's creator-owned tale of interdimensional espionage, evil twins and body-swapping love returns this September with Casanova: Avaritia
, a.k.a. avarice, the third of the deadly sins that title each volume. As the new chapter opens, dimension-tripping superspy Casanova Quinn is still bitterly estranged from his father -- and boss -- who has tasked him with the job of cauterizing the timelines that were were damaged by his previous leap through space-time. Which is to say, committing holocaust after holocaust as he obliterates entire alternate universes on a daily basis. It's quite possibly the worst job in all the worlds, but someone has to do it.
