Ares & Aphrodite (Oni Press) - A Romance Comic Book for the Modern Age
Shameless plug time! Have you heard about Ares & Aphrodite: Love Wars, the new romance graphic novel from Oni Press? Written by Jamie S. Rich, illustrated by Megan Levens, and featuring an afterword by yours truly, you aren't going to want to miss this modern romance comic. It's sweet, its funny, the characters are beautifully written and illustrated, and it will leave you craving more romance!
It'll be in stores next week on April 15th, but you can pre-order through Amazon (Kindle and paperback) right here. The trade is also available in my shop. Only the trade version has my afterword, but you can also pick up the single issues on ComiXology if that's your preferred reading method!
Will Ares, a successful divorce lawyer, finds himself working alongside Gigi Averelle, a wedding planner, when their respective clients-movie producer Evans Beatty and Hollywood starlet Carrie Cartwright - plan to marry. As Beatty’s ex-wives come out of the woodwork to cause mayhem, Gigi and Will make a bet - Gigi agrees to go on a date with Will if Evans and Carrie really do go through with the wedding. Should they break up, however, Will must reveal, in a full-page newspaper ad, how many marriages he’s ruined. Is Will a fool for love, or is this the start of a beautiful relationship?
