A sharp super-hero spoof from a stellar team that includes co-creators of Irredeemable and Second Coming! In Gravel City, the super-villain Emperor King has devised not only a sadistic death trap for his arch-enemy, The Accelerator, but also the means to penetrate the top secrets of his other arch-enemy, The Chandelier! Important new comic book universe begins here, we say sarcastically!

    AHOY Comics' ‘My Bad' #1 introduces a brave new world of daft new superheroes and an even dafter supervillain. A Silver Age parody written out of love and a deep understanding of the genre, its tropes and its conventions. Read Full Review

    My Bad #1 is a great start. Each story delivers on the humor all while introducing a series of new characters to readers. An interesting venture for Ahoy, the Important New Superhero Universe is certainly one to keep an eye on. Read Full Review

    All in all, 'My Bad' is a fun break from "serious" comics and puts the funny in funny books. It skewers comic book tropes with a wink and a nod. It's full of cool features fans of comics will recognize and enjoy. "Important new comic book universe," indeed.  Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 3, 2021

    My Bad #1 delivers a bit of fun as it takes a few light-hearted jabs at the comic book medium. While it didn't land for me, comedy is the most subjective of art forms. So, if you are looking for a giggle or two at the expense of cape-wearing heroes and maniacal villains, you might want to give it a try. Read Full Review

    This one is an anthology in which Mark Russell leads off with the first story and a couple of "ad" pages, while the others stories and bonus material are written by Bryce Ingman (with the exception of an ad-lib by Scott Morse).

    The gags and characters were extremely fun and I think this anthology fo more
