Some folks hate Valentine’s Day and everything it stands for, especially those doughy little cherubs that fly around with their bows and arrows. After a bad drunken decision, perpetually single guy Philo can suddenly see the Cupidae all around him. He’s left with only one option: Grab a chainsaw and go to war with love itself.
With a description like that, how can you not want to read Death of Love? If you missed the single issues earlier this year, you’ll be able to read the complete five-issue mini-series this August as Image Comics will be collecting it in a trade paperback.
The series from writer Justin Jordan, artist Donal DeLay, colorist Omar Estévez, and letterer Rachel Deering is a pretty fun read from start to finish, with some outrageous gore to boot. It’s most definitely a dark comedy.
Death of Love is set for release in comic shops on Wednesday, August 22nd and in bookstores and Amazon on Tuesday, August 28th.
