Kid Lobotomy, Vol. 1 A Lad Insane


Formats & editions


Come as you are, leave as someone else. In the winding hallways of The Suites, anything can happen--whether you like it or not! Join Kid, the proprietor of this fine hotel, as he tries to hold on to his father's business--and his own sanity.

Kid, as he's affectionately referred to, is the youngest child of Big Daddy, an aging hotelier with more than his fair share of dark secrets tucked into the corners of the crown jewel of his empire: The Suites, where the guests are in danger of losing much more than their luggage. See, Kid has shed a few (okay, more than a few) brain cells in his day, which naturally makes him qualified to perform a lobotomy or two. And why let those brain bits go to waste when he can use them to help--or unwittingly harm--his patients?

Ultimately, Kid hopes to restore some of his sanity. But can he navigate his sister's devious plotting, vivid hallucinations, and his own crumbling mental state to uncover the truth about his cursed lineage and face what runs rampant throughout the torturous hotel hallways? Simply put, you've never read anything like this. You won't be able to look away.

Collects issues #1-6 of the ongoing series.
