Kevin Smith will bring his brand of comedy and sensibilities to Dark Horse Comics this fall with his very own imprint called Kevin Smith’s Secret Stash Press, named after his long-standing New Jersey comic shop.
Kevin told The Hollywood Reporter that “2022 marks the 25th anniversary of my comic book store, Jay & Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. And after a quarter-century of selling comics, the Secret Stash is going to MAKE our own comics!”
Smith’s first title will be Masquerade, an eight-issue series about a fledgling vigilante, followed by the ongoing anthology Quick Stops, which will include characters from some of his most famous films as Clerks, Mallrats and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.
Dark Horse president Mike Richardson says that “I’ve been a fan of Kevin’s films for years. The fact is, we have much in common. We’ve both worked in our own comic shops, worked in the film business, but most of all, have a passionate love for the comics medium. It only makes sense for us to finally team up, and I am extremely proud to announce his exciting new line of comic books and graphic novels here at Dark Horse. Kevin has a brilliant, creative mind, and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for all of us.”
