Bringing Back The 90’s: Preview Planet Of The Nerds #1 From Ahoy Comics

by Olly MacNamee

Ahoy Comics continue with the release of their second wave of new titles with the soon-to-be published sci-fi (sci-fi-fun?) series Planet of the Nerds #1 by (W) Paul Constant (A) Alan Robinson, Randy Elliott  and (CA) David Nakayama. Its out next week, but we wanted to give you an early sneak peek here and now. A nostalgic nod to the 80’s it’s described as “Back to the Future meets Idiocracy“. Sounds good to me, as a fan of both those films.

See what you think as we bring you a preview of the first issue.

Three high school jocks in the 1980s are accidentally frozen by an experimental cryogenics device, only to be revived in the computer-driven, superhero movie-loving world of 2019–an era ruled by nerds! PLUS! A backup series explores the characters’ origins. EXTRA! Prose and pictures by the finest talents in and out of comics.

If you want more, do check out our exclusive interview with writer Paul Constant here.

Planet of the Nerds #1 is out Wednesday April 17th, 2019.
