New Comic Book: A World Without AIDS

A new title is coming from comic writer Sam Humphries and illustrator Steven Sanders which posits an interesting scenario: what would the world be like with an AIDS vaccine?

Playing in a tongue-in-cheek manner of the old argument that if we let gays marry, then we'd have to let people marry their dogs too, "Our Love Is Real" details the encounters a riot cop comes up against in the course of his job-- plantsexuals, for instance-- and how they change his life.

"FIVE YEARS AFTER THE AIDS VACCINE...Plantsexuals riot in the streets for equal rights. Humans fall in love with dogs. And crystals are more than just jewelry. A chance encounter on the job changes a riot cop's life forever as he finds himself caught in a bizarre love triangle that blurs romance, crime, and lust beyond recognition."

You'll be hard-pressed to find the 24-page book, however, as it is in just a few select stores nationwide.  Click on over to Towleroad to find out who is carrying the title.
