Dark Horse announces official Husbands book tour beginning on March 27 at the upcoming WonderCon 2013 and making it’s way across the USA and the Pond to UK ( Edit 3/22 – MORE DAYS ADDED)

Written by Husbands creators Jane Espenson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Once Upon a Time) and Brad Bell (VH1’s Pop Up Video) with an introduction from literary legend Neil Gaiman, Dark Horse’s Husbands is a comic-book continuation of the web-based sitcom 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, Jane and Brad are hitting the road, making their way through ten cities around the country throughout the spring to coincide with this highly anticipated release!

“We always knew that a newlywed sitcom for the age of marriage equality was an idea that deserved to exist as a show. And we’re so thrilled to see it turned into this gorgeous book as well. The humor, the beautiful artwork from all these talented artists, all the special touches that went into it—all of that makes this something really special,” says Jane Espenson.

ET Online/The Insider praises Husbands by calling it “one of the smartest, most unique and powerful pieces of entertainment this year.”
Whedonopolis says “Espenson and Bell are obviously having an enormous amount of fun in this endeavor, as the writing is crisp and witty.”

Husbands, the complete collection, arrives on March 27, 2013, and is available for preorder now through this link or your local comic shop!
