The Short Box

This week marked the end of Jeremy Haun's and Jason A. Hurley's first arc of The Beauty. This infectiously addictive comic takes place in a world where perfect physical beauty has become obtainable. No, not through any expensive plastic surgery, but through a simple STD. In fact, it has become so popular that nearly 2/3 of the population has taken advantage of it. But two detectives find out that it's benefits may not come without a price.

The Beauty reminds me of the hit video game Deus Ex: Human Revolution as it raises questions about vanity and corporate greed. If you haven't already read it, it's my recommendation for the day. You can pick up all 6 issues today at your local comic shop, or wait until March 23rd to pick up the trade on March 23rd for just $9.99. (Got to love those Image firsts.)
