Grant Morrison’s Joe the Barbarian
From the mind of Eisner Award-winning writer Grant Morrison and the hand of acclaimed artist Sean Murphy comes JOE THE BARBARIAN. It’s an epic story of high adventure, low blood sugar and the makings of a hero. Joe Manson is no hero. He’s just an 11-year-old kid with a pet rat, a bad case of diabetes and one heck of an imagination. So… is the unbelievable adventure that unfolds all in his mind? Or does he really need to complete a mighty quest?? You’ll have to read it to find out. It was one of our absolute favorite series last year. And the trade comes out this Wednesday!
JOE THE BARBARIAN TP
Collecting the acclaimed 8-issue miniseries! Joe is an imaginative eleven-year-old boy. He can’t fit in at school. He’s the victim of bullies. His dad died overseas in the Iraq war. He also suffers from Type 1 diabetes. One fateful day, his condition causes him to believe he has entered a vivid fantasy world in which he is the lost savior – a fantastic land based on the layout and contents of his home. His desperate attempts to make it out of his bedroom transform into an incredible, epic adventure through a bizarre landscape of submarine pirate dwarves, evil Hell Hounds, Lightning Lords and besieged castles. But is his quest really just an insulin deprived delirium – from which he can die if he doesn’t take his meds – or something much bigger?
