JOHN K PRESENTS SPUMCO COMIC BOOK HCMedia Release -- IDW and Yoe Books are pleased to announce the publication of JOHN K PRESENTS SPUMCO COMIC BOOK, a raucous collection of early comics by the illustrious John Kricfalusi and the explosively entertaining animation studio he founded, Spumco!

Long out of print and rendered hideously expensive, the insanity of these comics by the creators of Ren & Stimpy and Sody Pop are being collected into a beautiful, deluxe, full color hardback for the first time! That's right, folks, 160 pages of metaphorically unglued, off-the-wall, kinda-filthy-but-that's-ok-by-us comics goodness featuring the adventures of beloved characters like George Liquor and Jimmy! This collection even has a never-before-published story! This will be the first time Jimmy the Drooling Numbskull in nutty the Friendly Dump has ever been printed!

Lined with the works of Spumco greats like Jim Smith, Vincent Waller, Mike Fontanelli, Shane Glines, Rich Pursel, and more, this book is a must-own for animation aficionados and comics fans of all stripes!

JOHN K PRESENTS SPUMCO COMIC BOOK HC: (FC, $34.99, 160 pgs.) in stores 2/27/13. Diamond order code: DEC12 0494.
