This article is about the graphic novel, for the insult "bighead", see insult.
Bighead is a graphic novel from Top Shelf Productions by comics artist Jeffrey Brown. The title character is Brown's version of Rob Boal as a superhero whose main power seems to be the fact that he has a giant head. Unlike many of his other graphic novels, Bighead is not an autobiographical work, but rather a parody of classic superhero stories. Bighead fights villains like Heartbroke, who built a Doomsday Machine after a bad breakup so that he could make the entire world as miserable as he was.
The graphic novel collects all the Bighead stories published as mini comics and one-pagers in other places as well as some content that is new to the book. Bighead is still in print by Top Shelf.
