“Kid Lobotomy” is the sounding gun for Black Crown, Shelly Bond’s new imprint at IDW. The first issue impressed our own John Schaidler, and we are thrilled to bring you an exclusive preview of the second issue, which drops on November 8th. The series, by Peter Milligan and Tess Fowler, was described in the initial solicitation as “Kafka meets King Lear by way of Young Frankenstein, while dealing with music, shapeshifting, memory, and more. It’s an inventive and gripping book, and we can’t wait to see where it’s going.
Written by Peter Milligan
