A sinister and sexy five-issue miniseries, Sins of the Black Flamingo by critically acclaimed writer Andrew Wheeler (DCâ€™s JLQ, Marvel Voices: Pride) and superstar DC Comics artist Travis Moore (Wonder Woman, Nightwing, Superman: Son of Kal-El) will launch from Image Comics in June for Pride Month 2022.
With colors by Tamra Bonvillain (Wonder Woman, Crush & Lobo) and lettering by Aditya Bidikar (Arkham City: The Order of the World, John Constantine: Hellblazer), Sins of the Black Flamingo not only boasts one of the strongest creative lineups of the year, it’s also one of the few American comic books from an all-queer creative team.
“Positive representation is vitally important,” said Wheeler. “But we also need complicated, messy, queer anti-heroes, and the Black Flamingo is messy as f*ck!”
Occult Noir. Miami Sleaze. In Sins of the Black Flamingo, Sebastian Harlow is the eponymous Black Flamingo, a flamboyant and narcissistic thief who gets his kicks stealing mystic artifacts from the wealthy and corrupt of Miamiâ€™s occult underground. But when his latest job leads him to his biggest score so far, the hedonistic outlaw discovers something he wasnâ€™t looking forâ€”something to believe in.
Wheeler added: “With Sins of the Black Flamingo I want to introduce readers to a glamorous, tawdry world of dark secrets and queer spectacle that’s unlike anything they’ve experienced before. Thanks to the incredible talents of Travis, Tamra, and Aditya, I think that’s exactly what readers are going to get! These artists are the best in the business, and I’m so proud to be working with them!”
