He lived fast, died young, and left a good-looking (if a bit bloody) corpse—not to mention an incredible wealth of poetry and an immortal reputation for romance. He was the 6th Baron Byron of Rochdale, better known as Lord Byron—the original bad boy of British literature.
She is a 24-year-old computer genius with a serious fixation on old authors—Lord Byron in particular. Her name is Alexia Ryan, and her singular upbringing has molded her into the perfect coder to bring the struggling New Romancer dating site into the big leagues. But like a modern-day Prometheus, Lexy’s revolutionary software is built with stolen parts—and bringing it to life will have some very unintended consequences.
To wit: a reanimated Lord Byron, suave and randy as ever, walking the streets of Silicon Valley some 200 years after his celebrated death. Will Lexy find a new love for the ages with this preternatural poet? Or will the forces she has unwittingly unleashed consign them both to the ash-heap of history?
Comics legend Peter Milligan and acclaimed artist Brett Parson take up Cupid’s bow in NEW ROMANCERS, a Digital Age bodice-ripper for the hopeless romantic in all of us!
