Catrin Vander, a lonely video producer, buys an Artificial Intelligence partner that’s meant to bond for life. After ten years together, her holographic wife suddenly disconnects without a warning. The breakup drives Catrin to the point of near insanity. She’s alone for the first time in years and reeling from a loss she can’t comprehend.

Set in the new future, drenched in pastels and sunshine, LONELY RECEIVER is a horror/breakup story in five parts. Written by Zac Thompson (UNDONE BY BLOOD, THE REPLACER, HER INFERNAL DESCENT, No One’s Rose, X-Men) and illustrated in color by Jen Hickman (MOTH & WHISPER, Test).

Who are you/
//in another’s eye
It’s not what you think//
/don’t you cry.

LONELY RECEIVER #2

As she reels from a break-up with her phone, Catrin’s life spins out of control. Everything about her existence was connected to her partner. Now she has no money, no ID and no way to engage with the world. She’s drifting alone in a sea of connection, except for the pair of disembodied eyes watching her…

A week / of hours /
// wasted in // wait here
The eyes // in my wall //
/ Hate // they appear.

Finally putting the shards of her life back together, Catrin finds a new reason to live. A new set of eyes occupy her attention, and obsession grows, love blooms. It’s not a rebound if you found the one you were truly made to love.

A month // of long days/
// Finding the one you lost
In her / you chase away
/ tell truth // pay a cost

Reeling backward / and I’m changing //
// Not myself / I evolve / spinning into the green above
/ Descending deep / I’m alone / spiraling into others /
/ Until I meet // the one I love.

LONELY RECEIVER #5

A horrific breakup story in five parts.

You have mated with it and found salvation. You watch as a life plays out that seems like it belongs to someone else. But you’re sure it belongs to you.

Now you / see what you used to be / itself
You love and change when moving wildly toward darkness.
Enter the Leviathan / as it too / enters you
Now see / you spend a life finding / yourself.
