Limbo Lounge, an original graphic novel from IDW’s Yoe Books imprint, drops in a couple weeks (2/6) and concerns two “flower-headed freaks,” an elderly nun and a ” knife-wielding little pageant-princess-gone-bad.”
Official PR follows:
Yoe Books, in conjunction with IDW Publishing and Top Shelf, is overjoyed to announce a worthy title to its celebrated catalogue—LIMBO LOUNGE by acclaimed illustrator Dave Calver.
Spearheaded by multiple Eisner Award-winner, Craig Yoe, who guarantees this title will live up to their collections of stupendous comic art geniuses of the past, Limbo Lounge is already getting recognition across the comic book community, racking up positive review attention.
DoomRocket opines, “Limbo Lounge mixes equal parts Tex Avery and Hieronymus Bosch. Vibrant, expressionistic madness.”
An original graphic novel where newly dead people in Limbo await their fate at a bar while surrounded by bored interlopers from hell. This trippy, surreal, full-color adventure brings us from the hot, swirling sands of hell to the colorfully bizarre Limbo Lounge. Meet flower-headed freaks, Bud and Lou. Root for their new friend, a spry, elderly nun, Sister Eunice, as she works remotely in Limbo continuing to rid earth of despicable dirt bags. And, by all means, avoid the knife-wielding little pageant-princess-gone-bad as she plots for anything she can get at anyone’s expense.
“It’s a thrill to make such an auspicious Yoe Books debut with the mind-blowing Dave Calver,” said Yoe. “Our motto when we started was ‘Making Comics History’. That was carefully worded because we have always planned on publishing, in addition to classic cool comics, original graphic novels that would ’make history’!”
“Craig has been an invaluable partner over the years and we’re always excited to see what he produces next,” said IDW Publisher and President, Greg Goldstein. “Spotlighting some of the most eye-popping comic book artists is what Craig does best, and Limbo Lounge is no exception.”
