Nominated for a 2013 Eisner award for Best Short Story, A Birdsong Shatters the Still, is by Jeff Wilson with art by Ted May. It starts off early one spring morning as a gang of teens congregate outside high school getting high and talking about Maiden just before going to morning detention. Chances are slim to none that these grass addled pimple faced young adults can make it through said detention without garnering even further punishment.
"Blades of Grass," is by Ted May with art by Mike Reddy featuring the character Beast Biplane from Injury Comics #3. Beast's best bud Brat Fink wakes up hungover and must contend with arch nemesis, Greg whilst cleaning up revellers' wreckage from the night before. Meanwhile Beast must go mano a mano with a new, sick villain: Steve in Valor! This is just the start of an amazing new story. Get in on the ground floor, etc!
