He’s Not Just A Bear, He’s Wuvable Oaf!

1 2 3 4 5 Next »

Oaf, a gay, cat-obsessed, Morrissey-loving, hairy giant, lumbers through life unencumbered by any worry about how much space he takes up. He’s got a crush on  rocker Eiffel, who plays in the “disco grindcore” band Eja©uloid, and his every step propels this alpha bear through a series of weird adventures, all brilliantly captured in Ed Luce’s Wuvable Oaf.

A visually and narratively witty breath of fresh (and very odd) air in the world of gay comics, Wuvable Oaf is the product of writer/artist Luce’s out-of-left-field imagination and make-everything-big-and-round drawing style. The third issue, out now, finds Oaf on his first date with Eiffel (at the restaurant Rage Against The Cuisine) and Oaf’s cat, Santino, involved in a brutal Oz-style beatdown with a gang of mean felines.

Nobody’s night ends well.

Super-fans may want the limited, signed and numbered special edition (limited to 200 copies) which features a gory hoof-print variant cover, a set of three Smell-O-Drama scratch n’ sniff cards and the new EJA©ULOID 7″ single, “Sleep Apnea.” (The track comes on a clear vinyl picture disc  and features music from members of hardcore bands Limp Wrist and Talk Is Poison.)

Give a wide berth: There’s lots more Wuvable Oaf  on the very next page!

Want to get Luce to sign your copy of Wuvable Oaf #3? He’ll be at Floating World Comics in Portland, OR, from 6–10pm today and at The Escapist Comics in Berkeley, CA, on August 12th from 7-9pm.
