Limerence Press and Oni Press have announced a new sci-fi erotica graphic novel, Open Earth, written by Sarah Mirk, a contributing editor at The Nib and author of Sex from Scratch: Making Your Own Relationship Rules, with art by the Eisner Award-nominated Kim & Kim team Eva Cabrera and Claudia Aguirre.
Rigo is a young woman of her time: specifically, the time just after the collapse of Earth. After living her whole life on a small space station orbiting the planet, the cultural norms and rules of her Californian parents are just history to her. In between work shifts at the station air farm, Rigo explores her own desires, developing openly polyamorous relationships with her friends and crewmates. When she starts to feel one of those relationships change, however, Rigo must balance her new feelings with the stability of her other relationships, as well as the hard-earned camaraderie of a small crew floating in the vastness of space. But, as the ship motto goes, “Honesty keeps us alive.”
A heartfelt, positive, and erotic look at one woman’s adventure in love and sex, as a new generation learns to make their own rules and follow their own hearts.
Open Earth is slated for release from Limerence Press, an imprint of Oni Press, September 26, 2018.
