Liz Prince’s “I Swallowed The Key To My Heart #2”

Continuing the story that began in issue 1, “I Swallowed the Key to My Heart #2” finds Liz forging new relationships while severely damaging the one(s) she already has. How will Liz tell Craig about Paul? I mean, he can’t get upset because they have an understanding… right? For “mature audiences only”, which is to say that I don’t want to get sued by your mom if you’re still in high school and aren’t allowed to read things with sexual content.
