Hitting stores next week from Ahoy Comics, Peter Milligan and Michael Montenat’s Happy Hour (with colouring from Felipe Sobreiro and lettering by Rob Steen). Set in a world where unhappiness is illegal the first issue was reviewed here earlier this month at Broken Frontier with our Tom Murphy saying of it “Milligan’s sideways view of the world and Montenat’s technical skill create a strong hook for the six-issue series. As Jerry and Kim prepare to make their big break into an intriguing fictional world, the reader is willing them on to find the unhappy ending they deserve.”
A preview runs below after the solicitation blurb from the Ahoy site.
