IDW Brings The Love This August

IDW Brings The Love This August
Thom Zahler returns with new Love and Capes series
Exclusive variant releasing at San Diego Comic-Con

San Diego, CA (May 17, 2012)
– IDW Publishing is excited to announce LOVE AND CAPES: WHAT TO EXPECT, the fourth installment of the Harvey Award-nominated comic book series. The fan-favorite “heroically super” romantic comedy by creator Thom Zahler is back with an addition to the cast, a super baby!

Mark and Abby are expecting, but they’re not telling anyone yet. Will they be able to keep the secret from Darkblade, the world’s best detective? Plus, Mark has a secret of his own.

“I’m thrilled to be able to tell another chapter in Mark and Abby’s adventures. And there’s no greater adventure than parenthood,” said Zahler. “Except, of course, for a fight for existence itself against an all-consuming galactic threat, and this book isn’t about that. Well, probably not. Fifty-fifty, tops.”

The first issue will be in stores in August, but a special “Baby Name” cover variant will be released in July during San Diego Comic-Con. The exclusive variant is drawn by Zahler and features Mark and Abby exchanging baby names. Fans will have a chance for Zahler to draw their name into Abby’s notepad, as another baby name idea for the couple. LOVE AND CAPES: WHAT TO EXPECT will contain special guest inkers for the covers throughout the series including Sean Tiffany, Jerry Ordway, Mike Manley, Chris Bailey, and Rich Faber.

Fans looking to catch up on the series will be pleased to learn that the first three collections of Love and Capes will be reprinted and offered again in August. Also, the entire Love and Capes series is now available digitally from IDW and ComiXology. In addition, last February, Zahler offered a free digital six-page Love and Capes Valentine’s Day story that has never been printed. For those who missed it, click here to download the comic!
