Image Comics has announced A Thing Called Truth, a new five-issue miniseries coming in November. The series, described as a “high energy road trip adventure,” is written by Iolanda Zanfardino and illustrated by Elisa Romboli. No additional members of the creative team were named in the announcement.
Here’s how Image describes A Thing Called Truth:
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?
A Thing Called Truth is the latest collaboration between Iolanda Zanfardino and Elisa Romboli. The duo have previously worked together on Alice in Leatherland for Black Mask. The final issue of that five-issue miniseries is due out in stores in a few weeks.
In a statement announcing A Thing Called Truth, the creative team elaborated on the themes of the 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,” said Zanfardino and Romboli. “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.”
