Our Love Is Real by samhumphries

FIVE YEARS AFTER THE AIDS VACCINE…Plantsexuals riot in the streets for equal rights. Humans fall in love with dogs. And crystals are more than just jewelry. A chance encounter on the job changes a riot cop’s life forever as he finds himself caught in a bizarre love triangle that blurs romance, crime, and lust beyond recognition. 

A book that’s all at once bizarre, violent & endearing, Our Love Is Real is not to be missed. I guarantee you you’ll never read anything like it anywhere else.

A comiXologist Recommends:
Michael Crowe recommends Legendary Star-Lord #1

In anticipation of the August 1st release of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel is launching an all new ongoing series titled: Legendary Star-Lord. The series follows Peter Quill (portrayed on-screen by Chris Pratt), as he traverses the galaxy without the help of his fellow Guardians…at least for the moment

Issue #1 introduces us to the titular character, giving us a peek into the life of an orphan from Earth turned intergalactic outlaw. As someone who is unfamiliar with the cosmic corners of the Marvel Universe, I found this issue to be both informative and, most of all, fun. Writer samhumphries infuses the character with an infectious sense of adventure. Peter seems to relish his alter-ego, Star-Lord, and even the trouble it gets him into. But beneath this facade of carefree bravado and effortless charm lies the heart of a hero. In essence, Quill is a do-gooder who doesn’t always go about doing good in the best ways.

Paco Medina’s art harnesses the outlaw narrative by calling to mind westerns through stunning establishing shots and character designs. Paco also illustrates some seriously cool ships and weapons, exciting the scifi swashbuckler in all of us. The coloring, also by Medina, is rich and vibrant, lending a liveliness to the perils of full time space adventuring and thievery. Together they craft a story that is both intriguing and non-threatening for the uninitiated.  

Also be sure to check out Guardians of the Galaxy: Galaxys Most Wanted #1 and Rocket Raccoon #1 for even more pulse pounding off-world action.
