Fan-Favorite Merry Men To Be Released This December
Merry Men is out of the forest and into bookstores! The fan-favorite adventure written by Lambda Literary Award Winner and hit cult writer, Robert Rodi (Closet Case) with illustrations by Jackie Lewis (The Lion of Rora) and colors by Marissa Louise (Escape from New York) and Shari Chankhamma (Codename: Baboushka), hits shelves December 5th.
Thirteenth century England. Robert Godwinson, former lover of King Richard, lives with his band of Merry Men in Sherwood Forest, away from the watchful eye of Prince John, who has outlawed homosexuality. Though isolated, the men live in peace—that is, until a stranger enters their camp seeking aid for a nearby town besieged by the Sheriff of Nottingham. Robert—nicknamed Robin—is reluctant to help, but equally eager to get rid of this perplexing stranger… and to put his formidable bow-and-arrow to use. It’s Robin Hood like you’ve never seen him before, based on scholarly speculation about what’s really behind the outlaw’s legend.
Praise for Merry Men:
“Whether or not the original tales of Robin Hood actually have such roots, this is a perfect 21st-century take that works as both a slash fiction romp and an appropriate allegory for the legislative and religious battles the LGBTQ community faces today.” – Mental Floss
“A clever take on an old legend.” – Multiversity Comics
“Has all the thrilling heroics and swashbuckling of an Errol Flynn (Not a Russell Crowe or Kevin Costner) film with a fun cast of gay, bi, and trans characters, who have different body types and attitudes to the world around him.” – Graphic Policy
