Ready for a whacked out take on the comic book industry? Image Comics has announced Pencil Head by Ted McKeever coming our way in January.

In PENCIL HEAD McKeever explores the whacked-out world of the comic book industry. Readers journey along as witness to protagonist Poodwaddle’s trials and tribulations of working—and sustaining—his place in the absurd world of comics, where what happens behind the scenes is far more twisted, and bizarrely hilarious, than anything on the printed page.

“As the old saying goes, write what you know. And after working in the comic book field for the last 30 years… Well, that’s exactly what I’m doing in Pencil Head,” said McKeever in a press release from Image Comics. “I’ve combined personal industry experiences, along with a more bizarrely esoteric subplot, to create a autobiographical stew of behind-the-scenes happenings, mixed with my usual brand of oddities, and weirdness. Enjoy.”
