Image Comics Brings Sexy Back


Justin Timberlake isn't the only one who's proficient in the ways of sexiness. Image Comics knows a thing or two as well. In fact, their hit series Sex is about to return in a big way: in a trade paperback collection that features the first eight series. Of course, Joe Casey and Peter Kowalski have to be thrilled about Sex Vol. 1: The Summer of Hard.

Regarding the first trade paperback, Casey said, "It's great to be able to offer this much content for just under ten bucks. This way, we can get even more people paying for even more SEX — and at an affordable price, too! Still not for the kids, though... but everyone of age who's tried SEX so far seems to like it. I know I do."

The series features retired superhero Simon Cooke and his pained attempts to re-acclimate to a normal, civilian lifestyle that he was never that good at to begin with. Of course, in Saturn City, nothing is "normal" and each month SEX delves into its psycho-erotic, urban underbelly — chock-full of former enemies and former allies — with unflinching abandon.

The book will be in stores on November 27. It can be pre-ordered in the September issue of Previews (SEP130552). Full press release below.

IMAGE COMICS GETS SEX-Y WITH FIRST TRADE PAPERBACK COLLECTION TO BE RELEASED IN NOVEMBER!

SEX VOL 1: THE SUMMER OF HARD, the first trade paperback collection of the hot new Image Comics series, releases this November. The book will be priced at $9.99 and contains the first eight issues of the controversial and acclaimed series.

Man of Action Studios' Joe Casey and artist Piotr Kowalski are the creators of the best-selling monthly series, which features retired superhero Simon Cooke and his pained attempts to re-acclimate to a normal, civilian lifestyle that he was never that good at to begin with. Of course, in Saturn City, nothing is "normal" and each month SEX delves into its psycho-erotic, urban underbelly — chock-full of former enemies and former allies — with unflinching abandon.

In reviewing the series, Comic Book Resources declared, "Joe Casey and Piotr Kowalski have created a stylish look at an often overlooked part of the superhero genre."

And from IGN.com: "This comic is a really great read, like the kind of stuff we used to get from Preacher, Y: The Last Man, and Transmetropolitian."

Regarding the first trade paperback, Casey said, "It's great to be able to offer this much content for just under ten bucks. This way, we can get even more people paying for even more SEX — and at an affordable price, too! Still not for the kids, though... but everyone of age who's tried SEX so far seems to like it. I know I do."

SEX VOL. 1: THE SUMMER OF HARD trade paperback is suggested for mature readers and will be in stores on November 27. It can be pre-ordered in the September issue of Previews (SEP130552).
