Can you believe it’s our second year of Pride? Just like last year, we’re doing a queer-themed Nerdcore throughout June.

I was going to just post Maria Llovet’s hideous Crave comic but I thought I’d throw in the brilliant No One’s Rose to balance it out. (I seriously don’t get Llovet’s chicken-scratch style and subpar writing, but there’s just not a lot of male nudity to go around.)

We may not start with a bang, but I promise it’s only going to get better than this. (I mean, I really almost can’t go any lower than a Maria Llovet comic.)

Crave blurb:

CRAVE, a mysterious app that promises to make your desires come true, spreads among the students of an elite university who use it as a hookup app. David, a top student, engages in a game of seduction with the unattainable Alexandra. But as requests to the app escalate and wreak havoc on campus, David and his friends’ only chance to stop this spiral is to find out what really lies behind Crave.

Original title: Crave

No One’s Rose blurb:

Centuries after the fall of the Anthropocene, the last vestiges of human civilization are housed in a massive domed city powered by renewable energy, known as The Green Zone. Inside lives teenager Tenn Gavrilo, a brilliant bio-engineer who could rebuild the planet. But there’s one problem: her resentful brother Seren is eager to dismantle the precarious Utopia. From the minds of Zac Thompson (X-Men, Yondu) and debut writer Emily Horn with artist Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque (Letter 44, Avengers) comes a gorgeous and green solar-punk world filled with strange biotechnology, harsh superstorms, and divisive ideologies—ideologies that will tear Tenn and Seren down to their roots as they fight for a better Earth.

Original title: No One’s Rose
Writers: Zac Thompson, Emily Horn
Artist: Alberto Albuquerque
Colorist: Raúl Angulo
Letterer: Otsmane-Elhaou
