For years, the DC Comics publishing lineup has been clogged with s**t. That all changes this October as DC has finally called the plumber. The Soul Plumber, that is.
What is Soul Plumber, you ask? It's a new series written by the hosts of The Last Podcast on the Left, with art by John McCrea. A press release on DC Comics' website explains, if you're willing to take the plunge:
Finally, exorcism made easy in DC HORROR PRESENTS: SOUL PLUMBER.
From Marcus Parks, Henry Zebrowski and Ben Kissel, the hosts of THE LAST PODCAST ON THE LEFT, comes a new six-issue series that dives deep into the sewers of the human soul—also, there are demons.
Edgar Wiggins, a disgraced former seminary student, is desperate to find a way to answer what he believes is his higher calling. He thinks he's found it in a seminar hosted in a hotel conference room by the Soul Plumbers, who have a machine that could be the secret to delivering souls from Satan. Edgar's too broke to buy in, but that's not enough to stop this true devotee: he steals the blueprints and builds a pirated version with what components he can afford on his gas station attendant salary. Then he goes after a demon, misses… and ends up pulling out something much worse.
Hey, that's pretty much how Dan Didio came up with the idea for the New 52 while snaking his toilet! Soul Plumber #1 is set to hit comic book stores on October 5th. Check out more information and some covers for the first issue below.
