A local medical expert and sheriff are summoned to investigate a strange sighting that sets the stage for Conor Stechschulte's debut graphic novella: a severed human head that still seems to be talking. We flash back to a pair of butchers who arrive at work one morning to find not only that there is no meat in their shop but also that they have forgotten completely how to do their job. As customers arrive, they are too fearful for their livelihood to admit their dilemma, leading to increasingly disastrous events. But what has caused their strange amnesia? This often hilarious, enigmatic, and uncomfortable book establishes Stechschulte as an exciting new talent.
"The Amateurs is great. Conor Stechschulte knocked it out of the park." – Sammy Harkham
"Stechschulte just has an uncanny knack for merging the humor of awkwardness with bloody, visceral violence." – Rob Clough
