Dark Horse announces official Husbands book tour beginning on March 27!

Official Press Release

MARCH 20, MILWAUKIE, OR—Following up on the incredible response to last fall’s digital comics series, Dark Horse Comics is thrilled to announce that Husbands will be hitting the road in conjunction with the collection’s release on March 27, as first reported on AfterElton.

Written by Husbands creators Jane Espenson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Once Upon a Time) and Brad Bell (VH1’s Pop Up Video) with an introduction from literary legend Neil Gaiman, Dark Horse’s Husbands is a comic-book continuation of the sitcom phenom that tells the story of accidental gay newlyweds Brady and Cheeks. In this witty new graphic novel, the couple receive a mystical wedding gift that launches them on an epic adventure—a tongue-in-cheek journey through iconic genre realms—filled with obstacles that threaten to tear them apart: a superhero showdown, a fairy-tale fantasy, a Holmesian mystery, an epic galactic battle, a madcap high-school romp, and a saucy secret-spy thrill ride.

Now, Espenson and Bell will hit the road, making their way through ten cities around the country throughout the spring to coincide with this highly anticipated release!

“We always knew that a newlywed sitcom for the age of marriage equality was an idea that deserved to exist as a show. And we’re so thrilled to see it turned into this gorgeous book as well. The humor, the beautiful artwork from all these talented artists, all the special touches that went into it—all of that makes this something really special,” says Jane Espenson.

ET Online/The Insider praises Husbands by calling it “one of the smartest, most unique and powerful pieces of entertainment this year.

Husbands, the complete collection, arrives on March 27, 2013, and is available for preorder now through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, TFAW.com, and of course at your local comic shop!

The official Husbands book tour kicks off on March 27 at the upcoming WonderCon 2013! Complete itinerary is below.
