Be Ready to Laugh with Project: Cryptid the Latest Anthology from AHOY Comics

PROJECT: CRYPTID will be published monthly by AHOY Comics and available in stores on September 6, 2023


AHOY Comics has had quite the run in the last five years, with tales involving Jesus’ friendship with a superhero, a kick-ass eldritch horror fighting grandma, or a cavalcade of space cats, and their readers have been along for the ride. This fall, AHOY is jam packing a new anthology of the truly weird and wild. Project: Cryptid will bring together unimaginably amusing and laughably unreal stories of cryptids from around the globe.

Collecting comics and short stories from voices new and old, Project: Cryptid is a marathon across the world from the depths of Loch Ness to the freezing peaks of the Himalayan Mountains and even the humble backroads of Ohio exploring each of these amazing locations’ lore. Asking if Nessie, the Yeti, and of course the Loveland Frogman are even real. And if they are, the most critical piece of information: are they funny?

The anthology will feature comics and stories from writers Mark Russell, Paul Cornell, Alisa Kwitney, Alex Segura, Bryce Ingman, Paul Constant, Liana Kangas, Henry Barajas, AA Rubin, Joe Illidge, Melissa Olsen, Zander Cannon, Gene Ha, Hanna Bahedry, Matt Ligeti, Stuart Moore and more, as well as art by Jordi Perez, Madeline Seeley, PJ Holden, Mike Spicer, Mauricet, Steven Bryant, Peter Krause, Richard Pace, Jamal Igle, Ted and Ro, Lew Stringer, Lane Lloyd, and more.

Check out some quotes from the writers below. And be sure to check out Project: Cryptid at your local comic book stands this September!

“Everybody needs something to believe in, especially these days,” said editor Sarah Litt. “We here at AHOY believe that anything is possible — and possibly, everything is possible. From mothmen to chupacabras to Mongolian deathworms, the creatures in PROJECT: CRYPTID will test the limits of your faith in reality. You’ll believe something is out there, although maybe not the truth.”

“Combining horror and critters is the peanut butter cup of comic deliciousness,” said writer Alisa Kwitney. “Also, cryptids exist. I had a Bigfoot encounter in Davie, Florida, when I was staying overnight at the Sunny Daze Nudist Camp back in ’76. Mauricet, my artistic partner in crime, claims to have kept a small mandrake in his drawer for years but finally had to throw it out when it grew large and its screams could be overheard in the neighboring apartment.”
