  2. "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.

    Irene 4 makes its debut at TCAF and will be available wherever fine comics are sold thanks our new partnership with Hic & Hoc Publications,

    Can’t wait? You can place your preorders now! You can also order the combo pack and get more Irene for less money. You can have it all.

  4. 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.

  6. "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.

    Look for my story about the Lake Nyos disaster in the upcoming issue of Irene, set to debut at TCAF this year.

    Nyos is a crater lake in northwestern Cameroon. If you’ve ever heard of it, it was almost certainly in reference to a tragic natural disaster in 1986, in which CO2 that had built up in the lake over time was suddenly released in a giant gas cloud, known as a limnic eruption. Over 1,700 people and countless animals were killed. Limnic eruptions are very uncommon, and I would imagine that for many survivors, at least at first, it would have been unclear as to exactly what had happened. I think if I saw every living thing around me asphyxiating for no discernible reason, I might be inclined to think the world was ending.

    This comic opens Irene 4 because Emi is amazing.
