Liebestrasse is an LGBTQ OGN About Romance in a Time of Fascism

ComiXology has announced the original graphic novel Liebestrasse, an unforgettable LGBTQ love story set in Germany during the 1930s. This riveting story about two men who fall in love in the shadow of rising fascism marks the graphic novel debut of writer and comic book editor Greg Lockard, with art by co-creator Tim Fishfeaturing coloring by Héctor Barros, lettering by Lucas Gattoni, and edited by Will Dennis. Liebestrasse debuts November 6th and will be available to read at no additional cost for Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, and comiXology Unlimited members, and will also be available for purchase on Kindle and comiXology.

In Liebestrasse, Sam, an American banker, meets Philip, a German art critic, while living and working in Berlin. The freedom of the Weimar Republic is over as the Nazis win power and their sweet, bilingual romance is quickly hit with an unspeakable reality as Philip is arrested and disappears. Sam desperately searches for Philip with the help of Philip’s sister and their friends. Eventually the political situation around Sam has deteriorated enough that he is forced to return to the United States. Terrorized by the things he saw, Sam eventually returns to Berlin for answers as the post-war reconstruction begins in 1952. But his survivor’s guilt and shattered heart have sent him on a fool’s errand, across a city, country and world that have been forever and horrifically altered.

Liebestrasse came to the attention of comiXology Originals at last year’s Thought Bubble in Leeds, England, where it began as a 12-page historical LGBTQ romance which the creative team self-published as a mini comic. Now, the entire graphic novel will be available as part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content on November 6th, timed to this year’s festival where comiXology is once again the lead sponsor. Greg Lockard, Tim Fish and Héctor Barros will be at Thought Bubble, the UK’s largest comic art festival, taking place at the Harrogate Convention Centre November 9-10, 2019.

Lara Dominguez is a journalist chasing that one, big story. After a stint in the Middle East, the alcoholic reporter moves from her hometown of Miami to Creighton – a mid-Atlantic city that’s seen better days. She needs a huge, viral scoop that’ll send her into the journalistic stratosphere. Her target? Uncovering the identity of The Black Ghost – a masked vigilante trying to take down the wealthy oligarchs carving up the fading metropolis. But as she searches for the breakthrough story she desperately needs, Lara will have to navigate the corruption of her adopted city, the uncertainties of virtue, and her own personal demons.
