A lot of them are very outlandish or sort of existential, or just very goofy. And now, he’s got a book of new comics, and we’ve got an exclusive first peek.

When was the last time you thanked the bugs in your belly? Even if the concept of a “healthy” microbiome is flawed, the trillions of microorganisms living in your gut (and mouth, and vagina, and nose, etc.) play a vital role in many of your body’s functions. They’re so essential, many refer to the microbiome as an…
If you like a bit of drama in your porn comics (and like to watch very short women getting it on with taller men), check out InCase’s webcomic Alfie.
