Praise for 200

“200 is a wild, sexy, twisted, and darkly entertaining trip into the future and deep into the human psyche. Brava for the kickass team of writer Jennifer Brody and artist Jules Rivera. Highly recommended!” —Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of V-Wars and Black Panther: Doomwar

Who wants to live forever if you have to do it alone?
It’s Eva Thorne’s 200th birthday. 

But it’s not a celebration, more like a funeral. Eva lives in a world where the cure for aging and illness has been discovered and administered to every person on Earth. Only, there’s one big hitch. It turns out that very few people can handle immortality. So on their two hundredth birthday, they have to take a test. If they pass, they get to live forever. But if they fail, they must be euthanized. 

Eva's not an optimist. Ever since the Escorts took her husband Owen away for his test and he never came back, she’s been chainsmoking cigarettes (they can’t kill her after all), binge drinking, and waiting for the Escorts to get it over with already. 

But on the way to her testing room, Eva glimpses a staffer who resembles her husband. 

Suddenly, she has a reason to live. The problem? Owen doesn't remember her. With the Escorts hunting her down, Eva must now find a way for him to remember their life together or lose him forever to his new immortal existence.
