A rare one-shot comic book from Action Lab Entertainment, THIS LOVE SO BRIEF collects the personal stories of comic creator Fred Chao (ALISON AND HER ROCK AWESOME ROBOT). What started out as his personal experiences with love grew to include themes of the responsibilities that come with age, inevitable life changes, nostalgia, and home. New York Times contributing reviewer Douglas Wolk said, “These stories about the places art and life intersect, and where they fly past each other, are honed down to details so sharp they pierce.”

Fred Chao shared: “This comic is a collection of short, fun love stories, and seeing where reflecting on those stories can lead. Everyone has relationship woes. And exploring those relationships can help one understand the responsibilities that come with age, inevitable life changes, and the idea of home.”

He went on to say, “I casually drew tiny stories from my love life over the years, more to create something fun than anything else. Inadvertently, they joined together, creating something more personal that had little to do with my love life at all.”
