Mark Russell's revisionist take on Hanna-Barbera's Snagglepuss is returning as a miniseries in January 2018 titled Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles. Announced with The Hollywood Reporter, the six-issue title will be drawn by Mike Feenan and spins out of an earlier back-up story by Russell in Suicide Squad/Banana Splits.
"Snagglepuss in this story is having to live a double life as a gay playwright living in New York, and he's closeted," said Russell. "But he has values and integrity as an artist, and he's trying to stand up for people who otherwise would be shoved under the stairs in this time of great national paranoia in the Red Scare mentality. It's very easy in a time of national catastrophe — of perceived national catastrophe — to throw people under the sink and forget about them, and Snagglepuss is unwilling to let them do that to people he knows and loves. He's willing to stand up for people when the rest of the country is not."
Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles is scheduled to debut in January 2018.
