This week in the Small Press Spotlight we have a new one-shot by Natasha Alterici (Heathen) and Literati Press Comics & Novels entitled Haunted, Beloved. Set to release on July 20, the comic is “a story about love, death, grief, and closure.” The one-shot also marks Alterici’s return to drawing a full issue after developing a severe case of carpal tunnel syndrome. 

Read details from the publisher about the comic here:

The characters in Haunted, Beloved grapple with loss and loneliness in this sweet, supernatural tale. Alterici thanks the generosity of her fans and family for her return to comics, saying, ‘It’s been a difficult time, but I was able to focus on my writing, and am now very excited to share these new stories with you.’ 

And don’t worry, Alterici and Literati Press have more big news coming soon. Haunted, Beloved will be available at comic shops everywhere (Previews Code MAY2216210), direct from, and digitally through GlobalComix and Comixology/Kindle.”
