Will “Our Love Is Real” Rock Our Comic Book World?

Posted by July 5, 2011 Comment

It’s a long long way from Fraggle Rock.

Sam Humphries, author of said title from Archaia, and Steven Sanders (Uncanny X-Men, SWORD) have teamed up for something far sicker, twisted and funnier. I’m calling it as  Transmetropolitan meets Lost Girls.

Welcome to Our Love Is Real. A one-shot comic book limited to 300 copies, sold only in the shops listed below from tomorrow, but also available digitally. I’ll have a full review for you then. But I get the feeling this could be a very interesting, popular and influential book indeed.

It is summarised as…

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.

If you can get a copy in print, I recommend you do. Because I also get the feeling it could pay for  whole week’s worth of comics very shortly. Here’s an exclusive teaser image.
