Image/Shadowline Announces New Road-Trip Love Story ‘A Thing Called Truth’

by Olly MacNamee

Alice in Leatherland creative team — writer Iolanda Zanfardino and artist Elisa Romboli — reunite for new five issue comic book series, A Thing Called Truth from Image/Shadowline.

“In A Thing Called Truth, a workaholic scientist who wants to save the world and a woman who fears nothing but discovering her own destiny find themselves mixed up in a chaotic, on-the-road adventure through Europe. Will they manage to find a middle ground between their opposing ways of life — at least for long enough to complete their mission? And could this trip lead to an unexpected romance?”

The debut issue will feature 1:10 and 1:25 incentive copy variant covers showcasing the talent of bestselling artist Mirka Andolfo (Sweet Paprika, Mercy).

Zanfardino and Romboli jointly said of the new series:

A Thing Called Truth is a story full of love — love of cinema, the wind in your hair, new cities yet to be explored, and the brave fire in the eyes of a woman coming into her own. It’s a soul searching story about finding the balance between devoting yourself fully to a goal and being able to enjoy life with no regrets. About the dream of leaving your mark on the world. About the reasons for yearning to go far away—and those that will take you back home. It’s about how you can’t keep running forever, but facing the world gets easier when you find out you’re not alone anymore.”

A Thing Called Truth #1 will be available on Wednesday, November 3rd in print and digitally.
