Liz Suburbia returns with a new annual, collecting the newest and best that she can dish out. We’re talking dog dreams, modern day saints, and the first installment of the ongoing feature Sacred Heart part 2, “Livin’ in the Future.”
Sacred Heart (Fantagraphics) told the story of Ben Schiller, one of the last remaining kids in Alexandria, part of a posse of teens who were left to fend for themselves. Unfortunately, with no adults, no contact with the outside world, and a growing body count, a normal life was impossible. “Livin’ in the Future” picks up ten years after the flood and starts to piece together why the kids of Alexandria, VA, were abandoned.

Your local bookseller has already conveniently shelved this book under “DIY outcast community” or “YA dystopia.” Egg Cream is filled with a folio of surreal dreams and adult- aged characters looking back on terrible situations which, as younger humans, they were shit at handling.
Egg Cream exemplifies the innovative, humanitarian storytelling that will secure Liz Suburbia’s permanent status as punk rock’s patron saint of Comics. Would it be too much to call it a ‘cult favorite’?
