As reported in Wizard Magazine #38 (October 1994), Silver Moon Comics, a subsidiary of Full Moon Studios [the film company?], which was announcing its launch at the July 1994 Chicago Comicon, named its first comic book series to be "The Drop Dead Comedians" by Harlan Ellison. It was to be plotted by Ellison with a script by Jan Strnad. It would be part of a three title launch for the publisher, with the first issue to come out in July 1995. They started an open search for an artist for the series at that convention with more planned for that summer's San Diego Comicon. Within a year it was announced that the publisher had folded, without releasing any planned books.
