Liz Prince, author of the world’s cutest relationship comic, Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed?, returns with a new comic about being — gasp! — SINGLE. At last bringing her popular webcomic to printed form, Alone Forever explores the joys of flying solo, free to focus on what really matters: comics, punk rock, and cute boys with beards.

It’s the perfect gift for any friend! …If you want that friend to immediately respond, “Wait, what are you saying?!”
Lost Dogs (4/5 stars, currently priced at $3.99)
“Pure pulp pugilism.” — Rue Morgue
“Lost Dogs is rough, it is raw as hell, but it’s rough like a bareknuckle fist fight and raw like a rusty knife into your gut… Lemire’s stories pour out of him on to the page, his id spilling out into the world.”– from the introduction by Timothy Callahan
Long out of print, Jeff Lemire’s Xeric-Award-winning LOST DOGS now returns in a newly remastered edition, soaked with blood and ink. This 104-page mythic yarn follows a family man who’s larger than life… but even he may not be powerful enough to prevent the loss of everything he’s ever known.
Bold, brutal, and emotionally raw, LOST DOGS represents an acclaimed storyteller’s first professional work — an early exhibition of the gifts that have made his ESSEX COUNTY and SWEET TOOTH so phenomenally popular.
The Surrogates: 1 (4/5 stars, currently priced at $3.03)
The year is 2054, and life is reduced to a data feed. The fusing of virtual reality and cybernetics has ushered in the era of the personal surrogate, android substitutes that let users interact with the world without ever leaving their homes. It’s a perfect world, and it’s up to Detectives Harvey Greer and Pete Ford of the Metro Police Department to keep it that way. But to do so they’ll need to stop a techno-terrorist bent on returning society to a time when people lived their lives instead of merely experiencing them.
The Surrogates is a story about progress and whether there exists a tipping point at which technological advancement will stop enhancing and start hindering our lives. It is also a commentary on identity, the Western obsession with physical appearance, and the growing trend to use science as a means of providing consumers with beauty on demand.
This volume collects all five issues of the acclaimed comic book series. Packed with bonus content, inside you will find never-before-seen sketches and artwork, as well as commentary from the creative team that brought this breakout story to the page.
