A horrific breakup story in five parts.
You have mated with it and found salvation. You watch as a life plays out that seems like it
belongs to someone else. But you're sure it belongs to you.

Now you / see what you used to be / itself
You love and change when moving wildly toward darkness.
Enter the Leviathan / as it too / enters you
Now see / you spend a life finding / yourself.

    Lonely Receiver is the kind of book I felt like I haven't seen in years and years. It's the kind of project that I think each time I read it, especially in collected form down the line, it's going to have a different feeling and I'm going to get different things out of it. Which is what I find with Thompson's books in general. Jen Hickman's work here is just fantastic and so much of it at times reminded me of the artwork of Bernie Mireault and Tim Sale from the original ongoing Grendel series that I just fell in love with it more and more. The talent and skill on display in this book is just nothing short of amazing. Read Full Review

    No ending could have ever wrapped up a story this relevant to the present and future of dystopian romance. A 5 issue portrait of what relationships are today in a world more concerened with buzz words than actual conversations that can lead to progression.
    Bottom line : it's cool to learn to love yourself, but not everybody wants to be isolated.
    Whatever happened to the days where people actually worked out relationships instead of just retreating to work on themselves, when in actuality they are just ashamed and insecure in how they treated their mate?
    Gone. Like this series.
    I thought tnere would have been some more violence, some more murders , I did not expect the ending to be essentially a P.S.A. against the re more
