The successful Kickstarter project will hit stores just in time for Valentine’s Day.
At this week’s New York Comic Con, Image Comics announced plans to publish Bingo Love, an original graphic novel by Tee Franklin, Jenn St-Onge and Joy San that was successfully Kickstarted earlier this year. The story centers on the love between two black women and explores how coming out at an older age can affect their families’ lives.
“As a woman who was married once upon a time, I understand how it is to come out as a Queer woman to my family,” said Franklin. “Bingo Love was important for me to create for the youth, the LGBTQ youth needs to understand that happily-ever-after’s aren’t only for straight people. If Disney’s Carl and Ellie can grow old together, so can Mari and Hazel.”

New poster spotlighting his creation ships in November.
Mouse Guard creator David Petersen has done a coupe of posters for Mondo in the past, but never one of his own creations — until now.
Petersen has created a poster based on Mouse Guard: Fall 1152, the first story he created featuring his diminutive warriors.
“For the Fall 1152 poster I needed to re-create the events of that book in one image that summed everything up,” he wrote on his blog. “No problem, right? Harder than you think. I started with the idea that I should have the 3 main mouse characters as well as the snake (everyone still remembers that scene from the first issue). So, I sketched on copy paper, Lieam, Saxon and Kenzie with the plan to put Lieam front and center, with the other two either side of him. The snake would loom up over them from behind.”

New series from Image imagines a world that is ‘chaotic, beautiful and repulsive’ — and has no secure internet.
Gerry Duggan, David O’Sullivan and Jordie Bellaire are imagining a world without a secure internet in Analog, a new series from Image Comics coming next year.
“David O’Sullivan is lushly rendering a world that is chaotic, beautiful and repulsive, sometimes on the same page,” said Duggan, writer of Guardians of the Galaxy, Last Christmas and many other comics. “He and Jordie Bellaire are the perfect collaborators to leap over this post-fascist tale of the great crash of the information age.”
