Love Everlasting is an epic, mind-blowing tale of hope, death, and rebirth set in a world as frighteningly fantastical as any found beyond the stars or after the apocalypse: The Romance Comics of the 50s, 60s, and 70s.In this blood rose-tinted reality, Joan Peterson slowly discovers that she is trapped in a seemingly endless cycle—a problem to be solved, a man to marry—and every time she makes it, falls in love, kisses him, she disappears into another teary saga. She needs to find her way out, find who she is, what this world is. To escape, she must deconstruct her stories and reconstruct her identity.Romance comics sold millions of copies. They are a reflection of America’s ongoing obsession with finding the happy, nice, right utopia to which we all might conform.This comic is an examination of the perversity of this obsession, of the damage done, the hearts broken, the lives lost in pursuit of the beautifully impossible: of love everlasting. This is not just a mystery to be solved; it is an ongoing adventure, an exploration of the need for love. As Watchmen did for superheroes and Sandman did for horror, Love Everlasting will use the tropes of romance to explore the heart of humanity.
