Now Read This | Becky Cloonan breaks your heart with ‘1989’
Earlier this week I posted about Becky Cloonan’s upcoming minicomic The Mire being available for pre-order, but those looking for more immediate gratification can find a complete short story from the Conan and Demo artist on the Heartbreak: Just Friends site.
Jonathan Rivera and Nick DeStefano are putting together an anthology of “the world’s greatest anti-romance comics,” and one of the stories in it is by Cloonan. And for Valentine’s Day, they posted her entire story, “1989,” an autobiographical tale set in the fourth grade.
Joining Rivera, DeStafano and Cloonan in the pages of Heartbreak: Just Friends are Vasilis Lolos, Star St. Germain, Liz Baillie, James Euringer and newcomer Lacey Whelan, so this sounds like something that’ll be worth your money once it is published in March. You can find more details on the book here.
