Image Comics announced that bestselling creator/writer W. Maxwell Prince (Ice Cream Man) will team with some of the industry’s best artists—starting with Vanesa R. Del Rey (Redlands)—for a new anthology comic series called Haha this January from Image Comics.
“I don’t like clowns, so I thought it’d be a good idea to write about them,” said Prince. “What a gas, to get to partner with some of comics’ best to tell these ditties about a bunch of real jokers.”
The new series is about professional clowns—it will share a common clown theme from issue to issue, but will showcase Prince’s characteristic one-shot storytelling. Haha promises a departure in tone and will break out beyond Horror to present a variety of stories across various different genres.
The distinctive new series Haha will also feature the work of various different interior artists, with issues drawn by Gabriel Walta (Vision), Roger Langridge (Thor), and more, in addition to Del Rey.
Haha peeks under the big top, over the rainbow, and even inside a balloon to tell a wide-ranging slew of stories about “funny” men and women, proving that some things are so sad you just have to laugh.
Haha #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, January 13. Haha #1 will also be available for purchase across digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
