IDW and Top Shelf are giving James Kochalcka’s SUPERF*CKERS a five-issue comic book miniseries, SUPERF*CKERS FOREVER which will launch in August. In addition each issue of the upcoming miniseries will feature a variant cover by an acclaimed indie artist and a 4-page back-up story by another such idiosyncratic artist.
SUPERF*CKERS is foul-mouthed, filthy-minded, and completely oblivious. The young heroes featured in the comic do everything BUT fight crime. Instead they get high, haze the new kids, play video games, scheme to be team leader, and design new costumes.
SUPERF*CKERS was created by writer/artist/musician Kochalka in 2005. In addition to their original mini-series (now collected as a graphic novel) and the digital comic SUPERF*CKERS Save Christmas, the characters have also starred in an animated series on YouTube’s Cartoon Hangover. To date, the YouTube series has garnered over 1.4 million plays.
“In an era of ongoing over-the-top comic-book events, Superf*ckers Forever out-events all others,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer. “Or it will at least out-crazy them, likely out-curse them and maybe even out-shock all the others, too. And even better than Kochalka unleashed here, the series also has contributions from additional amazing talents, all of whom are only too happy to get silly within the confines of the world James has created.”
Superf*ckers Forever #1 will feature a variant cover from Invincible artist Ryan Ottley and a back-up story from Jake Lawrence. Subsequent issues will see covers and stories by the likes of Laura Knetzger, Box Brown, Rachel Lindsay, Julian Glander, Daryl Ayo, Debora Cheyenne Cruchon, Levin Jihanian, and Michael Fiffe.
