  7. "Yellow Plastic" - starring Edward Canary by James Hindle.

    James is an illustrator, cartoonist and designer residing in Northampton, Massachusetts. His stories seem to evoke the yearning sense of misplacement you might find in a dream…but the experiences to which the characters subject themselves and one another often seem more real than real life. As an advanced preview for Irene 4, you can read James’s sad, pretty Irene 4 contribution in its entirety here.

  9. Veronica and the Good Guys in “Ain’t Pussyfootin!” written by dw, drawn by Andy Warner.

    Andy and dw are two of the co-founders and co-editors of Irene but this is their first time collaborating on a piece together. Rock warrior Veronica and her merry band of Good Guys make a (possibly) final stand against their monstrous fanemies The Bad Guys in their very own psychotic punk cartoon, “Ain’t Pussyfootin!” Trust us, they ain’t.

  11. "NYOS" by Emi Gennis, excerpt from Irene 4.

    Emi Gennis is a cartoonist and illustrator currently living in southeastern Kansas, where she teaches art at Pittsburg State University. Her true account of the end of a world depicts how brutal and surprising real life can be and opens Irene 4 on a note of doom n gloom…but somehow also on one of possibility.
