Your First Look At J.L. Westover’s Mr. Lovenstein Presents: Failure
Today Skybound unveiled a first look at the upcoming hardcover Mr. Lovenstein Presents: Failure, a collection of fan-favorite Mr. Lovenstein comics by webcomics superstar J.L. Westover that celebrate failure in all its (hilarious and heartbreaking) forms, coming November 2022. The first look features a sneak peek offering of book-exclusive comics and secret panels which have never seen print, as well as an introduction by leading webcomics voice Lunarbaboon.
In his (incredibly sweaty) new book, Westover offers up painfully hilarious observations and cringeworthy situations, uniting us all through one of life’s most relatable experiences—failure.
“The subject of Failure is dear to my heart, as someone who fails quite regularly,” said Alex Antone, Senior Editor at Skybound Entertainment. “Mr. Lovenstein Presents: Failure takes a look at this rich subject matter through J.L. Westover’s one-of-a-kind perspective, which is sure to leave you laughing and crying simultaneously.”
The beautifully thicc 6” x 6” hardcover collection features over 200 pages of comics, including secret panels, book-exclusive comics that can’t be found online, and an introduction by Lunarbaboon.
Mr. Lovenstein Presents: Failure first launched as a hit Kickstarter campaign in April 2021, earning worldwide media coverage and earning nearly $225,000, making it a top 10 webcomics graphic novel campaign of all-time.
Mr. Lovenstein Presents: Failure will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, and everywhere books are sold on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.
