Arriving in comic shops today (9/26), High Heaven is a five issue mini-series from Ahoy. It’s also pretty dark (as you can see below) and for mature readers. The lead feature by Tom Peyer and Greg Scott concerns what happens when a malcontent arrives in Heaven and finds that everyone hates a complainer. There’s a Hashtag: Danger back-up by Peyer and Chris Giarrusso, a Shannon Wheeler cartoon and finally Rick Geary illustrates “Festive Funtimes at the New World’s Fair,” a prose story by Grant Morrison.
Official PR follows and then a preview:
