Get ready for the Superest, Weirdest, Heroest profiles in kitschy courage — courtesy of the fevered minds at Yoe Books and IDW!
That’s right: The first volume of Super Weird Heroes, a collection of the most outlandish, motley, questionable superhero stories is coming your way 11/16 from Craig Yoe and Clizia Gussoni’s coterie of fascinatingly febrile functionaries at Yoe Books (an imprint of the irrepressible IDW).
That’s 320 pages of wacky, unintentionally campy superheroing, you cool cats and devoted daddy-o’s! Each character gets a historical profile and complete story. What more could anyone ask?!
Now we love weird and we love the Yoes and we dig the IDW, so we’ve serialized the book with 13 DAYS OF SUPER WEIRD HEROES.
That’s right, every day for 13 days, we featured the likes of Zippo, Nature Boy, the Hand and the Deacon — straight from the book! Genuine superheroes who have been genuinely (if unjustly) forgotten!
Not exactly the Justice League, but hey, what can you do?
