Modern society is obsessed with outward beauty. What if there was a way to guarantee you could become more and more beautiful every day? What if it was a sexually transmitted disease? In the world of The Beauty, physical perfection is only one sexual encounter away.

I am in love with “Beauty” by Jeremy Haun. My local comic book shop even knows me by name now because I can no longer wait months for the next trade paperback.

TheBeauty_01-1The artwork is absolutely gorgeous. Also, the story is intriguing. The stories center around a new STD known as “The Beauty” – a STD everyone actually wants.

Riverdale Cast

For years, people asked, “Who killed Laura Palmer?” Now on the CW, it’s all about “Who killed Jason Blossom?”

Miss Grundy is now a vivacious, young music teacher in the high school with a sexual appetite of her own. Continue reading
