The Li'l Depressed Boy's Beginnings

Listen up Poppers we're got something that you don't want to miss.  Before THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY found a home at Image Comics, S. Steven Struble built the character’s story online as a popular web comic. Now Image Comics is collecting his early strips and short stories that have never seen print in THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY, VOL. 0 TP this December.

“I’ll always have a soft spot for these early strips. I cut my teeth on them,” said Struble. “They were a fun experiment that helped form both me as a writer and LDB as a character. On top of that, I got to work with some of my favorite artists.”

THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY, VOL. 0 TP collects the work of Sam Keith, Jim Valentino, Jim Mahfood, Beaucoup Pop's very own Justin Stewart and more in early THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY short stories, all awash in appropriate shades of blue.  It’s all bundled up in a beautiful new cover by Lindsay Jane!
Be sure to order your copy and support these wonderful artists and writers.  The price is really a steal for such a great compilation on a truely original character.

THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY, VOL. 0 TP (OCT110459, ISBN: 978-1-60706-476-3), a 96-page full-color indie romance trade paperback for $9.99, will be on sale in stores December 7. THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY, VOL. 1 TP (APR110424, ISBN: 978-1-60706-390-2) is on sale in stores now. For more information about the source of THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY, visit
