I Swallowed the Key to My Heart, by Liz Prinze (Microcosm)
In the comic I Swallowed the Key to My Heart, Liz Prince pursues a crush on a bearded gentleman while simultaneously pining for an ex. She flirts using the age-old tactics of teasing and hat stealing, with mixed results. Liz also ends up fighting with other girls for his attention, and rebuffing the advances of an unwanted suitor, all at the same time. It's a total boy-crazy funfest set in a snowy small town where everyone knows everyone else's business. The drama!
The Adolescent Demo Division are the world's luckiest teen gamers. Raised from birth to test media, appear on reality TV and enjoy the fruits of corporate culture, the squad develop special abilities that make them the envy of the world – and a grave concern to their keepers.
One by one, they "graduate" to new levels that are not what they seem. But their heightened abilities can only take them so far as the ultimate search for their birth families leads to an inconceivably harrowing discovery.
Written by Douglas Rushkoff, world-renowned media theorist, Frontline TV correspondent and author (Ecstasy Club, Media Virus and Program or Be Programmed, TESTAMENT), with full color art by Goran Sudzuka and Jose Marzan Jr. (Y: THE LAST MAN).
