Today The Beat has a new exclusive preview from AfterShock Comics, and it’s Knock ‘Em Dead #3 by the team of Eliot Rahal, Mattia Monaco, and Taylor Esposito. This latest issue is due out this coming Wednesday, Feb. 10.
The book has been unique through its first two issues, offering a story that sits at an interesting intersection of stand-up comedy, striving for success, and death, the last of which is played out through ghosts and other paranormal activity. The next issue is due out this coming Wednesday, and comedy fans will be delighted to find that it involves the inclusion of one of the medium’s most revered and influential figures. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves — you’ll have to buy the book for that.
In the meantime, you can find the preview pages and new interior artwork from Knock ‘Em Dead #3 below, following the jump with the full solicit info…enjoy!

Pryor Brice has just killed an entire room full of people — because he just won a stand-up comedy competition!
Pryor should be on top of the world after his win, but he’s not. The spirit of his dead friend that’s trapped inside him has grown more powerful. Now Pryor is acting…differently. How do you exorcise a malignant spirit for bargain prices on such short notice? Well, all we can say is…thank God for the internet.
