"Koren Shadmi's Love Addict is a romp back to the great confessional comics of the 1990's and a trip up to the moment of mind-bending modern hijinx. So few comics find the sweet spot of sensational art, pitch perfect dialogue, compelling characters and flawless storytelling. Shadmi nails all that, and much, much more." — Peter Kuper
"Skillful storytelling, an inviting cartoony style, and beautiful establishing shots all conspire to make Love Addict a deliciously compelling read." — Joe Matt
"It's shamelessly honest and beautifully rendered: a dark and engaging look at the sometimes troubling phenomena of the modern dating experience." — Joseph Remnant
"Love Addict poses uncomfortable questions that only you can answer... it becomes a book that’s hard to put down." — Bleeding Cool

Who can stop when Lovebug offers an endless stream of prospective mates, sorted by algorithms and stored on a distant server, ready on demand like TV episodes or Chinese takeout? And in the face of this addiction, can K hold on to his friends, his job, or even his humanity?
The acclaimed author of In the Flesh and The Abaddon presents an evocative tale of modern love... in a world where even a strong signal can lead to a bad connection. -- a 232-page full-color graphic novel with 3” French flaps, 6.25" x 9"
