GOITER is the first collection of short stories by Josh Pettinger. It explores the strange and unnerving experience of being a person. GOITER features a traveling ventriloquist accused of a horrible crime, the romantic adventures of a floating head fighting an interdimensional war, and a dystopian epic set in a distant-future online retail warehouse.
Described by Robert Crumb as “good social commentary, with some moments that made me laugh out loud. Tops in my book!”
Josh Pettinger grew up on the Isle of Wight, a thirteen-kilometer-long rock and notorious retirement resort housing three of the UK’s largest prisons. After high school, he moved to Chicago, where he began work on GOITER, his critically acclaimed comic book series (five good reviews and one not too bad). Josh currently lives in Philadelphia.
