British comic creators David Gaffney and Dan Berry are teaming up for a new comic self-described as "a dark comedy about relationships, memory, loneliness, and obsession."
Top Shelf announced the new original graphic novel in a press release today:
Valerie has a rich interior life. Serially unlucky in love, to feel better she imagines that her previous boyfriends are dead and that their bodies are kept downstairs in the cellar in a strange, mummified state. Every day she brings them upstairs and speaks with them about what went wrong.
What follows is a series of peculiar, funny, and sometimes disturbing short tales about inept lovers, weird obsessions, and socially malfunctioning men who repeatedly fail to build a relationship with poor Valerie.
Apart from Stanley. Stanley was special.
Could he be the one to save her?
The 120 page OGN retails for $19.95 and hits stores in January. You can preorder it now though, if you can't wait.
