PORTLAND, Ore. 03/12/2024 — Multiple issues of CRAVE by bestselling writer/artist Maria Llovet (Heartbeat, Faithless, Sandman Universe Thessaly) have sold out completely at the distributor level and are being fast-tracked by Image Comics for reprint this week.

"I can’t be more thankful to readers and retailers for their continued support of CRAVE," said Llovet. "I’m thrilled that people is enjoying the series, this is truly the most wonderful reward for a creator!"

CRAVE, a mysterious app that promises to make your desires come true, spreads among the students of an elite university who use it as a hookup app. David, a top student, engages in a game of seduction with the unattainable Alexandra. But as requests to the app escalate and wreak havoc on campus, David and his friends' only chance to stop this spiral is to find out what really lies behind CRAVE.

In CRAVE #2, Hidden-User has sent David a bunch of sexy photos of Alexandra, but who is this Hidden-User? And what will David do when confronted with Alexandra in the library? Meanwhile, Albert and Sofia are still trapped in the elevator, but things start to escalate in the campus corridors…

Perhaps best described as Black Mirror meets Eyes Wide Shut by way of Pretty Little Liars, this plot twisty, dark academia, six-issue miniseries has kept readers on the edge of their seats with every flip of the page.
