Drawn with a dynamic pen line and explosive color, Zegas tells the story of two young siblings adrift in a surreal, futuristic city. Upbeat Emily dreams of becoming a fashion designer but in the meantime needs to make rent money, while her moody brother, Boston, seeks to overcome his social anxiety and pursues an intriguing woman who is—unfortunately for him—seeing someone else. Throughout these lushly rendered stories, the Zegas siblings navigate their way through bad drugs, worse jobs, and confoundingly vague drunk texts. In this strange world full of alien creatures, neon buildings, and dreamlike landscapes, the relatable Emily and Boston bring us down to earth.

Press Highlights:

"Truly, we are blessed to be alive while Michel Fiffe is making comics. His greatest gift is his ability to create a page — there’s no visual element that isn’t stunning, from the evocatively sonic lettering to the ever-fluxing panel borders." — Vulture

"Zegas transports readers to a bizarre world of delightful banality and relatable cosmic wonders." — Adventures in Poor Taste

"The atom bomb force that Fiffe brings to his art is visible on each level, from masterfully composed spreads through perfectly framed panels down to beautifully blown-out individual lines. But just as impressive is how considered the comic is, how well every element of it hangs together when held up to the light." — The Comics Journal
