But maybe Dex's luck is about to change. Sue-Lynne, head of the Wind Coast's casino operation, will clear Dex's debt if she can locate Sue-Lynne's<br />missing granddaughter. But is this job Dex's way out of the hole or a shove down one much much deeper?

"Unhealthy" contains two comic essays from people who've always been told their bodies don't look healthy enough, and have mentally and physically damaged themselves in the pursuit of looking "healthier". Ignatz-nominated cartoonist Sarah Winifred Searle recounts how she'd sabotage her body by intentionally eating food that would make her sick, and her ongoing attempts to build a kinder relationship with food and allow herself happiness. Cartoonist Abby Howard sought out a calorie-counting program and started down a path of pika and point-saving which ultimately led to a lifelong struggle with bulimia. It's an ongoing battle, but both want to share with people what it truly is to be "Unhealthy".
