CHILDISH GAMBINO AND LI’L DEPRESSED BOY GO TO “CAMP”
THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY #10 features special guest appearance by Glassnote Recording Artist
Special limited edition cover only available on the “Camp” Tour
Image Comics announces that “Li’l Depressed Boy” will take a trip to Camp Gambino in issue #10 of the series, featuring a special guest appearance by rapper Childish Gambino, who kicks off his much anticipated “Camp” tour with a string of sold-out shows including opening night on April 5th in Austin, TX. A limited number of copies featuring an exclusive cover designed by THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY artist Sina Grace will be available for purchase only on the Camp Tour starting in Iowa City on April 16th.
In the issue, a concert rekindles a memory of loneliness and a person who made a difference in Li’l Depressed Boy’s life — rapper Childish Gambino, who urges him to climb out of his cocoon and experience the world. The experience will lead Li’l Depressed Boy on a new path in his life, sending the comic series in a new direction. The appearance in the comic marks the first time a guest will participate in the actual narrative and not just as a setting.
“When I came across his music, it quickly ascended to the top of every playlist,” said writer S. Steven Struble. “I feel a kinship with what he says in his songs. He’s creating something earnest and true to his life, and I’m trying to do the same with mine.”
Initial solicitations of the issue featured a different cover and story summary from the issue’s final incarnation. THE LI’L DEPRESSED BOY #10 will include additional story pages and will be in comics stores on April 25 and can be pre-ordered now with the Diamond Comics code (NOV110460).
