LONELY? THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT. Reeling after a breakup, young animator "K"
is pushed by a friend to join the popular dating site Lovebug. His journey begins as a search for true love, but soon awakens a relentless craving for novelty and sexual conquest.
With the touch of a button, K embarks on a dating spree, browsing a digital marketplace of the flesh. Who can stop when Lovebug offers an endless stream of prospective mates, sorted by algorithms and stored on a distant server, ready on demand like TV episodes or Chinese takeout? And in the face of this addiction, can K hold on to his friends, his job, or even his humanity?
The acclaimed author of In the Flesh and The Abaddon presents an evocative tale of modern love... in a world where even full bars can lead to a bad connection.

Bullet points:
" "Shadmi's stories are strange and bleak, and they feature some dark sexual politics, but they're compelling and memorable." -Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics

    This book is as different from Shadmi's previous work as you can get. This is not a bad thing at all. In fact, with the subject matter being something that we should have had some sort of dealing with, the story is perhaps more accessible. “K” is an average guy with normal everyday needs, desires and problems. It's a little refreshing to see that other people go through the same sort of emotional roller coaster as us. As such, Shadmi has tapped into the very scary situation of a person, or persons, putting themselves out there to be attracted, repulsed and judged by a complete stranger in the hopes that a connection is made in effort to have a partner in this thing called life.
