New York City, New York (June 24, 2019) – IT’S ALIVE! is proud to announce the upcoming publication of FATHER & SON OMNIBUS: REALITY SOLDIERS by multiple-Eisner Award nominee Jeff Nicholson. Nicholson is best known for his work on THROUGH THE HABITRAILS and ULTRA KLUTZ, but his most personal and possibly funniest work fell within the pages of the FATHER & SON comic book series.
Way back in the “ironic” 1990’s there was a bit of nostalgia for the 1970’s in popular culture. Now here we are in the 2010’s and can wax nostalgic (ironically or not) about the 1990’s, thanks to this Father & Son Omnibus collection. So turn off that smart phone and return to those fun-filled “sucky days” of self-righteous baby boomer father vs. grunge-era slacker son, as only the mind of comics veteran Jeff Nicholson could put forward. This battle of the generations eventually comes to a surreal all-out humor war, involving a few impossible and absurd deaths. The Omnibus collects all the Kitchen Sink Press, Bad Habit and Colonia Press issues, plus more!
And the book will come with exclusive bonus material including new story pages, artwork, and a Stephen R. Bissette essay.
11 pages of Interlude and Epilogue stories drawn especially for this collection
Expanded text and articles about the character’s development over a span of 40 years
Unpublished sketches, alternate covers and other rarities
An essay by Stephen R. Bissette written especially for this collection
Father & Son Omnibus: Reality Soldiers will retail for $24.99 and can be ordered with Diamond code JUL192022.
