C3 Entertainment Inc. has granted a license to American Mythology Productions to create new comic books featuring The Three Stooges. The first series of five to six issues will each contain two or three original short stories. While the comics are slated for publication/distribution in March 2016, the company plans to release limited edition lithographs and prints of the artwork created for the comics this year.
“Comics are enjoying a huge pop culture renaissance and we’re are excited to have American Mythology Productions bring the fans all new adventures with The Boys,” says Ani Khachoian, Executive Vice President of Licensing, Merchandising and Distribution for C3. “These comics and lithographs will become instant collectors items that fans will love.”
“The Three Stooges are the embodiment of the spirit of American Mythology and we are determined to create new and original stories that pay homage to the legacy of a true entertainment legend,” said Publisher Michael Bornstein.
Senior Media Editor S.A. Check added “American Mythology is thrilled to be working with C3
Entertainment. It’s a dream come true for us and our growing bullpen of artists, writers, and creators, all of whom were influenced by the Stooges and are eager to give something back to these timeless geniuses who gave us so much.”
