The announced DC/Vertigo series Safe Sex by writer Tina Horn and artist Michael Dowling has jumped over to Image Comics as SFSX (Safe Sex) for a planned September 2019 debut.
Originally announced back in June 2018 as part of a part of a line-wide Vertigo relaunch, Safe Sex was announced for a 2019 debut but never made it to the point of actually being solicited. In the intervening time, a religiously provocative Vertigo book called Second Coming - also part of the line-wide relaunched - was nixed prior to publication, with it eventually jumping over to AHOY Comics. A third title, Border Town, was abruptly canceled following sexual assault allegations against co-creator/writer Eric Esquivel.
Here is the solicitation for the first issue. Look for Image Comics' full September 2019 solicitations later this month.

Notorious kink writer TINA HORN teams up with artist MICHAEL DOWLING (Unfollow, Death Sentence) for SFSX, a social thriller about sex, love, and torture that reads like SEX CRIMINALS in Gilead crossed with Oceans 8—with a SUNSTONE twist!
