Wuvable Oaf is the first-ever collection of the acclaimed self-published comic book series by cartoonist Ed Luce. Oaf is a large, hirsute, scary-looking ex-wrestler who lives in San Francisco with his adorable kitties and listens to a lot of Morrissey. The book follows Oaf’s search for love in the big city, especially his pursuit of Eiffel, the lead singer of the black metal/queercore/ progressive disco grindcore band Ejaculoid. Luce weaves between the friends, associates, enemies, ex-lovers and pasts of both men into the story of their courtship. A romantic comedy at its core, Wuvable Oaf recalls elements of comics as diverse as Scott Pilgrim, Love and Rockets, and Archie, set against the background of San Francisco’s queer community and music scene. 

The special, What the Fuzz, edition, is sheathed in a flocked hair dust jacket (both front AND back!), featuring pink and green foil embellishments. Includes a handy slipcase, with a collage of all the covers from the original single issues.

"Ed Luce’s Wuvable Oaf is pretty dang adorable. ... Part of what makes it delightful (apart from Luce’s charming drawings) is the way it presents its subculture as the norm, a world in which straight people almost don’t exist. It’s nothing if not proud to be what it is." — Paste
