Dark Horse Promotes Reefer Madness for 4/20 Day

Posted by April 18, 2018 Comment

4/20 is fast-approaching and you’ve got nothing to read! Hold on. Don’t freak out, maaan! There’s still time to head to your local comic book shop and pick up a copy of Dark Horse’s collected Reefer Madness trade paperback, in stores now. The company sent out a press release hyping the release from Craig Yoe.

Just in time to celebrate the international stoner holiday 4/20 Dark Horse has teamed up with multiple Eisner-Award-winning editor and designer Craig Yoe to bring readers this newest collection of wacky, wild, and culturally relevant comics about the comically misinformed “dangers” of marijuana with Reefer Madness in an affordable paperback edition! And with the likes of Jeff Sessions lurking like a cartoon villain ready to snatch away recreational cannabis, Reefer Madness is as relevant now as it was during the baby boom!

From the 1930’s to the 1950’s and beyond, hysteria surrounded marijuana and its effects on the youth of America. Reefer Madness collects hilariously hysterical short stories such as “Satan’s Cigarettes”; “Hopped-Up Killer”; “Teenage Dope Slaves”; “We Can Stop The Enemies of Youth”; “My Scandalous Affair!”; “Dope Menace”; “Holiday of Horror!”, “Hooked!” and many more!

“This is one of the most fun books I’ve ever put together. Some of the writers and artists that created these comics must have been smoking something to concoct these ludicrous and loony tales of youth gone bad!” said Yoe. “The comics will serve up lots of lusty laughs for those who partake of contraband ‘giggle-smoke.’ Others attempting to snuff out the wicked marijuana cigarettes that they are sure to unleash unbridled passions will see these comics as moral tales of dire warning!”

For an eye-popping look at Reefer Madness, check out the dope trailer on YouTube!

Reefer Madness TPB is available now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop. Priced at only $19.99, you can use the savings for your next trip to the dispensary in any of the ten states where recreational marijuana is now legal.

Here’s that trailer they spoke of:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
