Dark Horse Comics has announced another new series from writer Aubrey Sitterson, followed March’s announcement of The Worst Dudes. The new title, Savage Hearts, is a collaboration with artist Jed Dougherty, colorist Lovern Kindzierski and letterer Taylor Esposito.
It’s also a romantic comedy — albeit one that also features barbarians, dinosaurs and evil sorcerers.
“I can’t imagine restricting myself to a single genre,” Sitterson said. “That’s why I’m so fortunate to have the support of Dark Horse Comics and editor Brett Israel, whether it’s on fight comic soap operas, raunchy sci-fi mysteries, or sexy jungle romcoms.”
Here’s the description from Dark Horse: In the tradition of your favorite will-they-won’t-they romances, Savage Hearts introduces readers to a brawny barbarian bruiser with a broken heart and a lonely beastman who talks to dinosaurs. What happens when they team up against an evil sorcerer? Sides and skulls alike get split and romance blossoms in this all-new jungle fantasy mini-series!
“I am excited for readers to get their eyes on this barbaric romance! It has muscular action, piquant comedy, simmering emotion, and was a pleasure to draw,” Dougherty said.
The first issue of the five-issue miniseries arrives July 14.
