Hoffman + Bobillo team on ‘Wag’ for Comixology Originals

Am I hearing my voice in my head, or someone else’s?

Scott Hoffman, aka Babydaddy of the multi-platinum selling rock/disco/glam/pop band Scissor Sisters, will team with artist Juan Bobillo and letterer Steve Wands, on Wag, a new five-issue miniseries coming from Comixology Originals in September.

This is Hoffman’s second work for Amazon’s imprint, following Nostalgia. This new story is set after the apocalypse, when a character named Wag starts hearing voices in his head.

“I think the pandemic got most of us considering the possibility of our post-apocalyptic fears becoming a reality,” said Hoffman. “This dystopian anxiety felt especially poignant to me in a time when global connectedness/national fracturing, conspiracy theories, continuing breakthroughs in neuroscience/neural implanting/our understanding of consciousness and the whiplash caused by runaway advances in AI leave most of us with more questions than answers about how to navigate our frantically changing world.”

Comixology Originals shared some details on what to expect:

Wag, a loner in a post-apocalyptic world, hears voices in his head. Could it be some kind of implant from the days before everything collapsed, or has he been slowly losing his mind ever since the pills ran out?  With the aid of an ever-growing band of oddballs, Wag sets out on a quest to discover the source of his troubles – confronting strange and deadly enemies along the way.

Look for the first issue to land on the digital comics platform on Sept. 5
