OPEN BAR TP (11 Oct Release)
Lenny and Beardo are two childhood friends with a lot of road behind them. When Beardo’s deadbeat dad dies and leaves them his old bar¸ they make a go of it as business partners. Easy enough¸ right? Maybe not. Running a business in a low-traffic area of town isn’t all it’s cracked up to be¸ but luckily for the boys¸ the one-two punch of viral media attention when their neighbor gets crushed by a 747 engine that falls from the sky and a sorta suspect (but very potent) beer recipe they stumble into catch the public’s imagination at just the right time. Things get even more complicated when Lenny’s ex-girlfriend Amanda shows up again¸ pregnant. Can our two heroes weather the ravages of success any better than they dealt with being losers? Can Lenny level up and be a good dad? Can Beardo forgive his dead¸ absentee father? Will the general public run them out of town when they find out what was actually in that beer? Eduardo Medeiros (Funny Creek) delivers a graphic novel for anyone who’s had more than their fair share of bad days and questionable choices! With an introduction by Skottie Young.
