Rosy Press Promises Romance is Coming with Fresh Romance

Fresh RomanceFrom around 1947 to 1977, you could find regular romance comics alongside the spandex superheroes that packed shelves. Post Comics Code, implemented in 1954, the genre died a slow death due to self-censorship, but modern comics is all about diversity in topics, those depicted in the pages, and those behind the scenes. It was nice to wake up to news of the new publisher Rosy Press, launched by former DC Comics editor and Senior Editor of Comics Alliance Janelle Asselin.

The new imprint will kick off with Fresh Romance, a new digital romance comic magazine that’ll begin in May 2015. The series is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds. The first issue of the monthly anthology features sundry stories ranging from a clandestine, queer high school love affair to an impeccably researched and illustrated Regency-era romance. In addition to three forward-looking romances, each issue of Fresh Romance delivers a relationship advice column by a quartet of divorced writers, behind-the-scenes art coverage, and a fashion report.

In a release Asselin said:

Rosy Press specializes in publishing romantic fiction and nonfiction aimed at attracting a diverse readership. Fresh Romance forges a new future for romance comics with modern characters, stories and a wide array of genres.

Fresh Romance’s inaugural stories include:

  • A twist on the iconic high school love story by Kate Leth, Arielle Jovellanos, and colorist Amanda Scurti, in which a queer couple keep their relationship under wraps by pretending to compete for the same, equally secretive guy.
  • A Regency-era romance by Sarah Vaughn and Sarah Winifred Searle about a couple headed to the altar despite a mutual lack of enthusiasm for their marriage. (Spoiler: period costumes and culture are consummately researched.)
  • An otherworldly tale by novelist Sarah Kuh, who has a three-book prose book deal with DAW Books and who is penning her first comic with Sally Jane Thompson and colorist Savanna Ganucheau, in which a cynical, supernatural barista is trapped in this world… until she helps enough lonely souls find love.
  • The first cover from Kevin Wada, a former fashion illustrator, who uses his hallmark watercolors to depict Leth and Jovellanos’ high school heroines.

Rewards available exclusively through the Fresh Romance Kickstarter campaign support three-month, six-month, and ongoing subscriptions, including the opportunity to be drawn into a story, an original comic to propose marriage to your loved one, and one-of-a-kind prints and commissions, including: Five commissions by Chris Burnham; a Gene Ha sketch commission; a Dustin Nguyen-drawn original page from the Stephanie Brown Batgirl series; a commission of Harley Quinn by DC and Marvel artist Carmen Carnero; and an original page from the Stephanie Brown Batgirl series drawn by Pere Perez.

The comics will be available in a variety of digital formats including comiXology, PDF, CBR, or ePub, and will be DRM-free.
