Sam Humphries, of CBGB and Fraggle Rock, and Steven Sanders of Uncanny X-Men: The Heroic Age and S.W.O.R.D. are playing the "and now for something completely different" game. We got this teaser image and description for a very different type of book in ye ole Newsarama inbox over the weekend, and had to share. The book, Our Love Is Real, is unique not just for its story, but also in how these veterans are publishing it: all on their own. The book is coming to print this week, July 6, 2011, but only through select retailers and via online mail order. However, anyone with an internet connection can also buy the comic online via comiXology on the same day.We'll have more about the book for you later this week, but for now, check out the description and the teaser image to your right. Official Description: "A splendidly-perverse and eye-poppingly gorgeous fistful of futuristic fun."
-- Jason Aaron (Writer of Scalped, Wolverine, and Ghost Rider)
FIVE YEARS AFTER THE AIDS VACCINE...Plantsexuals riot in the streets for equal rights. Humans fall in love with dogs. And crystals are more than just jewelry. A chance encounter on the job changes a riot cop's life forever as he finds himself caught in a bizarre love triangle that blurs romance, crime, and lust beyond recognition.
OUR LOVE IS REAL is a bold new sci-fi one-shot written by Sam Humphries (one of Wizard's "Five Writers to Watch in 2011"; CBGB; Fraggle Rock) and illustrated by Steven Sanders (Uncanny X-Men: The Heroic Age; SWORD; Five Fists of Science).Got a comment?
