DARK HORSE WARNS AGAINST THE DANGERS
OF SATAN’S CIGARETTES IN “REEFER MADNESS”
Degradation! Crime! Madness!
Just in time to celebrate the international stoner holiday 4/20, Dark Horse Comics has teamed up with multiple Eisner-Award-winning editor and designer Craig Yoe to bring readers this newest collection of wacky, wild, and culturally relevant comics about the comically misinformed “dangers” of marijuana with Reefer Madness in an affordable paperback edition! And with the likes of Jeff Sessions lurking like a cartoon villain ready to snatch away recreational cannabis, Reefer Madness is as relevant now as it was during the baby boom!
From the 1930’s to the 1950’s and beyond, hysteria surrounded marijuana and its effects on the youth of America. Reefer Madness collects hilariously hysterical short stories such as “Satan’s Cigarettes”; “Hopped-Up Killer”; “Teenage Dope Slaves”; “We Can Stop The Enemies of Youth”; “My Scandalous Affair!”; “Dope Menace”; “Holiday of Horror!”, “Hooked!” and many more!
“This is one of the most fun books I’ve ever put together. Some of the writers and artists that created these comics must have been smoking something to concoct these ludicrous and loony tales of youth gone bad!” said Yoe. “The comics will serve up lots of lusty laughs for those who partake of contraband ‘giggle-smoke.’ Others attempting to snuff out the wicked marijuana cigarettes that they are sure to unleash unbridled passions will see these comics as moral tales of dire warning!”
Condemnation for Reefer Madness:
“Comic books are the marijuana of the nursery; the bane of the bassinette; the horror of the house;
the curse of the kids; and a threat to the future”—John Mason Brown, author and critic, 1948
