BOOM! Studios announced HUSBAND & HUSBAND VOL.1, the first original graphic novel inspired by the multi-platform phenomenon created by Jonathan and Aaron Ferrara. Arriving in stores May 2019, this over-sized collection of Jonathan and Aaron Ferrara’s hit webcomic features 30 never-before-seen strips and a brand-new story only available here, making it a must-have for fans and new readers alike.
Love isn’t just roses and candy…sometimes it’s video games, cat hair, and comic books! Meet Aaron and Jonathan, real-life husbands who have been documenting their incredibly true tale of two nerds in love with their popular webcomic since 2015. With their distinctive charm and laugh-out-loud humor, HUSBAND & HUSBAND is sweet, hilarious proof that romance is alive and well, even if there IS a bit more Pokémon than advertised!
“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,” said Jonathan and Aaron Ferrara, creators of HUSBAND & HUSBAND. “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.”
