Alex de Campi Is On A Twisted Romance And He Is Not Alone

Writer Alex de Campi (MAYDAY, NO MERCY) teams up with some of comics’ hottest artists for TWISTED ROMANCE, a four-issue weekly anthology miniseries with tales of love—love gone right, wrong, and everything in between.

“This project is a dream for me,” said de Campi. “I’m getting to collaborate with some of comics’ coolest creators and some amazing prose fiction voices. Everything everyone is doing looks so amazing. I’m just giddy that Image basically handed us the reins and said, ‘do whatever you want. This looks cool.’ So, yeah: come February, we’re going to break your heart, fill you with joy, and give you awkward pants feels. Sometimes in same story. Occasionally, even on the same page.”

Each issue of this month-long romance event will feature 48 pages of content: a main comic story, a backup comic story, and a backup prose story. Within the pages of TWISTED ROMANCE, you can expect to find a wide variety of themes, including the commoditization of breakups, the love of a shy girl and a wildly famous guy, forbidden love on an intergalactic dreadnought, and the deceptive lure of childhood as seen by a princess who’s afraid to grow up. Exclusive sneak-peeks can be found throughout December and January at participating sites; see below for details.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Alex,” said Skelly. “I think our comic will show off our love of ’70s film—and the darkest reaches of our brains. It’s going to be such a standout on the comics stand. I think the right people will find it and really appreciate it.”

“I am psyched to work on something bold and heartfelt, a story that knows where it’s going from the outset, that may end up somewhere surprising, but that surprise will be perfect,” added McNeil. “That’s the best thing, always.”

“Being the comics baby of the bunch, I’m really excited for people to see the fun world we’re creating,” said Gutiérrez. “Honey, get into this boots-the-house-down realness for your nerves!”

“Alex is an incredibly versatile writer!” said Trungles. “I love stories that explore the nature of love and agency, and I’m really stoked to work on this one.”
