This Afrofuturist graphic novel explores gentrification and cultural appropriation with a clever blend of horror and humor.

Once a thriving working-class neighborhood on Chicago’s south side, the “Bottomyards” is now the definition of urban blight. When an aspiring fashion designer and her image-obsessed BFF descend upon the hood in search of cheap rent, they discover something far more seductive... and deadly.

Gentrification and body horror collide in this brutal satire from the award-winning creators of Upgrade Soul and Your Black Friend.

"I fell in love with this comic right about page one, and then just kept falling. Gentrification horror at its finest." — Victor LaValle, author of The Changeling
