Issue #43: The struggles and beauty of Youth ✨

The Hypercritic Weekly Newsletter
Dear Hypercritics, 
The new season of Euphoria, on HBO, gives us the perfect opportunity to explore the theme of youth.
This age is as full of beauty as of uncertainty and has inspired so many of the authors we feature on Hypercritic. In the stories we’ve chosen for you, the autobiographical mixes with historical events, and fantasy meets with reality, with a kaleidoscopic effect. 🍭

➡️ Play Life Is Strange series | Feelings are stronger than magical powers
➡️ Read I Kill Giants | Low fantasy comics as a coping mechanism
➡️ Read Teller's Nothing | A brutal quest for the meaning of life
