Image Comics has released a first look at Sweet Paprika, a 12-issue mini-series from Mirka Andolfo that is scheduled to arrive in July, 2021.
Sweet Paprika follows the main character Paprika, a New Yorker of Italian origin, young and determined successful devil: workaholic, she is sure of herself, unstoppable, even feared. But, in her private life, the situation is very different: behind the immovable workaholic shield, Paprika hides an unexpectedly fragile soul, which is increasingly in danger of collapsing, due to the absence of interpersonal (and physical) relationships. Her heart is broken from her past and a rigid upbringing has made her a very introverted person. She wants a romantic relationship, but she doesn’t know what she’s doing. An unexpected event and the odd angel, Dill, could upset her boring and not-very-spicy existence.
“I’m used to being both thrilled and impatient for the launch of each new series of mine, but with Sweet Paprika I am really elated and proud. It is a project I’m very attached to, and that has led me to mix more reflective elements with funny and sexy situations typical of comedies. I had a lot of fun working on it, and I was struck by the love that, even before announcing it, the fans showed to me! I couldn’t find better partners (my publishers, my mates at Arancia Studio, and the amazing creators who worked on variant covers for me!) to develop Paprika and Dill’s stories, and I can’t wait for readers to handle the first issue in their hands!” said Andolfo in a press release from Image Comics.
Sweet Paprika #1 arrives on July 28, 2021.
