    AHOY Comics have been putting out digest-style magazines that all have a humorous bent to them since launching in 2018. No book has a more obvious comedic bent than “Planet of the Nerds,” a series of which we are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the second issue. The issue drops on May 15th, and if you’re unfamiliar with the book, here’s what writer Paul Constant had to say about the series:

    “The first issue of PLANET OF THE NERDS saw our three 1980s jocks get thawed out in 2019, and in the second issue they run buck wild. When they stumble into a comic book convention, our jocks discover that the future has gone geeky, and they respond by doing what jocks do best: punching nerds in the face. This issue has it all—action, cosplay, and a whole lot of tear gas!” – Paul Constant
