Californian cartoonist Tom Beland met Puerto Rican newswoman Lily Garcia at a bus stop at Disneyland. What started out as a crush turned into love, and soon Tom dropped his life and moved to Puerto Rico to be with Lily. But a new home and a new love mean new problems, new heartache … and a new family to deal with.


Today on the Comics Page, we're proud to present an excerpt from True Story, Swear to God, Tom Beland's sweet, true-life romance comic, out now in a brand-new collection from Image Comics.
