Andrea and Antonia are hitting the road! They’ve been locked up in one place for too long and Adrienne has inspired them. It’s time for them to get out there and really use their magic to do some good. There’s only one problem – they’re still incredibly competitive and more than a little irresponsible with their magic.

THIS LOVE SO BRIEF ONE-SHOT
Writer(s): Fred Chao
Artist Name(s): Fred Chao
Cover Artist(s): Fred Chao
Comics creator Fred Chao put together a small collection of humorous short stories from his love life. Starting off as comical reflections of elementary school crushes, house party hook-ups, and first relationships, these stories delve into themes of the responsibilities that come with age, inevitable life changes, nostalgia, and home.
New York Times contributing reviewer Douglas Wolk said of this book, “These stories about the places art and life intersect, and where they fly past each other, are honed down to details so sharp they pierce.”
