ECCC 2019: Lion Forge Announces At the End of Your Tether by Adam Smith, V.V. Glass, and Hilary Jenkins

Lion Forge kicked off day two of Emerald City Comic Con with the announcement of At the End of Your Tether, an all-new original series from Adam Smith, V.V. Glass, and Hilary Jenkins, set to debut this June!

It’s 1997 and Ludo is heartbroken. Arlo was the only real bond he had made in a stiff military upbringing. But since a move to a different air base led to their breakup, Ludo has been acting out—fights in school, skipping classes… He feels directionless now, and it’s beginning to weigh on him.

News of a trip back to their former home means that he will have to face Arlo at some point, so to ease his nerves, he gives her a quick phone call. Big laughs and a familiar sort of cadence in her voice don’t just instantly calm him down — they make him excited to see her. But when his family shows up at the base the next day, they find out Arlo has been missing…for a week. 

Ludo can’t figure it all out. He had only spoken to her the night before. Why didn’t she say anything about being in danger? Where the hell is she? Ludo sees an opportunity to redeem himself and takes it upon himself to find her. It’s the first time since leaving that he feels he has a purpose; something he can fix.  

But as Ludo gets further into the investigation, and details of her disappearance begin to surface, he starts to question how well everyone on base, in town, and even he really knew her. Gone without a trace, the girl he once knew everything about has now become a mystery. Where is Arlo Quinones?

The three-issue limited series features a brand-new expanded 48-page reading experience at a value price of $5.99 and is being offered to retailers as fully returnable. This is the second series in Lion Forge’s new double issue format, which debuts with Palle Schmidt’s Stiletto!
