THE STEAKS ARE HIGH IN KEVIN SMITH’S “QUICK STOPS ll”
The secret origin of the Askewniverse’s golden icon!
MILWAUKIE, Ore., (August 24, 2023)—Dark Horse Comics and director/actor/producer/podcaster/author Kevin Smith (Clerks I, II and III, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob: Reboot, etc.) are over to the moon to return to the Askewniverse with the black and white anthology series, Quick Stops ll! Joining Smith is Ahmed Raafat as series artist and Andrew Thomas as letterer. Don’t have a cow though, issue #1 will feature covers by Nate Gonzalez, Chogrin (Quick Stops), and Raafat (Secret Stash exclusive variant).
Unlike the first series of Quick Stops, Quick Stops ll will be a four-issue series, spanning one storyline in which readers learn the udder truth about an American icon when a young podcaster tries to milk Mooby creator Nancy Goldruff for the bovine’s beginnings, only to meat a cow tale so shocking, it turns her brain to hamburger!
“In Quick Stops I, we visited four small stories in the Askewniverse,” said Smith. “So for Quick Stops II, we did four issues of a massive story that spans a few decades to tell the tale of Mooby, the Golden Calf. And where that salacious story takes us is gritty, graphic and grotesquely grown up. I cannot wait to introduce you to Nancy Goldruff – who warranted merely a mention in 1999’s DOGMA, but gets a full-fledged secret origin story in Quick Stops II!”
Quick Stops ll #1 (of 4), mooves into comic shops on November 22, 2023. It is now available to pre-order for $3.99 at your local comic shop.
