After making a big splash this past summer with the self published, later picked up by Image Comics, Our Love is Real one-shot, writer Sam Humphries is back at it again. This time he’s teaming up with artist Dalton Rose on a 6 issue, self published mini-series called Sacrifice.
Sacrifice comes out on December 14th, with print sales available at select comic stores, online from TFAW.com, and available digitally, same day as print on Graphicly and Comixology. To celebrate the launch, Humphries will be appearing and signing copies of Sacrifice at the launch party for Sacrifice at Collector’s Paradise in Los Angeles.
Luckily, we don’t need to wait til December 14th, as we’ve got our hands on an exclusive sneak peek at Sacrifice right here. This teaser image gives you a taste of what the comic that mixes Aztecs, Time Travel and Joy Division, will be like. Yes, you read that right, Aztecs, Time Travel and Joy Division. I don’t know about you, but sign me up!
