The Eisner Award-nominated anthology series continues with another entirely self-contained collection of short comics genius!
This ninth issue of Now is anchored by the longest story featured in the magazine to date: "Misguided Love," a 41-page autobiographical tour de force by Texas artist Raquelle Jac. Ping-ponging between relationships, hospitalizations, internet "fame," international travel, sex, romance, and trauma, Jac's dense, obsessive pages read like a manifesto, announcing the arrival of a remarkable new voice in comics. This issue also features Now debuts from Hartley Lin ( Young Frances), Ethel Wolfe, Ben Nadler ( Heretics!), and Emil Friis Ernst ( Doctor Murder), as well as work from Now regulars Keren Katz ( The Academic Hour) and Noah Van Sciver, who delivers an homage to Basil Wolverton's cult favorite, science-fiction hero, Spacehawk.
Now enters its third year of existence firmly established as the pre-eminent anthology of first-rate comics talent from around the globe. Focusing on short stories, every issue is an entirely self-contained cross-section of the best comics has to offer, at a price point that is unrivaled in contemporary comics publishing.
