Combining the trend of adult coloring books and grotesque humor, Dark Horse Books is set to release Bait: Off-Color Stories for You to Color, a new adult coloring book from Chuck Palahniuk. Bait also doubles as a new short story collection, with illustrations from Lee Bermejo, Joelle Jones, Duncan Fegredo, and more. The short stories keep Palahniuk's unique sense of humor covering topics such as:
- A passenger on the Titanic who finds a surgical solution to the obstacle of "women and children first"
- A Hollywood star, whose fading brand faces a viral (and scatological) internet campaign
- An animal psychic who coaxes a statement from a fish that witnessed a political assassination
- Increasingly terrible birthday gifts that place a girl at the center of an extinction-level event
Bait: Off-Color Stories for You to Color releases Oct 26.
