Lola XOXO Debuts April 9 from Aspen Comics

Aspen Comics has released an official first look of their brand new property of 2014 (we had an early preview when we interviewed the creator Siya Oum). Lola XOXO was created and illustrated by Oum and debuts April 9th.

The six-issue series unfolds in a dystopian western tale following young firebrand character Lola, who has been raised under the protection of a band of traveling merchants. Despite potential dangers in the “Wasteland,” Lola decides to perilously traverse what’s left of the United States in a desperate—and deadly—search for her parents. Oum discusses her enthusiasm for the project:

It has always been a dream of mine to have my own series. It hasn’t quite hit me. I can’t imagine how I’ll feel when I get the first printed issue in my hands. I feel like everything I’ve ever experienced, everyone I’ve ever cared for has a hand in inspiring the creation of this Lola XOXO. I couldn’t have asked for a better publisher and a better group of friends to guide me through the process. I am forever grateful.
