Literature, Self-Doubt, and Bad Sex: Read a Complete Comics Story From In the Flesh

Koren Shadmi isn't interested in your happy relationship. The Israeli comics creator's new collection of short stories, In the Flesh, is a compendium of bad dates, pervy grandfathers, screwed-up exes, and dalliances with the decapitated. It's all expertly drawn, surprisingly dirty, and wickedly unsettling, like a horror movie mixed with a sex comedy.
