Yes, the creator-owned comic book that rocked the 1980s, and was even turned into a TV show by Hanna-Barbera for CBS is coming back – with all-new stories, as well as reprints of the original run.

Published between 1985 and 1991, the marvellous film noir-inspired Fish Police centred on law and crime in a fictional underwater metropolis with the protagonist, Inspector Gill, trying to solve various crimes, often Mafia-related, while avoiding being seduced by the buxom Angel Jones. Begun at Steve’s own Fishwrap Productions, it was picked up by Comico and then Apple Press.

Steve went on to created Livingston Mountain (Malibu/Adventure, 1991) and wrote the spin-off series Fish Schticks (Apple, 1991–1992), drawn by Steve Hauk. He also worked as an inker at Marvel, notably on Blade the Vampire Hunter (1994–1995) and Star Trek: Early Voyages (1998), and on Ghost (1998–2000) for Dark Horse, and other titles.

“We are talking about All New Fish Police Comics by the original creator, Steve Moncuse,” publisher Drew Ford enthuses. “And better still, the story will pick up around where it left off almost 30 years ago.

To tease the project, IT’S ALIVE! has new cover art by Steve Moncuse, coloured by the brilliant Ronda Pattison… (TMNT, The Maxx, Usagi Yojimbo).

Keep your eyes peeled for more announcements on the IT’S ALIVE social media, including the upcoming launch of a crowd-funding campaign to support the return of Fish Police.
