I Feel Love with SelfMadeHero
Love makes the world go round. It can also turn your heart as black as coal. I Feel Love is an anthology of short fiction that explores love’s dark, twisted underbelly and offers a much-needed antidote to everything that is sweet, cloying, and conventional.
Contributors from both the UK and US, bring their own illustrative style and unique take to bear on the many moods of love, often leaving romance behind in search of darker desires. Ignatz Award-nominated Anya Davidson explores a slash fiction obsession, while Kelsey Wroten, whose work has appeared in The New Yorker and Vice, depicts medieval penance. UK-based cartoonist Cat Sims gets entwined with childbirth, and Benjamin Marra discovers the attraction of swamp monsters on the fairer sex. Rounding off the collection, editors Julian Hanshaw and Krent Able offer their own contributions, with tales of wife-swapping and a mysterious black balloon.
A companion volume to the successful I Feel Machine anthology, I Feel Love questions the one emotion that is meant to make us feel good – but that often does the exact opposite. As unflinching as it is honest, this is the kind of book you don’t take home to meet your parents.
