Pimples are actually portals through which creatures from another dimension derive voyeuristic pleasure by spying on the lives of human teenagers. This is the story of an unnamed refugee from this alien world and Scott, a horny and morose teenage boy languishing in 1970’s America.
It is an inter-dimensional epic of pimples and porn, action, adolescence, and acne. You’ll never look in the mirror the same way again after reading WHATZIT.
WHATZIT, the first book in a sci-fi/horror-comedy series from Heavy Metal’s VIRUS imprint, hits the direct market for the first time this week. WHATZIT: Book One is written and illustrated by Eisner-winning artist Gideon Kendall (Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost, MegaGhost). Check out this darkly hilarious book, featured in Forbes’ list of the best graphic novels of 2021.
