Media Release — The complete DEATH OF LOVE miniseries—the irreverent action-comedy from writer Justin Jordan (THE FAMILY TRADE, SPREAD), artist Donal DeLay (You are Not Alone, My Geek Family), colorist Omar Estévez (Heavy Metal Magazine, Batman ’66), and letterer Rachel Deering (In the Dark, Vertigo Quarterly)—will be collected into trade paperback and available this August.
Love sucks, and Philo Harris—self-avowed “nice guy”—is going to do something about it.
The Cupidae, a cabal of doughy little cherubs that are usually invisible, are responsible for making love work. And after Philo makes a particularly bad drunken decision, he can suddenly see them, clear as day. What’s a perpetually single guy to do? Well, according to Philo, he grabs a chainsaw and goes to war with love itself.
