Harper Alley is creating a beautiful collection of all six issues of Incredible Doom my comic about teens in the 90s getting their lives turned upside down by the early internet. It’s available in paperback and hardback (with a secret alternate cover under the slipcase!) on May 11th, but you can preorder now!
“Incredibly strong and not a little disturbing.” —Cory Doctorow, author of In Real Life
Welcome to a new age…the age of the internet.
Allison is drowning under the weight of her manipulative stage magician father. When he brings home the family’s first computer, she escapes into a thrilling new world where she meetings Samir, a like-minded new online friend who has just agreed to run away from home with her.
After moving to a new town and leaving all of his friends behind, Richard receives a mysterious note in his locker with instructions on how to connect to “Evol BBS,” a dial-in bulletin board system, and meets a fierce punk named Tina who comes into his life and shakes his entire worldview loose.
Unlikely alliances, first love, and minor crime sprees abound in this teen graphic novel debut about making connections while your world is falling apart.

>Perfectly captures the mystery and wonder of the early days of the internet.
One of the finest ongoing comics series from anyone anywhere.
WILL NEVIN - The Oregonian
A Rush of love for the brave beginnings of both the early internet and the teens who used it to find themselves and each other.
A compelling story complemented by pleasingly minimal art that skillfully evokes a sense of loneliness and isolation
A sharp and authentic wild ride that bought me back to my teenage years as a punk with a dial up connection.
A poignant and often hilarious reminder that technology is at its best when it’s easing the ache of loneliness and bringing people together.
INCREDIBLE DOOM is a gripping story with real consequences and the lucid immediacy of a dream, all wound around the things we’re willing to risk to satisfy our need for connection.
Emotional and unexpected, beautifully simple and yet wonderfully complex. This is what great indie comics look and feel like.
