Introducing... SNOTGIRL!

We don't write about a lot of comics here at Idle Hands...but not for lack of wanting. There are just so many hours in the day and we lack that special individual that is hardcore into comics and on top of all the latest announcements. That is the ONLY reason you will find for me missing a title called Snotgirl. Seriously. Wouldn't you think i'd be all over that??!! You'd be right. We'll fix this..right..meow.

Image Comics is pleased to announce the highly-anticipated new ongoing series SNOTGIRL by New York Times bestselling writer Bryan Lee O’Malley (Scott Pilgrim) and featuring dazzling artwork by newcomer Leslie Hung (now going on it's third print...we are discussed.) First announced at Image Expo (in May) and teased in the inaugural issue of Image+ Magazine, SNOTGIRL will launch this July (which is now the past).  In SNOTGIRL #1, readers will meet Lottie Person. Lottie’s a gorgeous, fun-loving social media star with a seemingly perfect life—but deep-down is she really just a gross, allergy-ridden mess? Enter a world of snot, blood, and tears in this new ongoing series.

"Lottie Person is an extreme example of someone whose online persona is a calculated performance. She's gorgeous, she has great hair and clothes, she has the perfect apartment in downtown Los Angeles," said O'Malley of the main character in a recent interview in Image+ Magazine. "By all appearances she's flawless, but she's an introverted weirdo on the inside." Hung incorporated current brands and fashion elements into the story and said of her art strategy: "It was important to pay attention to brands, but also to the people who wear those brands in day-to-day life... All the characters kind of have their own thing going on, but as events unfold, I hope people are able to see when things start to shift, and I'm definitely letting the situations dictate the details."

SNOTGIRL from Image Comics is in stores NOWWW. Go bug your local comic shop for a copy.
