The Eisner Award-nominated anthology series continues with another entirely self-contained collection of short comics genius!

This ninth issue of Now is anchored by the longest story featured in the magazine to date: "Misguided Love," a 41-page autobiographical tour de force by Texas artist Raquelle Jac. Ping-ponging between relationships, hospitalizations, internet "fame," international travel, sex, romance, and trauma, Jac's dense, obsessive pages read like a manifesto, announcing the arrival of a remarkable new voice in comics. This issue also features Now debuts from Hartley Lin (Young Frances), Ethel Wolfe, Ben Nadler (Heretics!), and Emil Friis Ernst (Doctor Murder), as well as work from Now regulars Keren Katz (The Academic Hour) and Noah Van Sciver, who delivers an homage to Basil Wolverton's cult favorite, science-fiction hero, Spacehawk.

Now enters its third year of existence firmly established as the pre-eminent anthology of first-rate comics talent from around the globe. Focusing on short stories, every issue is an entirely self-contained cross-section of the best comics has to offer, at a price point that is unrivaled in contemporary comics publishing.
