WonderCon 2017 and IDW Black Crown Spoilers for Kid Lobotomy follows.
An interesting series with a creepy cool vibe from an all-star creative team that hits stands in October 2017 just in time for Halloween!
Few comic editors are associated with a particular aesthetic or level of quality. Shelly Bond, former vice president and executive editor at DC’s mature reader imprint, Vertigo, is a figure whose name resonates with discerning readers. Her work in that role helped shape a line of comics that defined a particular moment in the medium’s history: artistically bold, thematically daring and immensely readable. Announced earlier this month, Bond has returned to the medium as the head of a new imprint at IDW, Black Crown…
…The series reunites Bond with writer Peter Milligan, with whom she previously worked on a host of Vertigo titles, and teams him with artist Tess Fowler. Paste chatted with Bond about the genesis of the project and how it fits into her larger plans at Black Crown.
IDW Description of Kid Lobotomy:
Kid, as he’s affectionately referred to, is the youngest descendent of a strange, overbearing hotelier. While he sports rock star good looks, Kid Lobotomy has more in common with Hannibal than Morrissey in his prime. Unsuspecting hotel guests who check in to “The Suites” are in danger of losing more than their luggage. Living up to his name, Kid has shed a few brain cells in his day, which naturally makes him qualified to perform a lobotomy or two. And why let those brain bits go to waste when he can use them to help—or unwittingly harm—his subjects? Ultimately, Kid hopes to restore some of his sanity. But can he survive the truth about his cursed lineage and face what runs rampant throughout the torturous hotel hallways? Simply put, you’ve never read anything like this.
