It’s time to send the little ones to the comic book store, it seems. After the success of the 2013 graphic novel anthology, the stage show and podcast series The Thrilling Adventure Hour is returning to comics in 2015 with two all-new series from Image Comics based on long-running features from the show.

Both The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents… Sparks Nevada: Marshall on Mars and The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents… Beyond Belief will be written by the stage show’s creators and writers, Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, with art coming from industry veterans J. Bone (Sparks Nevada) and Phil Hester (Beyond Belief).

“We couldn't be more (ahem) thrilled to be producing books with Image, the home of so many of our favorite comics and creators,” Acker and Blacker said in a statement accompanying the announcement from Image. “We are tremendous fans of Image, both the caliber and quality of books they put out.”

The Thrilling Adventure Hour has been running as a stage show since 2005, initially at M Bar and later Largo in Los Angeles. A weekly podcast featuring segments from the monthly show launched in 2011, and a Kickstarter campaign in 2012 funded not only the original anthology graphic novel (later published by Archaia Press) but also a concert film, currently in post-production, and behind-the-scenes web series about the stage show.

The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents… Sparks Nevada: Marshall on Mars and The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents… Beyond Belief will both launch in February 2015.
