Youth culture, urban dystopia, punk rock, ultraviolence, and a vicious sense of humor link these series.
Collecting the complete four-volume saga, including the prequel graphic novel, Couscous Express, this hyper-violent, tongue-in-cheek tale of mercenary bike messengers in New York City who do the jobs no one else will - the black market runs, the smuggling, the hits and the double crosses - breaks all the rules.

In the future world of Supermarket, cash rules over everything. Legitimate and black-market economies define the City and everyone in it, controlled by rival factions of the Yakuza and Porno Swede crime families. Convenience store clerkette Pella Suzuki suddenly finds herself right in the middle of it, heir to an empire she couldn't possibly inherit -- but the crime bosses aren't taking any chances. Armed with phone messages from beyond the grave and a natural sense of street-level economics, she fends off hit squads, following a path defined for her well before she was born. Supermarket is anti-consumerism doctrine with a healthy dose of humor and violence.

In a city filled with trust-fund babies and armchair revolutionaries, Heavy Parker rules the punk scene as a benevolent dictator. He sings lead in a local hardcore band. He puts out zines, pseudo-revolutionary material, and flypost propaganda about town. It's good to be king. Or at least it is until Missy, Heavy's girlfriend, goes away for college. How can a guy like Heavy be expected to handle a long-distance romance? Broken hearts and busted heads, this punk rock romance revenge story is a bitter and sarcastic send-up of MTV-era punk rock culture and the kids that worship it.
