I've raved before about my love for Street Angel, Brian Maruca & Jim Rugg's comic featuring a skateboarding homeless teenage superheroine. I may not have mentioned my passion for Maruca and Rugg's Afrodisiac, though, which is every bit as awesome.

But I had no idea that an Afrodisiac collection was in the making until I read the news on Super Punch this morning. And the post also pointed out that Rugg was sharing some sneak peaks over on his flickr stream, along with the solicit copy for the book.

Just what's going to be in this book? Well, how about Afrodisiac, in Vietnam circa 20,000 BC, fighting a T Rex?

Or Afrodisiac turned into a duck?

Here's the details and digits. You owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this. (And hunt down Street Angel if you haven't already. You won't regret it.)
