All the Hopeless-Savages are back in this fourth volume of the critically-acclaimed series! Zero’s in college (and hating it), though a tour with the Dusted Bunnies promises to rejuvenate her spirits—at least, that’s what she’s telling her therapist. But a rival band threatens to end the tour early, and without her family, Zero’s in no position to fight back. Meanwhile, the rest of the Hopeless-Savages are dealing with their own problems, including babies, contracts, and drug addictions. But if there’s one family who can pull it all off, it’s this one. Stunningly illustrated by Meredith McClaren (Hinges), with flashbacks by original series artist Christine Norrie, this is one volume fans won’t want to miss out on!
Oni Press has announced a new release date for the next chapter in the Hopeless Savages series. Hopeless Savages Break will now release in November 2015. Originally slated for August, the title’s release date has shifted due to a production delay.

In a release, Van Meter said:
The first Hopeless-Savages story came out in 2000. Fifteen years! And for every one of them, I’ve been so grateful for the support of Oni Press and the work of every one of the many amazing artists who’ve helped me bring this family to life. It took a really, really long time to write Break–largely for personal reasons; I was growing up along with the characters, and I felt a disconnect I couldn’t articulate. When James Lucas Jones–doing what a great editor does–suggested I run toward that, I finally found the emotional center for this story; then Meredith McClaren came aboard and brought beautiful storytelling, great instincts about the characters, and a wonderful sense of humor, making everything I wrote a thousand times better. The icing on the cake, for me, was when Christine Norrie was able to make time to do the flashback sequences; she’s been with me, Zero, Twitch and the rest of the family since the beginning, and I’m thrilled she was able to continue on this strange road trip with us.
