Writing team Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (Deadpool, Death Be Damned) return to The Thrilling Adventure Hour in this new series based on the wildly popular Hollywood stage show and podcast. Frank and Sadie Doyle are the toast of the upper crust. Headliners on the society pages. And they see ghosts. Follow the Doyles on a night when having a drink (or ten) with friends goes horribly, and perhaps predictably, wrong at a haunted house.

    Read The Thrilling Adventure Hour. Even if you didnt listen to the original podcast, this comic is a fantastic parody of 1930s-1940s radio dramas and an extremely entertaining read. I cant wait for part two of Frank and Sadies tale in the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 18, 2018

    There wasn't a lot of action in this issue and there didn't need to be. The dialogue is what drives this story and the art is great at complementing that with clean lines and details. I really enjoyed how the characters were rendered. Great look for a great book. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Jul 20, 2018

    By bringing their acclaimed radio play/podcast to the comic medium, Bens Acker and Blacker have put together this week's most enjoyable comic issue. From the sing-songy prologue to the tongue-in-cheek banter between characters, the writing nothing short of fantastic. Ditto for the artwork by M.J. Erickson and Brittany Peer. Read Full Review

    There are more than enough supernatural friends and foes out in the world for Frank and Sady to face, and this creative team is more than skilled enough to keep their adventures going for a very long time. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Sophie Buijsen Jul 18, 2018

    In this issue we embark on a brand new adventure with Frank and Sadie, with their friends Donna and David Henderson. The story manages to combine a classic 'whodunnit' story as the Doyles often encounter by someone knocking on their door looking for help with the supernatural. Mix this with a mysterious noir detective, and you have all the ingredients for a classic Beyond Belief. And it's all held together by Frank and Sadie's love for one another, and their joint love for a drink. Here's to the Doyles' new home, may they live there happily ever after! *Clink* Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Alyssa Jackson Jul 18, 2018

    While I found this comic incredibly fun and satisfying as a fan of the source material, will it translate to a new audience? I think it can. Acker and Blacker are such sharp writers, and have set up an engaging story, that I believe it can bring in new fans. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Tee LaFrance Todd Jul 30, 2018

    An enjoyable read, this probably was much more significant to those readers that are already fans of The Thrilling Adventure Hour. However, its still a decent first issue and deserve a look through. Read Full Review
