Announcement: Thomas Wellmann’s PIMO & REX

Tags: , ,

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be co-publishing the amazing Thomas Wellmann’s upcoming comic Pimo & Rex with our friends at Rotopol. We’ve been huge fans of Thomas (and Rotopol) for a long time, and so it’s great to be helping bring his brilliant work into English.

But – aside from working with great people – why co-publish? By teaming up with Rotopol, it means that we can unleash German and English versions of the book upon the world at the very same time! This October, Anglophones will be able to read the comic in English at the very same time as German-speaking readers are first getting their hands on it. Pretty neat, huh?

If you follow Thomas on Tumblr, you’ll already know the book will contain two stories about Pimo, a struggling novelist and Rex, a successful chef. Stay tuned to the Blank Slate and Rotopol Twitter accounts for more info as we approach release. Until then, here are a couple of pages to tide you over:


Ain’t they special?
