Viscera Objectica by Yugo Limbo

The second book by the breakout hit author of Be Kind, My Neighbor! A humble tailor is very skilled at his work, but finds the complex patchwork of love painful to stitch together. One day, he visits a farmers market and is drawn to a beautiful puppet, whose vendor utters only: “His name is Theu.” Though the puppet is inanimate, the tailor inexplicably falls for Theu, day by day finding that patchwork of love no longer painful. Viscera Objectica explores the depth of feeling that develops between man and object, lover and loved.

  • “A poetic and wonderfully charming story that seeks to open hearts and minds to the beautiful multifariousness of the human experience with love.” – Jess Fink, Chester 5000 XYV
  • “A deeply exciting work that feels as though it could only have been created by one specific artist’s mind.” – Mady G, Be Gay, Do Comics
