    Issue #4 of Happiness is finally coming out and I’m psyched! This is the heavy, heaving, hard hitter ***COMIX MAGAZINE*** that’s got it all. Leah Wishnia gets more ambitious with each issue, this thing is evolving fast. Gun Tit is playing the release party and I have a comic in here about getting into a car crash, becoming two people and fucking yourself. CHECK IT!

    I have a comic in here about middle school, guns, boys, dweebs, big boobs, and Pace Picante sauce. PREORDER!
