A time-traveler whose job is to fix anomalies finds an anomaly that she falls in love with. That's the elegant high concept behind Pierrick Colinet and Elsa Charretier's The Infinite Loop, a stunningly beautiful and mind-bending love story about two women whose romance has more than the usual sorts of hurdles to overcome.

If you haven't been following the series, this preview of the final issue won't give too much away. Our time-tossed lovers face the sort of choices you expect to find in a final act -- be together or make a sacrifice. But these pages will also show you why you really should have been reading the series from the start, because Elsa Charretier's art and colors are breathtakingly lovely.

When we spoke to Charretier back in February, she had this to say about the books' lead characters:

 

Teddy comes from a future where love, hatred and all these primitive feelings are just here to disrupt society. She puts reason above all else. And Ano is specifically the small grain of sand that disturbs her perfect logic and quiet world. Ano personifies innocence, she constantly “oscillates” between a sweet reserve, and bold sexuality. She is sometimes really straightforward because, being a girl born from a time paradox accident, she has no filter.

So when the two girls meet, Teddy must reevaluate her values, and decide whether to suppress her, as she would have with any other kind of anomaly, or let Ano 'get to her'.
