Hoboken, NJ, December 10, 2018: The Book of Joe, a hilarious coffee-centered graphic novel, about a coffee mug who rebounds from a series of hapless relationships, will officially hit bookshelves on December 10th, 2018, just in time for Christmas.
— Joe, a coffee mug who spends a lot of time drinking coffee - “you are what you drink” says Joe - is on a journey to redemption after a series of relationships gone wrong. In a story that is keenly familiar to most of us, Joe’s predicament touching yet laugh out loud funny while dealing with the more enigmatic aspects of the relationships we have.
Capitalizing on the writing and illustration talents of Daniel Misdea, this graphic novel includes originally styled cartoons that create cleverly caffeinated humor readers will love.
“Following his tragic, albeit hilarious, breakups, Joe spirals into a self-destructive state until he befriends a naked monkey, Oscar, who helps Joe to overcome his past,” said Misdea. “It’s a storyline that everyone can relate to and is centered around everyone’s favorite morning beverage: coffee. It’s a bit like Dr. Seuss, but with a grown-up twist!”
Misdea goes onto add that Joe and Oscar encounter a variety of hysterical and witty situations, making for an endearing, much talked about graphic novel that will resonate with a variety of readers. The themes may be familiar but these new and highly original characters cast them in a completely different light with jokes and situations that simply couldn’t be written in any other way.
The Book of Joe is part of Misdea’s growing online comic series, Bold Coarse Blend. Following Misdea’s first sketch of Joe 4 years ago, he immediately felt a connection to the character. After a few doodles and comics, he launched Bold Coarse Blend on Instagram which eventually led to the official publishing of The Book of Joe with Koehler Books.
“The Book of Joe has been a long time coming,” said Misdea. “It’s a feel-good story with a great character in Joe which is why I am so excited to share this story with the world.”
