Nominated for Outstanding Comic by the GLAAD Media Awards, Liebestrasse tells the heart-wrenching, poignant tale of forbidden love and survival through the rise of hatred.
During the final years of the Weimar Republic, Sam, an American banker, meets Philip, a German art critic, and they fall in love. Their romance is hit with an unspeakable reality as the Nazis come to power and fascism makes them a target.
Debut writer Greg Lockard (Where We Live Las Vegas Shooting Benefit Anthology
) and artist Tim Fish (Saved by the Bell, Cavalcade of Boys
) prove that even through the harshest conditions, love will find a way to thrive.
2020 GLAAD MEDIA NOMINEE FOR OUTSTANDING COMIC "Liebestrasse
feels like an extremely needed graphic novel that has a lot of lessons that are still relevant and timely today."-PRIDE
"The real strength of Liebestrasse
it's a simple and quiet period piece that starkly juxtaposes our current political climate, while also being eerily similar in ways that are all too easy to forget. These parallels are not an explicit part of the story, but they don't have to be--the bare facts of the reality faced by these queer men makes their story even more frighteningly relevant."-Boing Boing
