A peek inside the wacky comics industry:
Pencil Head 1 is Ted McKeever semi-autobiographical take on the whacked-out world of the comic book industry. Journey along as we witness protagonist Poodwaddle trials and tribulations of working, and sustaining, his place in the absurd world of comics, where what happens behind the scenes is far more twisted, and bizarrely hilarious, than anything on the printed page. Other great picks next week: Kieron Gillen concludes his mini-series with Phonogram The Immaterial Girl 6, with art and cover by Jamie McKelvie! The Victorian-era robot sci-fi adventure that everyone talking about continues with Steam Man 4, by Mark Alan Miller and Joe R. Lansdale, with art and cover by Piotr Kowalski!
