Some may be skeptical of the online sitcom Husbands‘ recent transition to the world of digital comics, but the Comic Book Slayer is here to inform you that those concerns have been proven false. You’re missing out if you don’t have Dark Horse’s Husbands: Drawn In in your web-based pull list! This week saw the release of the second issue of Husbands: Drawn In, written by Jane Espenson and Brad “Cheeks” Bell and featuring the art of Natalie Nourigat (Between Gears), and rest assured, comic book sniffers, that the level of wit, fun, and old-fashioned awesomeness does not drop an inch with this latest edition.
With their extremely successful sitcom Husbands, creators Jane Espenson and Brad Bell have exceeded expectations, earned rave reviews and praise from critics and fans, and pushed the classic premise of the newlywed sitcom into the modern American world where marriage equality is an ever-present issue (check out FBC’s interview Espenson and Bell here). Having mastered its online sitcom format, Husbands made the jump this week (with Espenson and Bell) into the sequential art universe in the form of a digital release from Dark Horse Comics, and, honestly, from where this Comic Book Slayer is sitting, Husbands: Drawn In #1 scores a near-perfect landing!
Come join the celebration as Husbands becomes the first online sitcom to be hosted by The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. All attendees are invited to a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream social following the program! Here’s the link to the original article with all the info you need
