Jane Espenson and Brad Bell’s Husbands is Coming to Your Town!

BBell_  JEspenson_BNFollowing up on the incredible response to last fall’s digital comics series, Dark Horse Comics is thrilled to announce that Husbands will be hitting the road in conjunction with the collection’s release on March 27.

Written by Husbands creators Jane Espenson and Brad Bell with an introduction from literary legend Neil Gaiman, Dark Horse’s Husbands is a comic-book continuation of the sitcom phenom that tells the story of accidental gay newlyweds Brady and Cheeks. In this witty new graphic novel, the couple receive a mystical wedding gift that launches them on an epic adventure—a tongue-in-cheek journey through iconic genre realms—filled with obstacles that threaten to tear them apart: a superhero showdown, a fairy-tale fantasy, a Holmesian mystery, an epic galactic battle, a madcap high-school romp, and a saucy secret-spy thrill ride.

Now, Espenson and Bell will hit the road, making their way through ten cities around the country throughout the spring to coincide with this highly anticipated release!

The official Husbands book tour kicks off on March 27 at the upcoming WonderCon 2013! Complete itinerary is below.
