Titan Books has cornered the market on cute, dead things by taking on the work of the dastardly, debonair gentleman artist, Roman Dirge. The little goth girl Dirge dubbed Lenore started as a comic book for Xenophobe Magazine (and eventually became animated for Sony ScreenBlast). Since then she has filled the blackest of hearts with joy the world over. Now, Titan Books presents their second full-color, hardcover book, Wedgies, in the series about the snarky but lovable character who has "a knack for unintentional mayhem and occasional wanton destruction." The book has a gorgeous cloth cover and has been painstakingly recoloured by Dirge himself.

An introduction by Skinny Puppy frontman, aka my sexy boyfriend, Nivek Ogre, treats us to some poetic discourse in only the way he can. He aptly describes Lenore as, " ... six-tenths good intentions driven on by three-tenths impish malevolence roughly spackled over by one-tenth sheepish faux naiveté." The pages that follow back up this claim as we follow Lenore through her spooky adventures. Dirge breaks things up by inserting biographical commentary about his life as a low-rent magician (he actually set himself on fire one time), his first date disasters and other spiffy stuff. Wedgies also provides pages of tattoo flash for the fans to decorate their bodies with (most Lenore fans I know have her image plastered somewhere on their person).
