First and foremost, let’s be perfectly clear about a couple things…
HASHTAG: DANGER Is Not For Children!
We Repeat: The Acclaimed Graphic Novel Written by Tom Peyer and Illustrated by Chris Giarrusso, The Renowned Young Readers Artist, Is Not Intended For Children
UNLESS they’re bad and very curious
Now that you have been thoroughly warned and your curiosity dangerously piqued, I am pleased to welcome you to the world of HASHTAG: DANGER, the critically acclaimed comic by Tom Peyer, AHOY Comics’ Editor-in-Chief and writer, and Chris Giarrusso, the renowned young readers artist, who have teamed up to create a fantastically fun and twisted romp. Surly brainiac Einstein Armstrong, bumbling heavyweight Sugar Rae Huang, and hapless leader Desiree Danger muddle their way through endless life-threatening and comical adventures- many of which could have been avoided, if only they hadn’t made that Craigslist ad inviting vicious villains to attack them…HASHTAG:DANGER: DANGER ON DINOSAUR ISLAND collects all the HASHTAG: DANGER stories from issues #1-5 of the comic book series, plus the HASHTAG: DANGER back-features from AHOY titles HIGH HEAVEN and CAPTAIN GINGER.
“Chris Giarrusso is one of the top artists of comics for young readers,” said Tom Peyer. “But his drawings, while simple on the surface, observe character and genre with such subtlety, such accuracy, they cried out for a deeper, more adult work of fiction. Unfortunately, all I could think of was this dumb story where cute characters swear a lot and kill dinosaurs.”
“We here at AHOY Comics want readers everywhere to know that HASHTAG: DANGER: DANGER ON DINOSAUR ISLAND is a sharp edged satire, full of cursing and adult humor,” said AHOY Comics Publisher Hart Seely. “We urge our loyal readers to read the book in the privacy of their own home. If they insist on reading the book in a public place, we urge them to conceal the book in a brown paper bag and keep it hidden at all times from impressionable eyes.”
Charming, off-the-wall, and just the right amount of twisted, HASHTAG: DANGER will have you laughing out loud with each and every yeti kidnapping, capitalist diatribe, and prank that goes way, way, way too far…
For the last 20 years, people have been suggesting I draw comics featuring adult characters,” said Chris Giarrusso. “Now that it’s happened, those people feel completely betrayed.”
Check out the advance praise for HASHTAG: DANGER:
“There’s a new book out that I am wild about, it’s sort of Challengers of The Unknown meets Archie meets Grant Morrison. I love it. It’s called HASHTAG: DANGER, it’s by Tom Peyer and Chris Giarrusso forAHOY Comics. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!”—Gail Simone
“A modern take on a Fantastic Four-esque team of scientific explorers … as they boldly explore supernatural mysteries, strange worlds, and ancient civilizations, and find out if the dangers lurking beneath all those things will kill them before they manage to kill one another.”—io9
“HASHTAG: DANGER! is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and, as we all know, sliced bread is pretty great—vastly superior to unsliced bread which has to be pulled apart with your fist like an animal.”— Erik Larsen (Savage Dragon)
AHOY Comics will publish HASHTAG: DANGER: DANGER ON DINOSAUR ISLAND in comic shops and bookstores on November 20th.
