“I actually never thought of calling Wuvable Oaf the ‘Scott Pilgrim of gay comics’ before... but that's exactly what it is! Luce's charming art, smile-inducing writing, and downright loveable characters is the reason Wuvable Oaf is just as popular with my straight customers as it is with my gay customers.” – Isotope Comics

Like
Sex and the City but with adorable, ex-wrestler hairy gay men (or bears), Wuvable Oaf is Ed Luce’s debut graphic novel. This book fills a romance comics hole by portraying a likeable gay male character that is both fully realized and relatable. Mostly playful, but sometimes serious, Wuvable Oaf captures the levity of loneliness. Luce delivers a rom-com that would leave Zack Galifianakis and Zooey Deschanel feuding over who got to play Oaf in a hypothetical movie adaptation.

Oaf is a large, hirsute, scary-looking ex-wrestler who lives in San Francisco with his adorable kitties, and listens to a lot of Morrissey. The book follows Oaf’s search for love in the big city, especially his pursuit of Eiffel, the lead singer of the black metal/queercore/progressive disco grindcore band Ejaculoid.

Luce weaves friends, associates, enemies, ex-lovers, and the pasts of both men into the story of their courtship. Like
Scott Pilgrim, Love and Rockets, and Archie, Wuvable Oaf explores the joys and pains of romantic conquests, set against the backdrop of the San Francisco scene. After decades of comics about boy-loves-girl, Luce finally gives readers of all orientations some insight into man-loves-man. Oaf’s silly, sweet, and sometimes sexy stories will win over everyone’s heart.

Bleeding Cool

“Wildly entertaining.”

The Comics Reporter

•Comics website and blog

“The series has been one of the biggest word-of-mouth hits over the last several years in independent comics, due largely to the appeal of the character, for Luce's consistent presence at comics conventions and for the obvious craft chops apparent in his work.”

USA Today

•US newspaper

“The issues are fast-paced, funny and chock full of pop-culture references. Whether you're gay/straight/something in between, I think you'll find yourself rooting for the Oaf and his quest for somebody to wuv.”
