BOOM! Studios announced Thursday that it’s bringing the popular webcomic series Husband & Husband to print. Creators Jonathan and Aaron Ferrara, the titular husbands, have been working on the series since 2015.
The new edition will be formatted as a graphic novel, with 30 exclusive strips and an entirely brand-new story. BOOM! calls it the perfect jumping-on point for new readers, and a must-read for current fans.
Husband & Husband is a romance series documenting the nerdiest version of Jonathan and Aaron’s relationship. It’s a webcomic filled with laughs and love—and Pokémon.
The couple had this to say in a statement:
Time and time again we are reminded that we are better together—and it all started with Husband & Husband! When we launched our webcomic we thought to ourselves, ‘Wait, why isn’t this name taken yet?’ And then we realized, ‘Oh, yeah! It’s because we were just recently allowed to be married, haha!’ We like to take a comical approach on life and make people smile, whether you’re reading one of our comics or laughing with us (or at us) on our YouTube channel. We are SO EXCITED to hear more and more people use the term Husband & Husband, and hopefully seeing this book on shelves will give others the courage to say it out loud proudly.
Published under BOOM! Studios’ BOOM! Box imprint, Husband & Husband joins the ranks of hit series like Lumberjanes, Giant Days and The Backstagers. Look for the physical edition to hit shelves in May of 2019, and check out the full cover below.
