An Army of Lovers will be Beaten
Set during a war between a blue-skinned people and constellations in the night sky, An Army of Lovers will be Beaten is the story of officers on furlough overseas. Our hero, Lieutenant Buckeley arrives in the port town of Catalpa looking for a place to nap only to find himself dodging punches, bombs, and perverts. His profound gift for staying alive and near tragic level of kindness opens a world of friendship, mass murder, visions, anxiety, and song. With a cast angelic and degenerate alike, this is a tale of enormous domination and even greater empathy. Volumes One and Two present the collected books 1-6. More installments forthcoming!

An Army of Lovers will be Beaten, Book 7 nears its release! It’s the most recent chapter in the Army of Lovers saga. Six years running, this story follows the surreal happenings in a war between a blue-skinned people and constellations in the night sky. Book 7 delivers hallucinations, pawn shops, clinics, a mountain of suffering, romantic dysfunction, and some graphically romantic…function. It will be debuting at this year’s CAKE (Chicago Alternative Comics Expo) I’m not sure how much it will cost yet, but expect it to be available through this website and Quimby’s Bookstore sometime after the Expo. Wonderful!
