À celle qui occupe mes souvenirs

Written by Annie West
Art by Kyoko Sagara
Purchase

Pourquoi réapparaît-il maintenant dans ma vie !? Alessandro, l’ancien amour de Charis, est revenu.
Il ne s’agit rien de moins que du célèbre Comte de l’éminent clan italien des Mattani. Leur première rencontre date d’il y a deux ans, dans une station de ski. Cet homme passionné au physique avantageux a ravi le cœur de Charis dès que ses yeux ont croisé ces iris émeraudes pétillantes de vie. Ce bonheur, croyait-elle, durerait éternellement… s’il ne l’avait pas un jour cruellement plaquée en doutant de sa fidélité.
Aujourd’hui, le passé est revenu la hanter de douloureux souvenirs et ses baisers volés, aussi sucrés et délicieux qu’autrefois, n’arrangent pas les choses.

God Hates Astronauts Touches Down in October

Ryan Browne‘s God Hates Astronauts, coming this October from Image Comics, is outrageous, raunchy, absurd, violent, extremely popular, and everything you could want in a comic. NASA hires the Power Persons 5 to keep the nation’s farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships. The bad news is that NASA is wasting their money, because this gang of hooligans is going to hang out, get drunk, have extra-marital affairs, and occasionally save the day in spite of themselves.

God Hates Astronauts began life six years ago as a comic written and drawn over the course of 24 hours, resulting in a madcap and free-wheeling pace and approach to storytelling. After that, Browne published God Hates Astronauts as a webcomic. Now, the softcover collection of God Hates Astronauts includes not just a fully remastered edition of the original webcomic, but one hundred pages of rare and all-new material not available on the web.

There are 21 pin-ups from artists like Chris Burnham, Rebekah Isaacs, Tom Fowler, Mike Norton, and more. The two original 24-hour comics are included, along with a reference guide that explains the parodies and inside jokes, and 18 all-new two-page origin stories written by Browne and drawn by some of the best talent in comics, including Tradd Moore, Tim Seeley, Riley Rossmo, Tom Scioli, Nick Pitarra, C.P. Wilson III, Zander Cannon, Jenny Frison, Chris Mitten, and Hilary Barta.

God Hates Astronauts will be in stores on October 9 and is currently available to pre-order from the August issue of Previews (Diamond Code AUG130620).
