to their old tricks and I can’t wait for fans to see the twists and turns this haunted house has in store for them.”
THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR #1 features a main cover by Jonathan Case (Green River Killer), along with variant covers by Natacha Bustos (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur) and the award-winning The Little Friends of Printmaking.
Print copies of THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR #1 and THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR: A SPIRITED ROMANCE DISCOVER NOW EDITION will be available for sale in July 2018 exclusively at local comic book shops (usecomicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one).
