AdHouse Announces The Bad-Ventures Of Bobo Backslack To Round Out Spring 2014 Schedule


Chris Pitzer of AdHouse Books announced early today his company's acquisition of The Bad-Ventures Of Bobo Backslack for publication in May 2014. The Jon Chadurjian volume runs 184 pages, and will be published at an eight inches by eight inches size and be sold for $14.95 USD.

Chadurjian is probably best known for the Leo Geo books he does for MacMillan/Roaring Brook Press, also under the name "Jon Chad." He is an educator affiliated with the Center For Cartoon Studies. "I fell in love with The Bad-ventures of Bobo Backslack by Jon Chadurjian because of the amount of things that can wrong to the pool old sad sack," AdHouse publisher Chris Pitzer wrote CR. "But I appreciated the smart comics-making even more... Layers of meaning with each panel, word balloon, or vomit usage."

The book will be AdHouse's final project for the Spring/Summer 2014, a season heavy with new to AdHouse talents including Noah Van Sciver and Katie Skelly. Pitzer: "2014 is shaping up to be quite the 'new' year for us. Lots of new cartoonists, new work, and new challenges. I'm excited for them all."

AdHouse is exhibiting at today's Comics Art Brooklyn, where he will no doubt be happy to answer any and all questions about the forthcoming work and publishing season.
