Pubo TPB (2003 Dark Horse) comic books
1st printing. Collects Pubo (2002) #1-3. Story and art by LELAND PURVIS. Leland Purvis, the Xeric Award-winning creator of Vox (which Sequential Tart called "the standout new entry onto the [small press] scene this year"), takes a more lighthearted approach with a hilarious story about a bizarre misfit. The victim of an unusual-and one can only assume pointless-medical experiment, Pubo finds himself at the mercy of the animals and few humans in the deep dark woods of the Pacific Northwest. And he'd probably be just fine, if he weren't such a grumpy little bastard. But his natural, primal inclinations combine with his big-city, gruff demeanor, and it might turn out that there's nowhere for a little guy with a giant head to fit in. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 96 pages, B&W. Cover price $9.95.
