Laurel & Hardy Meet The Three Stooges!
What happens when two of the greatest comedy teams of all time are brought together for a once in a lifetime event? Comic book publisher American Mythology answers that question with a head-slapping, eye-poking, bowler hat-wearing, bone-crunching, piano moving, pratfall fun fest, the likes of which have never appeared before in comics for an event literally 100 years in the making.
The comedy team of Laurel & Hardy is regarded by many as two of the founding fathers of comedy, paving the road for generations of entertainers to follow. They are loved the world over, and their popularity has stood the test of time with an active and growing fan base. From their famous bowler hats to their signature tune, “The Cuckoo Song”, the duo has warmed the hearts of generations with the hundreds of bits and routines made famous throughout the 1920’s and on into the 1940’s with classics like “The Music Box”, “Sons of the Desert”, and “Babes in Toyland”, as well as the recent 2018 theatrical release of “Stan & Ollie”.
The Three Stooges are an American tradition that set the bar in terms of physical comedy and whose influence continues to permeate all levels of pop culture to this day. The Stooges have remained a staple in our culture since they rolled out their first two-reel classic over 85 years ago. They actively entertained millions of fans worldwide with their own signature brand of silliness for over forty years, and their legacy has only grown exponentially with a near-constant television presence airing such wonderful classic films like “A Plumbing We Will Go”, “Punch Drunks”, and “Three Smart Saps”.
Now, American Mythology Comics, the same company who brought The Three Stooges back into the comics’ spotlight in 2016, and again with a new Laurel & Hardy comic in 2019, is doing what many fans have considered impossible by bringing these two comedic forces of nature together for a special one issue crossover extravaganza coming February 26th to your local comic book shop.
