"As far as I can tell, this will mark the first time a regular, continuing series, has offered it's newest book as part of this outstanding outreach effort." said creator, Thom Zahler.
Love and Capes is the ongoing story of Abby and Mark. She's a bookstore owner. He's an accountant who also happens to be the city's top super powered crime fighter, The Crusader. This situation offers some hilarious and offbeat challenges to their romantic relationship. In issue #4, The Arachnerd movie has been released, and Mark's just a little jealous of it. Worse yet, Darkblade's movie company is the one that made it. If that's not bad enough, the Liberty League has voted Arachnerd in as their newest member, and Mark's been selected to tell him. Meanwhile, Abby and Mark, with her sister Charlotte, go to her family's reunion picnic, where her brother, Quincy, takes particular delight in giving Mark grief.
Love and Capes #4 also features a special page on how the book is put together, from thumbnail to finished art.
