Comixology Originals Announces ‘Love And War’, A “Romantic Sports Comedy”
by Olly MacNamee
Comixology Originals announces Love and War, a new comic book series set in the competitive world of varsity Tug-of-War. Written by Andrew Wheeler (Shout Out) with art by Killian Ng and Guillermo Saavedra, letters by Aditya Bidikar and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and colours by C.R. Chua.
Wheeler explains why this more than a comic about Tug-of-War:
“Love and War is a romantic sports comedy about how our conflicting passions can pull us in different directions,. It’s a fun, upbeat, inclusive rom com about love, friendship, and competition in a world that takes varsity Tug-of-War much too seriously!”
And, if that’s not enough to sell you on this new series, here’s the synopsis and sneak peek:
“Welcome to the Aster Academy School for Arts and Sport, where Tug-of-War is the game of champions. This year the varsity Tug-of-War Team is determined to win against their rivals Kingdom College. Thanks to Coach Toth, whose motto is “Excellence, Commitment, Determination, Passion,” Domo, a shy, heavy-set boy, is named the new co-captain of the Aster Academy team. Can Domo help lead his team to victory while he struggles with his feelings for ambitious rival Gabriel and new recruit Emil? Will his co-captain, Jocasta, a serious athlete who will stop at nothing to prove she’s the best, help or hinder their chances? And in the end, will Domo rise to the challenge of captain, or do his real strengths lie elsewhere?”
Love and War #1 (of 5) debuts on April 12th from Comixology Originals.
