(W) Peter Milligan (A/CA) Tess Fowler. Kafka meets King Lear by way of Young Frankenstein in KID LOBOTOMY* a dark* demented* monthly satire that follows a dysfunctional family of hoteliers. Will sibling rivalry* seduction* and shapeshifting eventually lead to sanity or salvation? Big Daddy is a rich hotelier who* in a cracked echo of King Lear* appoints his youngest descendant to manage The Suites* a peculiar hotel located behind the Black Crown Pub. Affectionately known as Kid* his good looks and swagger can't hide a rough childhood of strange therapies and brain operations that have awakened inner demons and psychodramas. This of course makes him eminently qualified to perform lobotomies. A failed rockstar/successful madman gets one last change to prove his worth and regain his sanity by turning the hotel that was once his childhood sanctuary into a lucrative business* despite a host of obstacles including his own sister who would love nothing more than to see him fail miserably. Kid Lobotomy is co-created/written by Peter Milligan (Shade* the Changing Man* Brittania* Hellblazer) and illustrated by Tess Fowler (Rat Queens) with "A" covers by Fowler* a "B" cover by Frank Quitely* and a retailer incentive cover by comics superstar Frank Quitely (Jupiter's Legacy* We3) Bullet points: * Grab your cockroach!
