Oaf ist ein großer, haariger, schwuler Ex-Wrestler, der in San Francisco mit seinen Katzen lebt und eindeutig zu viel Morrissey hört. Begleitet Oaf bei seiner Suche nach der großen Liebe – in Gestalt von Eiffel, dem Sänger der Black Metal/Queercore/progressive Disco/Grindcore Band Ejaculoid. Natürlich dürfen Freunde und Feinde, Ex-Liebhaber und Verflossene beider Männer in dieser Geschichte nicht fehlen. Ebensowenig wie Nacktbilder mit Katzen, Dämonen und Bartwettbewerbe. Mit einprägsamen Zeichnungen und vor dem Hintergrund der queeren Community und Musikszene San Franciscos erzählt Ed Luce eine ebenso ungewöhnliche wie herzerwärmende romantische Komödie.

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.
