Coming in July: LOVE ADDICT and a Hardcover UNDERWATER WELDER!

Can you believe it’s May already? That means it’s time to celebrate, because we have two gorgeous books in the new Diamond Previews catalog, ready for your pre-orders!

Lonely? There’s an app for that. Welcome to LOVE ADDICT:

“Koren Shadmi’s Love Addict is a romp back to the great confessional comics of the 1990’s and a trip up to the moment of mind-bending modern hijinx. So few comics find the sweet spot of sensational art, pitch perfect dialogue, compelling characters and flawless storytelling. Shadmi nails all that, and much, much more.” — Peter Kuper

“Skillful storytelling, an inviting cartoony style, and beautiful establishing shots all conspire to make Love Addict a deliciously compelling read.” — Joe Matt

“It’s shamelessly honest and beautifully rendered: a dark and engaging look at the sometimes troubling phenomena of the modern dating experience.” — Joseph Remnant


Reeling after a breakup, young animator “K” is pushed by a friend to join the popular dating site Lovebug. His journey begins as a search for true love, but soon awakens a relentless craving for novelty and sexual conquest.

With the touch of a button, K embarks on a dating spree, browsing a digital marketplace of the flesh. Who can stop when Lovebug offers an endless stream of prospective mates, sorted by algorithms and stored on a distant server, ready on demand like TV episodes or Chinese takeout? And in the face of this addiction, can K hold on to his friends, his job, or even his humanity?

The acclaimed author of In the Flesh and The Abaddon presents an evocative tale of modern love… in a world where even a strong signal can lead to a bad connection.
