IDW Publishing will release Heartbreakers Meet Boilerplate, a 6" x 8.5", 104-page digest-sized comic in June.

Here's how IDW describes the book:

"The Heartbreakers, everyone's favorite female action-hero clones, team with the world-famous 19th-century robot known as Boilerplate in a science-fiction adventure that will please old fans and gain legions of new readers as well.

"When Boilerplate, lost since World War I, is found and reassembled by the Heartbreakers, robot love quickly blooms with their android, Femiquin 44. But all is not sweetness and light, as rogue researchers from Biovoc, the Heartbreaker' former corporate owner and nemesis, set their sights on dismantling the mechanical man to discover the valuable technology hidden inside."

Heartbreakers Meet Boilerplate features a new art style developed by artist and Boilerplate creator Paul Guinan. His technique, know as "paintography," combines drawing, painting, and photography, enhanced by printing in rich brown ink, to achieve a unique look.

"Other comics have used photo-based art, but so far it's always looked clunky," Guinan said "I wanted to find a way of truly integrating the different media and giving it a more cohesive look‹and I did it! I kind of surprised myself, in fact."

Heartbreakers creator/writer Anina Bennett writes the tale, and also pulls double-duty by appearing as the heroines themselves. "Iım secretly a big ham," she said, "so this is a great way to satisfy my acting jones. The only tricky part is pulling off some of the action poses. Try holding still for the camera while you're being blown through the air by an explosion or throwing a roundhouse kick!"

Heartbreakers Meet Boilerplate intersperses a 73-page story with historical background on Boilerplate, including period photos.
