The Sweetness is a brand new, promisingly strange comic coming from Z2 Comics in June. Written and illustrated by the husband and wife creative team of Lasko-Gross, The Sweetness is about two intergalactic drug smugglers catering to the odd tastes of alien drug addicts. It is the first book written by YALSA-nominated writer/artist Miss Lasko-Gross and Eisner-award nominated cartoonist Kevin Colden working together.
The book comes out in June. The order code for The Sweetness #1 is APR162173.
Set in the future, the first collaboration from the married creative team of Lasko-Gross and Colden follows two badass female intergalactic smugglers catering to the unique tastes of Alien drug addicts with a mysterious controlled substance. Due out in June from Z2 Comics, THE SWEETNESS reads like an old-school Vertigo book packed with fun-loving adventure.
In The Sweetness, Miss and Kevin have crafted characters and storylines that are effortlessly feminist in ways other popular comics play lip service to but don’t quite land.“I want people to be excited about a badass space smuggler story and fall in love with the characters,” says Miss
Lasko-Gross. “I hope readers are sucked into the story by the surreal moments of twisted humor and surprise.”
