IMAGE COMICS RUSHES SEXPERT WRITER TINA HORN & ARTIST MICHAEL DOWLING’S FORTHCOMING SFSX BACK TO PRINT AHEAD OF WEDNESDAY’S LAUNCH
September 23, 2019
PORTLAND, Ore. 9.23.2019 — Award-winning kink culture writer Tina Horn and artist Michael Dowling are turning heads with their highly anticipated, sex-positive comic book series SfSx and a rare rush to second printing ordered by Image Comics ahead of Wednesday’s release. This second printing will feature new cover artwork by artist Katie Skelly.
“SfSx shoves its sparkly stiletto heel right in the face of anyone who has ever tried to keep sex workers down,” said popular porn actress, author, and activist Stormy Daniels. “Tina Horn’s work reminds us how important sexual freedom is to the American spirit.”
SfSx is ramping up to be one of the most talked about series of the year with this second printing already underway, a launch party at Bluestockings Bookstore, Cafe & Activist Center, and appearances at New York Comic Con next month including signings, panels, and offsite events booked.
Horn said of the early accolades for SfSx: "The sex rebel themes of this book are extremely personal to me, so I'm deeply moved that comic book readers are already responding to the title with so much enthusiasm! This may be my first foray into the medium as a creator, but I'm a life-long lover of comics, science fiction, horror, romance, and action-adventure. I truly can't wait to connect with this community of fans."
Set in a draconian America where sexuality is bureaucratized and policed, SfSx follows a group of queer sex workers keeping the magic alive in an underground club called the Dirty Mind. Using their unique bondage skills, they resolve to infiltrate the mysterious government Pleasure Center, free their friends, and fight the power.
“I hope that everyone who went to see Hustlers this week and feels hungry for more stories of sex workers kicking ass will put SfSx on their pull list at their local comic book store!" added Horn.
A debut comic book series writer, Horn has cultivated a dedicated audience and personal brand as the host of popular long-running kink podcast Why Are People Into That?!, a Rolling Stone reporter, and a two-time Feminist Porn Awards recipient.
The much buzzed-about new series was first announced under the former DC Vertigo line and makes its new home with Bitch Planet and Saga publisher Image Comics.
