Inspired by Willow Tree Café guest and comic book legend George Perez, HTLC Publishing (a subsidiary of HTLC Ventures, the parent company of The Willow Tree Cafe, Magnolia Square Market and Hollerbach’s Art Haus) is excited to announce its first comic book,
The Adventures of Wurst Man.
Theodore Hollerbach, a mild-mannered restaurateur heads into his local German cafe, located in the small town of Sandfort, just like he does every day. He comes upon his staff, who have found a mysterious box of sausages with strange markings. Theodore and his staff open the box – BANG – a cloud of smoke consumes the room. As the smoke dissipates, the staff realizes they have been given special abilities.
The Team now must learn to harness their new-found powers for good, all while dealing with the day to day challenges of running their café. Wurst Man takes on his enemies using the “3 Rules of Success”: Exceed Expectations, Create a Benefit, and Return a Profit. Wurst Man is joined by his “staff”: The Waitress, Alpine Maid, The Slicer, Mountain Man, Boot Boy and Chef Pat. This collection of heroes takes on villains including Dr. No-Call-No-Show, Juggerknockwurst and Power Outage. Join Wurst Man for a sausage fest like no other
The Adventures of Wurst Man, Issue #1, cover by Sydney Hummel, available only Saturday, April 1st 2017.
