Heaven no Hell / Michael DeForge.

DeForge, Michael, 1987- (author,, artist.).

Summary

Summary:

"In 'No Hell,' an angel's tour of the five tiers of heaven reveals her obsession with a haunting infidelity. In 'Raising,' a couple uses an app to see what their unborn child would look like. Of course, what begins as a simple face-melding experiment becomes a nightmare of too-much-information where the young couple is forced to confront their terrible choices. 'Recommended for You' is an anxious retelling of our narrator's favorite TV show--a Purge-like societal collapse drama--as a reflection of our desire for meaning in pop culture. Each of these stories shows the inner turmoil of an ordinary person coming to grips with a world vastly different than their initial perception of it. The humor is searing and the emotional weight lingers long after the story ends. Heaven No Hell collects DeForge's best work yet. His ability to dig into a subject and break it down with beautiful drawings and sharp writing makes him one of the finest short story writers of the past decade, in comics or beyond. Heaven No Hell is always funny, sometimes sad, and continuously innovative in its deconstruction of society."-- Provided by publisher.
