Serving up a delicious concoction of sweet, sweet comics, chilled to frothy perfection — Liz Suburbia returns with a new annual, collecting the newest and best that she can dish out. We’re talking dog dreams, modern day saints, and the first installment of the ongoing feature Sacred Heart part 2, “Livin’ in the Future”(exclusive to Egg Cream)!
Sacred Heart told the story of Ben Schiller, one of the last remaining kids left to fend for themselves and try to be normal teenagers. Unfortunately, with no adults, no contact with the outside world, and a growing body count, a normal life was impossible. “Livin’ in the Future” picks up ten years after the flood and starts to piece together why the kids of Alexandria, VA were left to fend for themselves in the first place.
Liz Suburbia is a cartoonist living in Richmond, VA. She is the author of Alex Award-winning Sacred Heart, as well as Thee Collected Cyanide Milkshake, from the real Gimme Action. Liz is a member of the Out of Step Arts Collective.
“Egg Cream exemplifies the innovative, humanitarian storytelling that will secure Liz Suburbia’s permanent status as punk rock’s patron saint of Comics. Would it be too much to call it a ‘cult favorite’?”
