I’ve been remiss in not talking about Love and Capes more often, since it’s my favorite superhero book. Although it’s not really a superhero book, not in traditional style — instead, it’s a romantic comedy that happens to feature a superhero, and its pacing shows a strong comic strip influence, with frequent punchlines. It’s cute and funny and touching and well worth reading.
Since then, there’s been two more issues, and #7 is due out for FCBD this year. I encourage you to check it out. You have a bunch of options for catching up with this terrific series: new in stores is a six-pack of all the issues so far, at an $8 discount over buying them individually. The first three issues are available online free at Wowio. There are also lots of samples at the book’s website.
Hey, did you know that there are also “liner notes” to each issue at the website? I didn’t. Plus, artist Thom Zahler has been interviewed at Comic Pants, where he reveals a lot of the series inspirations, which only makes me like it (and him!) more.
