Love sparks a revolution in Symmetry, Vol. 1

Matt Hawkins and artist Raffaele Ienco team up for a sci-fi story aimed at disrupting the status quo in Symmetry, Vol.1, set to release from Top Cow/Image Comics this May.

In Symmetry, Vol.1, Utopia is here. Hunger, sickness, work… they’re all relics of a long forgotten past. All individuality, creativity, and negative emotions have been genetically bred out and medically suppressed. The population is limited to segregated areas.

But when a natural disaster rips the carefully organized society asunder, Michael and Maricela—two people from two different worlds—meet and fall in love, their relationship sparks a revolution. Will their love bring about the salvation or the destruction of mankind?

Symmetry, Vol.1 (ISBN: 978-1-63215-699-0) collects the first story arc, issues 1-4, and will be available for $9.99. It hits comic book stores on Wednesday, May 25th and bookstores on Tuesday, May 31st.

SYMMETRY, VOL. 1

Sina Grace is Self-Obsessed

Sina Grace is returning to his slice-of-life roots in Self-Obsessed, a new graphic novel memoir from Image Comics. Spawned from the one-shot of the same name, Self-Obsessed debuts over 80 pages of new material, providing readers an intimate peek into the brain of an artist asking himself what depths he’ll need to plumb to be anybody’s somebody.

After a critically successful run on two Burn the Orphanage miniseries, a return to the cult favorite Li’l Depressed Boy, and the launch of the all-ages series Penny Dora & The Wishing Box, Grace thought 2014 was his year to shine. Unfortunately, a number of personal tribulations—including a death in the family and the end of a longterm relationship—derailed all momentum and sent him spiraling into a depression. After leaving his hometown of Los Angeles and traveling across the American Southwest, Grace found his passion project for 2015: himself.

Influenced by nights spent poring over Joan Didion, Arthur Rimbaud, and Anders Nilsen, the scope of stories in Self-Obsessed reflect the ups-and-downs of breaking into comics, reconciling relationships past, and discovering what true selfhood looks like. Mixed with long-forgotten strips unearthed from the creator’s messy archives, conversations with contemporaries Ryan O’Connell and Colleen Green, as well as essays exploring gender, identity, and pursuing one’s dreams, Grace brings a whole new spin to memoir for the Twitter age.

Self-Obsessed (ISBN: 978-1-63215-449-1, Diamonde Code: JUL150640) arrives September 30 and will be available for $9.99. The graphic novel will include an introduction from Jeff Lemire, as well as a free audiobook download.
