“Making Pool Boys has tapped into all the tropical resort inspiration I’ve had kicking around in my head for years, and I’m SO excited to be working with Josh Trujillo,” said Cornillon, “Since day 1, we’ve been on the same page and fallen in love with our own characters as we guide them through this new romance”.

But wait, there’s more! The Pool Boys Kickstarter also has a hotline. Call it now at 218-666-POOL to access a toll-free hot-line to learn more about the vacation resort within the story and hear a drink menu. You can even leave a message at the front desk. Neat!

JUNE 14, 2022, (LOS ANGELES, CA) — A steamy demon approaches you from across the

pool. What do you say? Pool Boys answers this question (and more) in a summer romance

unlike any other.

From writer Josh Trujillo (Hulkling & Wiccan, Blue Beetle: Graduation Day) and artist Josh

Cornillon (Young Men in Love), with letterer Lucas Gattoni (Liebestrasse), Pool Boys tells the

story of Paul, a pool boy at the interdimensional Solitaire Resort, and Micah, a demon just

passing through. This steamy romance focuses on found love, fleeting connections, and the fun

we have along the way.

“Pool Boys is like a sizzling summer romance – scorching hot, aching, bittersweet, and sexy all

at once,” says artist Josh Cornillon, “This is the vacation hookup you’ve been looking for!”

Just in time for summer and Pride Month, Pool Boys combines Josh and Josh’s shared love of

fantasy, luxury, and unconventional romance. Inspired by Palm Springs, Cornillon’s art style is

seductive, playful, and vibrant. He creates a fantasy world where demons come to relax, and

the hospitality staff are always ready to serve. Trujillo’s story combines the feelings of

Heartstopper and the steam of Fire Island, creating an immersive world instantly relatable to

fans of queer fantasy and queer love.

“Making Pool Boys has tapped into all the tropical resort inspiration I’ve had kicking around in

my head for years, and I’m SO excited to be working with Josh Trujillo,” said Cornillon, “Since

day 1, we’ve been on the same page and fallen in love with our own characters as we guide

them through this new romance”.

“This is a book where I know I can stretch my fun, sexy lettering muscles and have a blast doing

it!” said letterer Lucas Gattoni.

“Working with Josh Cornillon has been an absolute dream. He’s a perfect vacation partner, and

we’re excited to share the Solitaire Resort with everyone who backs the Kickstarter!” said writer

Josh Trujillo.
