In the final installment of the greatest love story ever told, about the domestic life of "Henry" and "Glenn" as well as their neighbors "Daryl" and "John," we are treated to three new short stories. This issue includes the shocking conclusion to the story of Glenn's mother living with them (spoiler alert: zombies), Glenn and Wendy make a daring rescue from Space City after Henry gets a pep talk from Lemmy, and Henry saves Glenn from some giant lizards after his drummer quits. It’s a true testament to the power of love to overcome even the biggest, manliest egos of our time. The book also features dozens of pin up art and full color covers from the original serialized series. Will our lovers continue to frustrate, inspire, and show us the way?
