The apocalypse is nigh! The world needs a Champion, and the only heir to a sacred mystical lineage is...a little old lady? Meet Lottie Thorn, reluctant savior of the world, and her also-elderly trainer Lady Peruvia Ashlington-Voss. They might not look it, but these women are prepared to take on any Big Bad that comes along. But first, perhaps a nice cup of tea?  Every AHOY comic also features extra prose stories and illustrations.

    Still finding its sea legs. Considering the company it keeps in the AHOY annals,Ash & Thornisn't a comedy book in the strictest sense; it's not funny in the ironic way that other AHOY titles have been funny. It doesn't have a mean streak or wants to take the piss out of some well-deserved societal target (like influencer culture inHashtag: Danger!or the pathetic wealth worship found inBillionaire Island). The humor that exists in this issue lies in the ridiculousness of Lottie's new-found situation"though eventhatisn't ridiculous, not really, at least not in the context of your typical comic book magical mystery tour. Though, lurking beyond its initial premise are dark forces looking to further disrupt Lottie's piano lessons"and McCourt's fascination with the Lovecraftian may reap sinister rewards. Woe betide those who would come between Lottie Thorn and her latest pie recipe. Read Full Review
