The book is here! You can buy it right now, for $16 in hardcover! It is a book that feels nice to read, and feels nice to hold in your hand. In hardcover it makes the perfect gift for your own best friend.
It’s a hard book to describe, but this is the blurb we came up with:
We are Become Pals is the story of Jane and Helen, and of their friendship. As with all friendships, it is a story filled with cops, lockpicks, astronauts, secret codes, face punching and quiet moments where you realize that you aren’t alone in the world. It is written by Joey Comeau (of A Softer World) and beautifully illustrated by Jess Fink (of We Can Fix It, and Chester 5000)
The hardcover has all the original chapters (which you can still read online for free right here), and all new material that follows their friendship further into their lives, as they get old and crotchety and awesome together. Here is the table of contents:
