Welcome To Hoxford #1 Signed Variant (2008) Ben Templesmith IDW Publishing comic book. Retailers had to order 20 copies of the standard issue to get one of these signed foil variant comics, which are autographed by Templesmith. Acclaimed writer/artist Ben Templesmith (Wormwood Gentleman Corpse) creates his newest horrific comic book right here! In the debut issue of Welcome to Hoxford, Raymond Delgado isn't welcome at all. Rather, he's the newest inmate at the Hoxford Correctional Facility and Mental Institution. He has no hope of release, parole, rehabilitation, or decent conversation. On a good day, he'll tell you he's Zeus and only bite your arm off. Literally. On a bad day, you won't have time to scream to the prison guard for help. But Dr Jessica Ainley, his doctor for five years wants to help Ray and can't understand why the newly privatized, corporately run prison, won't give her access to her patients. And why are people always transferred into Hoxford, but no records show anyone ever transferring back out...? Eisner nominee and Spike Scream Award-winner Templesmith offers two terrifying covers for this debut issue.
