In August, David M. Booher, Claudia Balboni, Harry Saxon, and Lucas Gattoni bring Killer Queens, to Dark Horse Comics.
Meet Max and Alex, two gay reformed intergalactic assassins-for-hire on the run. Their former boss—a fluffy monkey with a jetpack—is hot on their tail to take back his stolen ship. Even reformed assassins have to eat, so they take a mission from Alex’s old flame: your standard no-kill, casualty-free kidnapping recovery from a nearby moon. Only complication? Half the moon is ruled by a fascist dictator hostile to foreigners. They’re the Killer Queens, so what could possibly go wrong?
“Killer Queens is a wide right turn from Canto, but that’s what I love about it,” said David M. Booher in a press release from Dark Horse Comics. ‘LGBTQ representation matters, and we’ve created a fun, funny space romp that features queer characters but isn’t your typical LGBTQ storyline. The entire creative team has put their hearts and souls into making this gorgeous series, and Dark Horse has put their full faith behind it. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have readers come along for this wild ride.”
Killer Queens #1 is a four-issue mini-series that arrives on August 18, 2021.
