Friends is obviously the greatest sitcom of all time. While that’s not a debate I’ll be starting here, it’s very apparent how much Friends has been able to stand the test of time. With a streaming lull, and no reboot in sight, Image Comics might have just the thing for fans looking for something similar.
Revealed earlier today by The Hollywood Reporter, Getting It Together is a diverse dramedy that brings Friends into the modern world. The story comes from the minds of Sina Grace (Ghosted In L.A.) and host of the Dreamer comics podcast Omar Saphi. Illustrator Jenny D. Fine, colorist Mx. Struble, and letterer Sean Konot round out the creative team. Grace said that he hopes thr book will, “show how modern friendships survive in the era of open relationships, online dating, mental health awareness, and so on.”
Here is the initial synopsis: “Getting It Together follows best friends Sam and Jack. Sam is dating Lauren—Jack’s indie rocker sister and roommate—and when Sam and Lauren open up their long-term relationship, skyrocketing tensions send social shockwaves through their friend group and the entire Bay Area. And Jack, caught in the middle of it all, may be forced to take sides in a conflict he never wanted to be a part of. Life gets pretty messy when you’re in your ’20s and your friends are your family.”
