For fans of the podcast Thrilling Adventure Hour, Frank and Sadie Doyle have been a bit part of their listening joy. The two “spirited” mediums both enjoy removing evil and enjoying a martini in the process. This collection from BOOM! collects issues #0-4 of the Beyond Belief comics in an episode called A Spirited Romance.
The comics, written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker themselves, are illustrated by the talents of Phil Hester. Together, they weave a tale of mystery and the paranormal, but first they start with how Frank and Sadie met. The comics then follow the purchase of a home by Donna Donner, who immediately starts to experience some ghost trouble. With some help from the Doyles, they discover that the paranormal in this situation goes much farther back than their bar cart will allow.
If you’ve listened to The Thrilling Adventure Hour, chances are you’re going to read this comic hearing Paul F. Thomkins and Paget Brewster in your head. It is enjoyable to say the least and perfect for a good Halloween read.
The Thrilling Adventure Hour: Beyond Belief- A Spirited Romance is now available in the softcover collection from BOOM!.
