There’s a gap in satire comics and Source Point Press intend to fill it, flashing back to the days of early MAD and Marvel’s Not Brand Echh! Something you can really have fun with while still being intelligent!
The first issue of Spaced Out is available for pre-order now and will be in shops March 31. For our opening salvo, Lou Mougin and Brian Dunphy offer up Enemy Ass (the funny-animal ace of World War 1), Prisonerd (a takeoff on the famous cult TV show of the 60’s), and Sgt. Crock (a satirical take on guess who?). It’s time for satire that doesn’t try to convert you politically (frankly, we wouldn’t even know how!) but whonks you entertainingly!
“I was raised in a house full of smart humor, musical diversity, storytelling and dad jokes so understandably MAD Magazine felt like it was published specifically for me. Devastated by the disappearance of MAD and wanting to fill that void, I was delighted when Lou Mougin came along with a batch of funny little stories that felt very much like what I had read growing up,” says Dunphy.
Spaced Out uses 60s popular culture as a launching point and springs wildly in every direction.
“I think we put together a little book that can be appreciated by casual comic book fans of all ages; fans of satire, pop culture aficionados, people of different backgrounds and political leanings can all hopefully find something to laugh about in these stories,” says Dunphy.
Source Point Press is a division of Ox Eye Media, publishing books, comics, and graphic novels. Spaced Out is available to pre-order now and will be released Wednesday, Mar 31, 2021.
