Press Release

If you’re a living breathing human being you may just desire comics content with steamy romance, crazy action, and gut-busting comedy and Dark Horse has what you need with Savage Hearts. Written by Aubrey Sitterson (No One Left To Fight, The Worst Dudes) and Jed Dougherty (World’s Finest, Harley Quinn), with colors by Lovern Kindzierski (The Worst Dudes, Norse Mythology) and letters by Taylor Esposito (No One Left To Fight, Red Sonja) the new five-issue series launches July 14, 2021.

“I can’t imagine restricting myself to a single genre. That’s why I’m so fortunate to have the support of Dark Horse Comics and editor Brett Israel, whether it’s on fight comic soap operas, raunchy sci-fi mysteries, or sexy jungle romcoms,” says Sitterson.
