"...there's a similar passion expressed by Luce in his honest intermingling of pop- and counter-culture interests, making Wuvable Oaf worth the consideration of metalheads queer and straight alike." - Paste Magazine
"This is the second entry in Fantagraphics’s reprints of the Oaf comics, with the book now featuring color. Wrestling, metal, and queer culture all conflate into one hairy mess of awesome." -Multiversity
Hot on the heels of 2015’s wildly popular Wuvable Oaf debut comes this fullcolor sequel! Still the same wuvable Bay Area bear searching for love in the big city, Blood & Metal collects a number of Oaf short stories focusing on his involvement in the local metal and wrestling scenes. Luce celebrates his love of all things wrestling/metal/queercore with his love for his cast of characters to create an immersive environment recalling Scott Pilgrim, Love and Rockets, and Archie.
