“22 events in 20 cities made for an unforgettable 5 weeks on the road,” says Ezra Claytan Daniels. “Ben and I have sustained several minor injuries (including a chipped tooth and the loss of a fingernail), survived more than one confrontation with authority, and made countless new buds across the country. I’ll be happy to get back to my old routine in LA, but I’m already looking forward to hitting the road with Ben again next summer with our book BTTM FDRS.”
For their 45th anniversary, Hank and Molly Nonnar decide to undergo an experimental rejuvenation procedure, but their hopes for youth are dashed when the couple is faced with the results: severely disfigured yet intellectually and physically superior duplicates of themselves. Can the original Hank and Molly coexist in the same world as their clones? This page-turning graphic novel follows Hank and Molly as they discover the brutal reality that only one version of themselves is fated to survive.
