AHOY Comics announces that they are starting off 2022 with time-traveling comic series G.I.L.T. This new series from writer Alisa Kwitney (Rogue: Untouched, Mystik U) and artist Mauricet (Star Wars: Adventures, Dastardly & Muttley) is a romantic dramedy about two women living in New York City whose lives become intertwined when they accidentally go through a time portal that takes them back to 1973. The two don't remember that they had met back in 1973, and their pasts are tied to the fate of their future.
“G.I.L.T. provides an escape from our present-day anxieties and allows us to revisit those halcyon days of Nixon, polyester leisure suits and unlimited indoor smoking,” said Kwitney. “It’s also the perfect comic for everyone who’s ever been seduced by a self-help guru with a really luxurious mustache.”
“A dramedy about people with feelings?” said Mauricet. “No spandex superdudes beating the sh!t out of each other? The 1930s, 1970s and 2010s colliding with a touch of MAD Magazine parody? All of this written by my favorite writer and published by AHOY? Where do I sign?”
“Although there are no saintly saviors, no feisty felines, and no weird recipes, G.I.L.T. is instantly recognizable as one of our own,” said AHOY Comics Editor-in-Chief, Tom Peyer. “It’s witty, surprising, and features some of the best art of Mauricet’s career. And like all of the best AHOY series, G.I.L.T. is very, very funny in a way that refuses to cheer you up at all.”
G.I.L.T. issue 1 will debut on April 6, 2022.
