    1st printing. Story and art by by Koren Shadmi. This collection of short stories in graphic form introduces us to one of the most powerful new voices in comics: Koren Shadmi. In the Flesh feels like a collaboration between David Cronenberg and Daniel Clowes. Shadmi uses darkly poetic and rich, absurdist imagery to take us into the dangerous heart of romantic love. In "Antoinette," a young man becomes obsessed with the girl of his dreams. In "Hunger," a near-death experience takes away a woman's will to live and love - but awakens in her a dark and insatiable appetite. In "Radioactive Girl" a student is destroyed by his love for a young woman whose powerful allure is literally nuclear. In these stories and more, Shadmi has created a haunting gallery of lost souls. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 150 pages, B&W. Mature Readers Cover price $14.95.
