LITHIUM ION
BY GRAY WINSLER W/ ART BY ERIC JOYNER

George’s mower hummed across the Sky Line — an elevated park once known as the High Line, but rebranded in the 2040s when it was expanded over all four boroughs (Staten Island having been sold off to New Jersey, a change few New Yorkers protested). The mower’s blades chewed up the grass, a flurry of volatiles wafting up to George’s scent sensors. George found the smell absolutely delightful, as any good landscaping bot was programmed to feel. He enjoyed his job. He enjoyed being useful. And he especially enjoyed the few interactions he had with the park’s inhabitants.

NO ESCAPE FROM THE STORM
BY JOEL TAGERT W/ART BY CAITLYN GRABENSTEIN

The first time Kadi and Aliya were in the drive-thru of a Burger King in Fruita, Colorado. Kadi was behind the wheel of her car, a 2003 Ford Taurus she’d bought for eleven hundred dollars from a couple in Casper who lived in a filthy-ass apartment with four dogs and three cats. The car was kind of a piece of shit and gobbled gas like crazy, but it ran and that was the important thing. She had high hopes it would go the distance to San Diego.
The storm seemed to come from nowhere. One minute, blue June skies, the next, whipping wind, dust and debris, thick clouds boiling. When the first gusts sent a spray of dust through the open windows, Aliya stiffened, head jerking toward the horizon.

Do What You Love For A Living And You’ll Never Love Again

Platitudes and shitty advice sometimes team up and you get gems like, “Do what you love and you’ll never work again.” Generally, espousers of this advice have internalized the American value system that only ascribes worth to people who pour their entire identities into how they pay bills. However, we should probably update this sentiment with something like, “The quickest way to hate what you love is to monetize it.” I know this flies in the face of the social media-dominated e-reality that we increasingly find ourselves in, but well, it’s not like anyone could mistake what happens online for genuineness.

Rarewolf Weredar: All Along the Squatchtower by Nate Balding

RAREWOLF WEREDAR: ALL ALONG THE SQUATCHTOWER
BY NATE BALDING

Most people will tell you that there’s no evidence of Bigfoot. That these creatures — if creatures they be — don’t even shit in the woods like a common bear. They may have wild ideas about how the Sasquatch is an interdimensional being that phases through walls and turns invisible and lives on a flying saucer, which is why nobody can produce infallible proof that it exists. These people are, of course, completely correct. But nobody can deny the existence of Bigfoot’s zany cousin: The Assquatch. Commonly referred to as a Swamp Booger, the Assquatch comes to us with two hilarious names and some of the most horrifying taxidermy that’s also impossible to not love. Feel free to google it but side with caution on the specificity of the search terms. There’s also a very different Assquatch that, while I refuse to kink shame, does fall into the TV-MA category.
