A well worn mixtape, a stolen convertible, a duffel bag full of cash, a fully loaded .45, and super-powers. Seventeen and on the run is the only way to see America right. Teenage outcast Duncan and popular girl Madison share a secret - they can do things other people can't. But their abilities take them down a dangerous path. After a deadly accident they are left with no choice: leave home and never come back. We Can Never Go Home is a new chance to fall in love with the doomed misfits who need to run away to find themselves.

The chapter/story title, "What We Do Is Secret," is a classic punk rock song by Germs.

  • Cover B is re-used from a convention exclusive of "We Can Never Go Home" published via Ardden Entertainment. According to the writers "the Ardden printing is basically a different book. It’s from a few years ago, has different art and a different story."
  • Many covers are homages to covers of the creators' favorite punk rock albums (as noted).
  • Unless otherwise noted, the retailer exclusive variants are limited to 250 copies.
  • There are two versions of the Hot Topic Variant - the regular one and a printing error with a price tag at $5.99 instead of $4.50.
  • The LCSD and Secret Exclusive variants are part of two different box set with the same set of comics (see below) but different variant covers.
  • Interlocking Covers:
  • Forbidden Planet/Jetpack variants of issues #1-3
  • NYCC Exclusive variants of issues #1-5
  • Rick's Comic City variants of issues #1-3
  • The "Local Comic Shop Day" variants (all part of the Black Mask LCSD Box Set):
  • The wraparound covers of the third (#1) and second printings (#2-3) have a connecting pavement in the foreground - their background images do not really connect though.
