For the past several months, POMEpress has been hard at work on GOING STEADY: our brand new anthology of comics about couples who are in it together. This book is exclusively focused on stable, solid relationships — stories that show the romance of everyday, loving partnerships. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’re giving you a sneak peek at this lovely and heartfelt book. We’ve fallen in love with it, and we think you will too.
We’re proud and excited that like our previous POMEpress titles, Going Steady features so many wonderful stories about queer characters by queer creators. These stories also feature relationships at different phases of life: young couples just starting to figure it out together, older partners who have weathered countless storms, and every stage in between!
We’ll start sharing preview pages soon! For now, we hope you enjoy getting the chance to check out the book’s beautiful cover and meet our contributors.
Without further ado, here is your very first look at Going Steady‘s beautiful cover, courtesy of the phenomenal Ariel Vittori:
