Created, written and drawn by Marc Hansen, Ralph Snart Adventures was published from 1986-1993 by now defunct comic book company NOW Comics, and was the longest running comic in the entire NOW catalog, selling an average of 50,000 copies a month during that nine year period - over 1 million comic books total were circulated. It began Warner newsstand distribution in 1989 and received the Comics Code Authority seal of approval (no easy feat when the main character is a beer-guzzling nutjob). Today, new material is being created by Marc Hansen in print and as free comics online. New and old comics are for sale at his comic book store online. He's put out four trade paperbacks, and a new comic book series that began in July, 2008, with almost 275 pages of new material since 2003.
