Callie was born with a bad heart. After it ruined her life, she went looking for a miracle: a heart transplant. Now she's got a brand new heart, but she's still stuck with a crappy job, crappy boyfriend, and crappy prospects.

Enter Mercer, a mystery man who gets Callie's heart beating like crazy. As her behavior changes and their flirting deepens, Mercer reveals he's her heart donor. Only Callie can see, speak to, and touch him - and he's in love with her, a love she feels just as strongly.

A master thief when he died, Mercer offers to teach Callie his criminal ways and how to turn them against her old job and kick off a nationwide crime spree. Hunted by the FBI and popping heart meds to stay alive, Callie will find out that nothing's as scary as two people in love with nothing to lose.

Review quote

"Heartthrob tells a terrific story that is both moving
and creepy: a refreshingly difficult protagonist whose situation is literally
heart-wrenching, paired with the half-man-half-metaphor who-twice-- offers her a
chance for a new life. The setup for adventure is intriguing, and I can't wait
to see how the leads' relationship unfolds!" - Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages,
The Death Defying Doctor Mirage) "Heartthrob is yet another terrific example of why
Christopher Sebela is such a powerful and exciting voice in comics. A premise
that is deceptively simple - even banal - and twisted in the furnace of fevered
imagination to be forged into something never seen before - and that you want
more of immediately. Wilson, Filardi, and Sebela deliver a ferocious issue one,
with the promise of even better to come." - Greg Rucka "Heartthrob is a crime romance with a lot of heart.
See what I did there? No, seriously: it's great. And from two of today's top
talents, you should expect no less." - Kelly Sue DeConnick (Bitch
Planet) "HEARTTHROB is the deeply twisted, 100%-fucked up,
black-hearted, funny-as-hell, and strong as a motherfucker love story that
comics deserves. No one loves you like this, weirdo. DIG IT." - Matt Fraction
(Sex Criminals) "Crime, romance and open heart surgery. Highly
(cardiac) arresting." - Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine,
