Courtesy of Dark Horse Comics, we have your first look at the cover art for Killer Queens #2 out in September. What is Killer Queens, you might ask?
On August 18, Dark Horse Comics is launching Killer Queens which is written by David M. Booher, with art by Claudia Balboni, colors by Harry Saxon, and letters by Lucas Gattoni. It’s a campy sci-fi story from a full LGBT creative team with a tagline that reads, “They put the SASS in ASSASSIN!”
Announced back in May, check out covers by Claudia Balboni (colors by Harry Saxon), Chris Ables, and Elizabeth Beals.
Check out the full solicitation for the first issue below.
They put the SASS in ASSASSIN!
Meet Max and Alex. Reformed intergalactic assassins for hire. On the run. Also super gay. Their former boss–a fluffy monkey with a jetpack–is hot on their tail to take back his stolen ship. They gotta eat, so they take a mission from Alex’s old flame. Your standard no-kill, casualty-free kidnapping recovery from a nearby moon. Only complication? Half the moon is ruled by a fascist dictator hostile to foreigners. They’re the Killer Queens, so what could possibly go wrong?
Join rising star David M. Booher (Canto, Alien Bounty Hunter) and an all-LGBTQ creative team as they tackle issues of love, xenophobia, and the terror of fascist dictatorships in this hilarious sci-fi epic.
