Unlikely Heroes Studios has tapped writer Paul Hanley, and writer/artist Matt Frank for Miss Medusa’s Monstrous Menagerie, a new Kickstarter comic book that is scheduled to deliver in November 2021.
“I love Unlikely Heroes and I’m hyped to be doing a second series with them”, says Paul Hanley, writer, background artist, and colorist for the first issue. “A book like this, four years in the making, thousands of hours of research about creatures and carnies…we couldn’t go to any ol’ rubes on this one. UHS is with it and for it- a Sixteen Wagon this circus would be lost without.”
It’s 1963, and having a carnival of 666 monsters ain’t the draw it used to be. Miss Medusa’s Monstrous Menagerie is one of the last two Mythic shows left in the U.S., trucking from one backwater town to the next. It’s dirty work, and sometimes you barely make the nut, but America’s still the land of plenty (of rubes). For this season at least, Miss Medusa’s hiring, and you can still run away and join the circus!
The interesting thing about this Kickstarter is it is still ongoing, closes in November, and for the Lot Louse level, will deliver a PDF in November 2021. For all other pledges, the physical comic and rewards arrive in December 2021.
