Two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist for Editorial Cartoonist Matt Bors and acclaimed illustrator Fred Harper are collaborating on a brand new THE TOXIC AVENGER story that will be published in a 5-issue limited series from AHOY Comics. TOXIC AVENGER #1 will land in stores on October 9, 2024. The Toxic Avenger first appeared in the 1984 cult classic film about a mutated weakling mopping up a corporate mess, directed by Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz and starring Mitchell Cohen. 

In THE TOXIC AVENGER, teenager Melvin Junko helps run his parent's junkyard in Tromaville, a small town in New Jersey where nothing much ever happens — until an ill-timed train derailment of toxic waste transforms Melvin into a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength: the Toxic Avenger! Under a media blackout imposed by Biohazard Solutions (BS) and their PR-spewing Chairwoman Lindsay Flick, Melvin emerges as a hero fighting against BS and the mutated threats that keep popping up around Tromaville. Eventually Melvin uncovers a vast conspiracy more far-reaching than he could have ever imagined — but he knows if everyone is simply made aware of the crisis, they’ll act to stop it. Right?
