As if Florida Man itself wasn’t absurdly funny by nature of being notoriously strange and unusual, downright ridiculous or blatantly outrageous, Eisner winning writer Mike Baron has adapted one of Baron’s best-selling books into a graphic novel! Mike Baron has authored comic books for the Marvel Comics and DC Comics universes that include The Flash, Punisher, and Star Wars, but it is Nexus, Mike’s ground-breaking science fiction indie comic which earned him two Eisner Awards and an Inkpot Award. Nexus was co-created with illustrator Steve Rude and is published in five different languages.

And now for something completely NOT Nexus

Available exclusively through Indiegogo for a limited time, Florida Man the Graphic Novel V1 is 64 pages of the bizarre adventures of Gary Duba having a bad day. Well, judging from the cover, no one’s jumping the shark here. They’re jumping the gators in this wild, redneck, swamp-loving tale.

Of course Gary’s got dreams! But someone has to take care of the snake in his toilet, a rabid raccoon, and his gal Krystal, who’s sitting in jail for licking the manager at Waffle Hut.

The Florida Man Creative Team

In addition to Mike Baron, the creative team behind Florida Man the graphic novel is a bevy of artists including Todd Mulrooney, the main illustrator for the book as well as contributions from Val Mayerik, Pat Broderick, Joe Comstock, Barry McClain Jr, Chuck Dixon, Elias Martins, Marcelo Salaza, and Simon Pothier. Colors are by accomplished digital painter Ichsan Ansori, with lettering by Warren Montgomery. The main cover was colored by Brett R. Smith.




Where to Find the Book

As mentioned earlier, Florida Man Volume 1 is still exclusively available on Indiegogo through March 1, 2021 and it’s being published as a premium square-bound book, using the best paper quality, and the best possible cover stock to ensure a rigid, solidly crafted physical copy.

Of course you don’t have to be a Florida resident to enjoy this book because you all know that Florida Man stories are second only to the Darwin Awards. Most of the time these fools live… most of the time. But this book has female wrestlers who will undoubtedly kick your tail from here to Sunday.

Mike Baron and his merry band of Florida Man co-creators want to get this out to as many people as possible so help spread the word.
