Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children is a comic book series written by Dave Louapre and illustrated by Dan Sweetman, published by DC Comics under the Piranha Press imprint from June 1989 until September 1992, a total of 30 issues in the run (and a couple of anthologies published separately).
In late 2006, Dave Louapre announced there would be a collected edition published, but their Canadian publisher closed down later that year.
According to an entry on Amazon.com, a trade paperback containing the first 5 issues was to be released from BOOM! Studios in October 2008. On October 27, 2008, BOOM! Studios indicated that they were not publishing a BSFUC trade paperback and that they would be contacting Amazon.com to correct the false entry. The BSFUC website has not been updated since October 31, 2006.
