AHOY Comics—the independent publisher making a name for itself with clever and irreverent titles like SECOND COMING, THE WRONG EARTH, and EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF BLOOD—will be distributed in bookstores by Simon & Schuster as of March 2021. The publisher also announced its fall publication schedule which will include trade paperback editions of several of its comics. Diamond will continue to distribute AHOY’s titles into comic shops.
“We’re pleased as punch to be partnering with Simon & Schuster with a deal that will allow us to expand our distribution in such a significant way,” said AHOY Publisher Hart Seely. “We can’t wait to foist our stable of oddball titles onto the unsuspecting masses and introduce a whole new audience of folks to Dragonfly and Dragonflyman, and the staggeringly drunken Edgar Allan Poe.”
AHOY also announced its fall publication schedule which will also include trade paperback versions of several of its popular series from earlier in the year: HAPPY HOUR, THE WRONG EARTH: NIGHT AND DAY, and EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF BLOOD.
“As our president has said, there’s finally light at the end of the tunnel,” said Editor-in-Chief Tom Peyer. “I’m of course referring to the blindingly bright light cast by our stellar line of fall titles, which I know the entire nation is anticipating with bated (and masked) breath.”
