Image Comics’ ‘The Secret History Of The War On Weed’ One-Shot Announced
by Olly MacNamee
Creators Brian Posehn, Gerry Duggan and Scott Koblish reform from their time on Deadpool to reveal a new one-shot comic from Image Comics, The Secret History of the War on Weed one-shot will hit shelves this April.
“The year is 1985. The First Lady decides to crush Northern California cannabis farmers and deploys the biggest tool in the armed forces: Scotch McTiernan (collectible first of many hilarious appearances). “If it weeds…we can kill it.” Scotch puts his boots on the ground in Humboldt and does what he does best—but what happens when he gets high for the first time?”
So, what else to expect other than the failed War on Drugs of the Reagan administration? Here’s Posehn with more:
“I am always game to stir up some comic book silliness with Koblish and Duggan. With our 4/20 adventures of Scotch McTiernan, we might have outdone ourselves. Eighties references, ultra violence, and high jokes per page rate is our wheel house. We leveled our wheel house this time. Check it out!”
“My most hilarious and messed-up comics have been collaborations with Scott and Brian, and this is our funniest and most screwed up comic yet. If you like ’80s action comedy, alternate histories of the United States, and are a marijuana-curious, then this comic is for you.”
Plus, buy this book knowing a portion of the proceeds from this comic will be donated to organizations dedicated to helping casualties of America’s immoral drug war.
“I’m proud to be getting together again with two of the craziest minds in comics and comedy! If you’ve enjoyed the work we’ve done together you’ll know that we pack every page with humor, action and manic adventure—and this comic doesn’t disappoint! I can’t wait for everyone to check out this book and take a hefty swig of Scotch!” – Scott Koblish
The Secret History of the War on Weed one-shot is out on Wednesday, April 20th from Image Comics.
