Now #9: New Comics Anthology
Intended for mature audiences
This Eisner Award-winning anthology series is a self-contained cross-section of the best short comics stories the globe has to offer, at a price point that is unrivaled in contemporary comics publishing. This ninth issue of Now is anchored by the longest story featured in the magazine to date: "Misguided Love," a 40-page autobiographical tour de force by Texas artist Raquelle Jac. Ping-ponging among 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, and Emil Friis Ernst (Doctor Murder), as well as work from Now regulars Keren Katz (The Academic Hour) and Noah Van Sciver, who homages Basil Wolverton's cult favorite, science-fiction hero, Spacehawk.
