Championing Controversial Content

One of Ahoy Comics’ most notable moments came when it stepped in to publish the limited series “Second Coming” by Mark Russell and Richard Pace. Initially slated for publication by DC Comics, the series faced controversy due to its portrayal of Jesus Christ in a superhero universe. Following creative differences with DC Comics, “Second Coming” found a home at Ahoy, where it was met with critical acclaim for its thought-provoking themes and inventive storytelling.
