Blank Slate and Rotopol proudly present the latest comic by incomparable German cartoon genius, Thomas Wellmann.
Taking place in a fully developed fantasy world, readers are invited to meet Pimo Huerte, a struggling novelist-slash dashing swordsman and his best friend, the potion-making chef Rex Iman. Featuring two stories told with Wellmann’s astonishing full-colour art and energetic humour, our heroes’ adventures see them at odds with weird and wonderful foes such as an evil necromancer who will stop at nothing to become a master painter and an unstoppable archlibrarian, determined to take back Pimo’s overdue books by any means necessary.
Adventure Time aficionados will know Wellmann as the co-writer and storyboard artist on two of the show’s episodes and are sure to love seeing him work his unbridled magic in this solo English language debut.
Pimo & Rex is the first title to be co-published by the UK’s Blank Slate Books and Rotopol Press, Germany’s foremost alternative comics and illustration publisher. This partnership means the English-language version of the book was released on the same day as the German edition.
Good news for fans of this rollicking read – Thomas is hard at work on a second book! We’ll update you on its progress via the BSB news blog, and Thomas posts updates on his Tumblr too.
