Image Comics has announced that notorious kink writer Tina Horn (Why Are People Into That?! podcast host) will lead its forthcoming title, SFSX: Safe Sex. She;ll team up with fan-favorite artist Michael Dowling (Unfollow, Death Sentence) for the social thriller about sex, love, and torture. The title will launch this September.
Image Comics presents SFSX
SFSX takes place in a draconian America where bureaucracy and a police state control sexuality. Here readers meet a group of queer sex workers conversely keep the magic alive in an underground club called the Dirty Mind. Using their unique bondage skills, they resolve to infiltrate the mysterious government Pleasure Center, free their friends, and fight the power.
“When I think of my favorite boundary-pushing comics of the 21st century, Image is at the front of my mind. Bitch Planet showed that feminist social thrillers can have real satirical bite. Saga and WicDiv showed that outrageous queer sexuality can be an integral part of sci-fi action adventure stories,” said Horn. “Those are the books that inspired me when I was developing the world, characters, and themes of Safe Sex, so nothing could please me more than finding a home alongside them with Image.”
The title will surely stir up the comic book genre when it arrives. It will also certainly generate plenty of voices and opinions.
SFSX #1 will be available on Wednesday, September 25.
