Black Mask Studios’ ‘Alice In Leatherland’ #1 Sells Out; Heads To Second Printing

by Brendan M. Allen

Black Mask Studios has announced that Alice in Leatherland #1 has sold out at the distributor level and is headed to a second printing, with a new cover by series co-creator Elisa Romboli.

After her fairytale fantasy life is destroyed by her girlfriend’s infidelity, sheltered Alice heads to raucous San Francisco on a journey of sexual awakening, community building, and self-discovery.  

Created by real-life couple Iolanda Zanfardino (writer) and Elisa Romboli (artist) while they were in pandemic lockdown together, Alice in Leatherland is a new comic book mini-series from Black Mask Studios. Together, Iolanda and Elisa have created a diverse sex comedy and a very modern romantic comedy all in one, celebrating its diverse ensemble’s joys, kinks, and loves.

‘Alice, a young writer of children’s story books, is hurtled out of her fairytale-like life when she discovers her girlfriend has been cheating on her! Charmingly defiant, she leaves her small forest town and leaps into a new adventure to seek love (and find herself) in the fast life of San Francisco. 

There, her concept of pure, magical love will be completely overturned–but her biggest challenge won’t be reckoning with other people’s sexual drive, it’ll be getting a grip on her own!  From your new favorite writer and artist team of Iolanda Zanfardino and Elisa Romboli, Alice In Leatherland is a comedy about sex and so, inevitably, about every other aspect of life, too.’
