AHOY Comics are really doing their best to differentiate themselves from the pack by both releasing books with some non-comics backmatter, but also by embracing some ideas that you don’t see everyday. Anthologies and Bronze Age nostalgia are two ideas that certainly have their hold in comics, but aren’t exactly as ubiquitous as variant covers or crossovers. But “Bronze Age Boogie” brings those two ideas together into a book that you didn’t think you needed, but once you read, will likely be added to your pull list. We’re thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the second issue, which drops on May 8.
Written by Stuart Moore and Tyrone Finch
