What is Comrade Himbo?

Comrade Himbo is a 130+ page comics and illustration anthology full of pure-intentioned himbos of all genders, who are thicc of thigh and even thiccer of heart. Here at POMEpress, we strive to publish the sincere and heartfelt work we most want to read. And with Comrade Himbo, we want to show that even though our country is broken, we can and must keep fighting.

But also, we just wanted to make a book about good hunks trying their best.

Why Do I Need Comrade Himbo In My Life?

The past year has really hammered home the fact that no one accomplishes anything alone. As we watch mutual aid organizations fill in the gaps of our failing capitalist government, it has never been so clear that collective, community-centered action is the only way forward. And how else would we (comics people) naturally seek to celebrate that drive than through comics and illustrations?

Who Contributed To This Book?

Comrade Himbo is an all-art manifesto on the strength of community, featuring 10 black & white comics and 9 full-color illustrations from 22 up-and-coming creators.
