Preview: ‘Getting It Together’ #1 Is ‘Friends’ For Millennials By Grace, Spahi And Fine

by Olly MacNamee

Hiding under a cover purposefully harkening back to the TV sensation that is Friends, new comic book series Getting It Together comes from co-writers Sina Grace (Iceman, Self-Obsessed), Omar Spahi (producer/host of Dreamer comics podcast, Xenoglyphs), debut comics artist and lauded illustrator Jenny D. Fine, colorist Mx. Struble, and letterer Sean Konot. It will launch from Image Comics this June and, as you’d imagine from such a cover, is about friends. Friends who have to navigate the contemporary world of socialising and dating.

A fresh, updated spin on twenty-something, found-family dramedies like Friends, Getting It Together follows best friends Sam and Jack. Sam is dating Lauren—Jack’s indie rocker sister and roommate—and when Sam and Lauren open up their long-term relationship, skyrocketing tensions send social shockwaves through their friend group and the entire Bay Area. And Jack, caught in the middle of it all, may be forced to take sides in a conflict he never wanted to be a part of. Life gets pretty messy when you’re in your ’20s and your friends are your family.

Here’s a first look at the launch issue, out Wednesday June 10th.
