PORTLAND, Ore. 07/28/2022 — Acclaimed author Sina Grace (Getting It Together) revisits the 2022 fan-favorite comic Rockstar and Softboy for more hijinx than ever before! The all-new Rockstar and Softboy: Go to Space hits shelves from Image Comics in January 2023.
The dirtiest, flirtiest bff of comics are back, and holy moly are they in dire straits! After getting brutally rebuffed by the most influential dudes in Lost Angeles, Rockstar and Softboy pack their bags and GO TO SPACE.
How... a world away from the world, can these two characters get into more trouble and learn more about their exquisite friendship!? Only one way to find out!.
“I never expected a book I made for my best friends to have legs beyond the original Rockstar and Softboy book,” said Grace. “These oversized one-shots are the perfect way to tell the wildest bestest stories, and I’m pushing myself to new levels of giddiness taking these two pals through the cosmos!”
In Rockstar and Softboy, readers were introduced to two best friends and their antics in Hollyweird, California. The one-shot took an intimate look at queer male friendship in a bombastic world filled with non-binary sorcerers, witches, social vampires, and demonic party animals. Their adventures continue in September’s Image! Anthology release before the pair blast off to space.
Rockstar & Softboy: Go to Space (ISBN: 978-1534324947) will be available on Wednesday, January 25 and in bookstores on Tuesday, January 31. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shop or independent bookstore or via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo.
Rockstar & Softboy: Go to Space will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
