Comixology Originals ‘Love and War’ coming from creators Andrew Wheeler, Killian Ng, and Guillermo Saavedra.

ComiXology has announced a new ComiXology Originals series Love and War which features the competitive world of varsity tug-of-war. Launching its first issue April 12th, the five-issue series is written by Andrew Wheeler (Shout Out) and features art by Killian Ng and Guillermo Saavedra, letters by Aditya Bidikar and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, colors by C.R. Chua and edits by Allison O’Toole.

“Love and War is a romantic sports comedy about how our conflicting passions can pull us in different directions,” said Wheeler. “It’s a fun, upbeat, inclusive rom com about love, friendship, and competition in a world that takes varsity Tug-of-War much too seriously!”

So what’s Love and War about?

Welcome to the Aster Academy School for Arts and Sport, where Tug-of-War is the game of champions. This year the varsity Tug-of-War Team is determined to win against their rivals Kingdom College. Thanks to Coach Toth, whose motto is “Excellence, Commitment, Determination, Passion,” Domo, a shy, heavy-set boy, is named the new co-captain of the Aster Academy team. Can Domo help lead his team to victory while he struggles with his feelings for ambitious rival Gabriel and new recruit Emil? Will his co-captain, Jocasta, a serious athlete who will stop at nothing to prove she’s the best, help or hinder their chances? And in the end, will Domo rise to the challenge of captain, or do his real strengths lie elsewhere?
