AHOY Comics Announces Sneldon: Comedy is Dying, a new comic book series written by Paul Constant and drawn by Fred Harper, with colours by Lee Loughridge and lettering by Rob Steen.
“Melville Snelson was killing it. He was the talk of the stand up circuit. He had a TV sitcom in development! He even had a date with Janeane Garofalo (although, to be fair, she denies it). But that was the 1990’s — and that was a long time ago
This 5-issue series chronicles the misadventures of a washed-up comedian whose career peaked when Dawson’s Creek was still on the air. Bitter because he missed his big break in the ‘90s, Snelson is struggling with the idea that he’s a victim of cancel culture or, even worse, forgotten altogether.”
Featuring a variant cover by Peter Bagge it’s not out until Wednesday August 4th, but already has quite the fan following:
“I love this book. I know this character. Wait — AM I this character? Damn you Fred Harper!” – Patton Oswalt
Sneldon: Comedy is Dying joins the recently announced werewolf punk-rock horror series, Black Myth, as part of the next wave of new releases coming from Ahoy Comics. As ever, when we hear more, we’ll let you know.
