It’s Hero Happy Hour time again! I am very pleased to announce that fan-favorite super hero humor title is once again available. With this round, co-creator Chris Fason and I are serving up two new collections in an all-new digest format — Hero Happy Hour Omnibus 01 and Hero Happy Hour Super Special Flashback. This is in anticipation for all-new Hero Happy Hour tales that we are preparing to serve up in the coming year.
The Omnibus 01 contains the main feature story from the first five issues (including those issues that were originally called Super Hero Happy Hour). The original Volume 1 tpb that was published in 2003 contained the first four issues. The Super Special Flashback contains all of the stories featured in the Super Special 2004 as well as selected back-up stories from the original issues including “Part-Time” from Gail Simone and Cal Slayton, as well as the previously unpublished “The Broken Record” featuring Possum At Large by Chad Lambert and Joe Gravel. Solicitation copy and ordering info below.
Did you miss any (or, dare we say, all) of the first five issues of Hero Happy Hour? Well, unlike missing out at “last call,” you’ve got the chance to partake in all five of the original rounds with the super hero gang from the Hideout Bar & Grill. This special digest-sized collection contains the “super” feature stories from the first five fan-favorite issues.
Imagine pulling up a stool to the bar and sipping a frosty pint of your favorite beverage as you listen in on the conversations of the “regulars” that frequent the neighborhood tavern. But, this establishment is unlike any other bar. The Hideout Bar & Grill caters to the super heroes of First City. For the regular heroes it is “a place where everyone knows your name” — secret identity or not. Black & White – Digest Size – 148 Pages – $11.99. Order direct from Indy Planet.
A bunch of comic book creators walk into a bar… The Hideout Bar & Grill. Join Tom Beland (True Story, Swear To God), Scott Morse (Soulwind, Southpaw), Todd Nauck (Wildguard, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man), Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, Batman: Gotham County Line), Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Wormwood Gentleman Corpse), and many other comic book writers and artists as they belly up to the bar to offer their take on the patrons of every super hero’s favorite hangout.
This collection contains all of the original stories from the Hero Happy Hour Super Special 2004, as well as an additional healthy pour of bonus material including an all new never before published story featuring “Possum At Large.” Black & White – Digest Size – 72 Pages – $7.49. Order direct from Indy Planet.
These two digest-sized editions would make great stocking stuffers, but you better order quick in time for the holiday. Thanks.
