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 Rory Phillips- and a retailer incentive cover by comics superstar Frank Quitely (Jupiter's Legacy- We3) Bullet points: • Grab your cockroach!
