Nutmeg Volume 4 – “It’s Betty & Veronica meets Breaking Bad. A Scarface for the Nancy Drew set.”

With the hope that they will see something of themselves, of their own experiences, however filtered through this heightened reality, within these pages.

Nutmeg Volume 4, which collects Nutmeg #10-12, will be in a comic book store near you on February 21st, 2018. Pre-order this delectable delight with the Diamond item code DEC170992.
