  • Issue #1A
    Puffed (2003) 1A
    Published Jul 2003 by Image.

    Written by John Layman. Art and Cover by Dave Crosland. Think you've had bad days? Aaron Owens has it worse. Much worse. He's got the lousiest job in the world, and is about to have the longest night of his life. In fact, take your worst job, your worst enemy, your most pathetic unrequited love and add to it the most dangerous predicaments you've ever been in. Then stuff it inside a sweltering, cramped, ridiculous-looking dragon costume. One that you can't get out of. That's right. A dragon costume. That's PUFFED. In this issue: Piss off the wrong psychopathic amusement park janitor and what do you get? You get: Trapped in a dragon costume, beat up, dumped in the 'hood, hounded by weirdos, hunted by killahs, and that's just the beginning of PUFFED, a tale of suspense, drama, desperation, murder, mistaken identity, sexual longing, loss, revenge, regret, impotence...even incontinence! Written by John Layman, ex-editor of THE AUTHORITY and PLANETARY, with eye-popping art by comics newcomer Dave Crosland (whose illustrations have been seen in Spin magazine and Tastes Like Chicken) and featuring variant covers by some of the biggest superstars in comics, PUFFED is the hilariously off-kilter antidote to the typical guy-in-a-costume comic. Well, guy-in-a-spandex-costume, anyway. And don't let the cuddly dragon suit fool you. PUFFED is full of bad people, using bad language and doing bad things. 32 pages, B&W. Mature Readers. Cover price $2.95.
