This minibook is made up of 44 pages of black-and-white comics dealing with love; it features works from Rebecca Artemisa Urias, Elizabeth Pusack, Julia Gfrörer, Cameron Hawkeye, Eroyn Franklin, Tim Goodyear, Suzette Smith, Jesse McManus, Maryanna Hoggatt, Cari Vander Yacht, Graham Kahler, Kinoko, Nusha Ashjaee, Kevin Hooyman, Theo Ellsworth, Sean Christensen ABT, Daria Tessler, and Patrick & Vanessa Keck. The stories, short as they are, each portray some facet or viewpoint of love; whether you like your comics ultra-realistic, historical, comical, surreal, futuristic, or poetic, there's something in here for you. This is an awesome introduction to a wide array of talented creators and shouldn't be missed. Grab a copy and gear up for the Other Worlds!
