If you’ve missed the crazy adventures of Larry, Moe, and Curly, you only have two more months before The Three Stooges comic returns to your LCS.

three-stooges-coverAmerican Mythology Productions will launch the 32-page comic in April with a cover price of $3.99. Best of all the characters in the comic will be based on actual likenesses of the characters, rather than the cartoony likenesses we’ve seen in other media over the las t75 years.

The Three Stooges have a long history in comic book format. “How can you get more iconic than The Three Stooges? Literally generations of children have grown in adulthood with profoundly fond memories of Larry, Moe, Curly, Shemp, and The Boys. The staying power of their humor is exactly why we wanted them at American Mythology. We are determined to create new, original stories in the true spirit of these entertainment legends,” said Michael Bornstein, American Mythology’s Publisher. “We’re very honored to bring The Boys back to comics!”

“Comic books are the vanguard of creativity, and The Three Stooges have a long history in comics. We’re very pleased to have them associated with American Mythology Productions,” said Ani Khachoian, Executive Vice-President of Licensing, Merchandising and Distribution for C3. “Their passion for The Boys is equal to their passion for great comics, and we think it’s an excellent match.”

S.L. Gallant, Bill Galvan, Greg Larocque, Mark Wheatley, Brendon & Brian Fraim, Andrew Pepoy, S.A. Check, J.C. Vaughn, and Mark L. Haynes, and others have been tapped to bring these adventures to life.

While there are many who are excited about this news, I couldn’t get my eight year old to sit through one Stooges short, without growing bored. The Stooges were big influences on many of our lives, but have they been out of the spotlight for too long to have an impact with modern audiences?
