About

THE THREE STOOGES are one of the most beloved American comedy acts of all time.  Larry, Moe, and Curly were innovators whose brand of silly slapstick has kept audiences young and old in stitches for nearly 100 years.  Even as their troupe changed to include Shemp, Joe, and Curly Joe, their timeless shenanigans kept us laughing and loving the Boys.  During the heyday of the Stooges they were immortalized in comics - capturing their fun-loving follies in another American art form - the comic book.  With your help, we want to continue this timeless tradition of honoring The Three Stooges with new comic book adventures that can speak directly to all of the fans their comedy has touched for generations.  We see The Three Stooges as sacred and every contributor - artist, writer, colorist, inker, and employee working on this project have the utmost reverence for the actors, the act, and the presentation.  We are truly honored and humbled to be able to contribute to the Stooges' legacy.

The Brand New Three Stooges Comic Books from American Mythology!

THE THREE STOOGES are back with brand new stories lovingly told by generations of artists and writers that grew up with The Boys!   American Mythology is a comic book publisher that is focused on creating the best new comics based on your favorite properties from film and television. We are launching our first humor title based on the the greatest comedy group in history! Our approach is simple - we find writers and artists that are passionate fans of the properties we are creating and let them make the best comics they can. FANS CREATING COMICS FOR FANS! We believe that the end result is a comic book that far exceeds the majority of licensed comics being created. If you want to read comics as good as the show you remember, please help us reach our goal of creating a new THE THREE STOOGES comic book series.

From all of us here at American Mythology, we want to wish a sincere THANK YOU to everyone helping us to get started. We take great pride in bringing THE THREE STOOGES back to comic books with new adventures. We are all fans of The Boys and are working very hard to make sure that these are the very best comics - made by fans for fans! We hold the Three Stooges as sacred and nothing but the excellence will be accepted for these comic books. And if you will take that leap of faith with us, we plan to deliver not only the very best new Three Stooges comics you've ever read, but a whole lot more in honor of these amazing showmen that gave us all so much!

THE THREE STOOGES is a fully licensed comic book series with C3 Entertainment, Inc. And as much as we love The Boys, getting the rights, creating the material, and printing the books is a very expensive proposition. We are dedicated to making these new comics the best and truest Three Stooges comics that have ever been published. With your help we can keep production going on the comics and share the wonderful brand of timeless Three Stooges humor with new generations of fans.

We will do our best to ship the physical comics out immediately upon publication. Goods that have to be signed or sketched after publication may take several additional weeks to get together. We believe that everything will be in your hands by June and maybe even a bit sooner. Shipping on time is important to us so we will do everything possible to make your experience with us a positive one.

Digital codes will be delivered via ComiXology.

American Mythology is gearing up to start announcing even more fantastic properties and comics coming up very soon. All of the Kickstarter supporters are helping to make our expansion and creation of new products a reality and we thank you for coming along with us for the ride! We appreciate your support whether it's via pledge or helping us to get the word out on social media - Twitter, Facebook, friends, and other social media makes all the difference in the world! You can visit us at www.americanmythology.net to see what we have coming up and to be a part of the program we are developing. Tickle your funny bone with us because the #BoysAreBack!
