New Yorker cartoonist and multiple Eisner Award-winner Shannon Wheeler hasn’t been too shy to take on POTUS – his Sh*t My President Says, an illustrated guide to you-know-who’s tweets came out from Top Shelf last year. But he’s got more to say, and he’s moving to Image for MEMOIRS OF A VERY STABLE GENIUS, due in July from Image/Shadowline Comics.
Despite the title, MEMOIRS OF A VERY STABLE GENIUS is a personal book, including autobiographical short stories and gags and a 40-page full-color section.
“Books are like children. It’s with pride I send this one out into the world to fend for itself, have its heart broken, take a job that will slowly erode all self-respect,” said Wheeler. “That said, this is the best book I’ve ever done.”
MEMOIRS OF A VERY STABLE GENIUS TP (Diamond code: MAY180071, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0966-1) hits comic book stores Wednesday, July 11th and bookstores Tuesday, July 17th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, June 4th and it can be preordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, Indigo, and Books-A-Million.
