The Epic Celebration of Failure Comes Home November 2022

LOS ANGELES 02/18/2022 — Today Image/Skybound announced the upcoming hardcover Mr. Lovenstein Presents: Failure, a collection of fan-favorite Mr. Lovenstein comics by webcomics superstar J.L. Westover that celebrate failure in all its forms. The book will be published on November 2.

In his (incredibly sweaty) new book, Westover offers up painfully hilarious observations and cringeworthy situations, uniting us all through one of life’s most relatable experiences—failure.

The beautifully thicc 6” x 6” hardcover collection features over 200 pages of comics, including secret panels, book-exclusive comics that can’t be found online, and an introduction by leading webcomics voice Lunarbaboon.

"It only feels right that my greatest success up to this point is Failure,” said Westover. “This book proved that nothing is too big to fail because this colossal tome is absolutely stuffed with my funniest comics. Failure has never felt this good.”

Mr. Lovenstein Presents: Failure first launched as a hit Kickstarter campaign in April 2021, earning worldwide media coverage and earning nearly $225,000, making it a top 10 webcomics graphic novel campaign of all-time.

“Last year, Mr. Lovenstein fans all over the world made Failure an unprecedented success,” said Alex Antone, Senior Editor at Skybound. “We are thrilled to keep the party going by bringing our celebration to bookstores everywhere. This book is for anyone in your life who has ever failed...even and especially you!”

Mr. Lovenstein Presents: Failure will be available at  comic book shops  and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play on Wednesday, November 2, and everywhere books are sold on Tuesday, November 8.
