In late April, we spoke with AHOY! Comics’ Tom Peyer about the new series from the publisher, and here is what he had to say about “Hashtag Danger:”
[You can expect] some wonderfully expressive Chris Giarrusso art and a pointlessly mean and profane story by me, intended for mature readers. “Hashtag: Danger” is a trio of experts in their fields: a pulp-comics scientist, a cage fighter, and a civic booster. They chase extraterrestrials, monsters, lost civilizations and the like, but mostly they just hang around the headquarters being rude and disrespectful to each other. There’s a backup series by Paul Constant and Fred Harper called Snelson, about the bleak life of a formerly famous comedian. And some beautifully pulpy covers by Richard Williams.
Today, we can exclusively share this preview of “Hashtag Danger” #2, which hits stores tomorrow, June 5th.
Written by Tom Peyer, Paul Constant, Matt Beuchele, Carol Lay, and Robert Jeschonek
