Image Comics announces sci-fi romance ‘Bolero’ for January 2022

‘Bolero’ is a five-issue series by Wyatt Kennedy and Luana Vecchio.

Image Comics has announced a new five-issue sci-fi series called Bolero. The series is by Wyatt Kennedy and Luana Vecchio and is set to start on January 12, 2021. Image has dubbed it, Sex Criminals meets Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

“Page by page, Wyatt and I put our whole love and passion for comics into this miniseries to convey the strong sense of loneliness and despair that many feel after the end of a relationship,” said Vecchio in a statement sent to AIPT. “Running away might often seem like the simplest solution, but there is no simple solution when dealing with pain”

So what’s Bolero about?

A woman running away from a broken heart discovers a mother-key into parallel universes. The rules are: The key can work on any door. The mother will only let you visit 53 universes. Do not ask to speak to the mother. Never hop more than 53 times.

Kennedy added: “I sincerely can’t thank Image enough for giving us the chance to tell this story. I’ve lived with it and these characters for nearly six years, and no one besides the tremendously talented Luana Vecchio could have imbued this with such soul and joy and kept me from rewriting it for the 87th time.”
