Leeroy and Popo
Meet Leeroy, a twenty-something bear, unsure about where he’s heading in life. He doesn’t have a job, he doesn’t go to university and he definitely doesn’t have any kind of plan outside of hanging out with his dinosaur buddy Popo. Wasting away their days together, they laze about, smoke weed, play way too many video games and generally avoid anything that might be construed as work.
In Leeroy and Popo, we join the dilatory duo as they overcome obstacles as serious as sustaining injuries from excessive Nintendo Wii Sports use and strive for goals as triumphant as trying to win Leeroy the affections of Cecilia, the cute girl who works in the local coffee shop.
Comprised of several self-contained episodes of stoned musing, awkward dates, Facebook surfing and more, Leeroy and Popo’s adventures — or lack thereof — layer together to create a brilliantly-observed, affectionately sardonic portrait of slacker subculture in the 21st Century. Readers are sure to see a familiar face or two within the book’s cast of legendary loafers, if not their own!
The debut book from upcoming creator Louis Roskosch, Nobrow are proud to continue their tradition of supporting new talent in this latest release from the Serial Box line. Be sure not miss the first instalment of The Adventures of Leeroy and Popo.
