IDW Wants Retailers To Rip Off Gold Foil Covers On Kid Lobotomy #1 After Issuing Recall

A replacement issue will be sent in November.

Source: Bleeding Cool

The first issue of Kid Lobotomy, the debut issue from IDW's imprint Black Crown, came with a standard cover by series artist Tess Fowler, a variant by Frank Quitely, and a 1-in-10 gold foil cover. That gold cover has caused a problem, forcing IDW to issue a recall.

Due to a misapplication of the foil treatment, the copies of KID LOBOTOMY #1 10 COPY INCENTIVE (AUG170375) you received for on-sale today were misprinted.

You will be receiving corrected replacement copies in a future shipment (likely with product on sale November 1). IDW is asking that you return these misprinted copies as strip-cover returns.

IDW and Diamond regret any inconvenience. If you have additional questions regarding this advisory, please contact your Diamond Retailer Services Representative. Thank you.


Solicit info for the first issue is below.

(W) Peter Milligan (A/CA) Tess Fowler
Kafka meets King Lear by way of Young Frankenstein in KID LOBOTOMY, a dark, demented, monthly satire that follows a dysfunctional family of hoteliers. Will sibling rivalry, seduction, and shapeshifting eventually lead to sanity or salvation?
Big Daddy is a rich hotelier who, in a cracked echo of King Lear, appoints his youngest descendant to manage The Suites, a peculiar hotel located behind the Black Crown Pub. Affectionately known as Kid, his good looks and swagger can't hide a rough childhood of strange therapies and brain operations that have awakened inner demons and psychodramas. This of course makes him eminently qualified to perform lobotomies. A failed rockstar/successful madman gets one last change to prove his worth-and regain his sanity-by turning the hotel that was once his childhood sanctuary into a lucrative business, despite a host of obstacles-including his own sister-who would love nothing more than to see him fail miserably.
Kid Lobotomy is co-created/written by Peter Milligan (Shade, the Changing Man, Brittania, Hellblazer) and illustrated by Tess Fowler (Rat Queens) with "A" covers by Fowler, a "B" cover by Frank Quitely, and a retailer incentive cover by comics superstar Frank Quitely (Jupiter's Legacy, We3)
