Our protagonist comes from a broken home. Quite literally. Freak accidents at the steelworks where his parents work have left his mom snapped and his dad flattened. One day, he mistakenly swallows a glob of molten metal giving himself the strange power to radiate heat and light - like a lightbulb. As he evolves from Bulb Boy to Mr. Lightbulb, he finds that his unique abilities can be a curse and a blessing; while they alienate him from others, they also allow him to shine. A surrealist, comedic, heartbreaking, bitterly sarcastic, and deeply sincere work of comics autobio.
