A blog centered on the sci-fi romance genre has given Flesh Machine a SFR Galaxy Award for Best Sci-fi Romance Webcomic of 2016!
They award five sci-fi romance pieces published each year. Usually they stick to books, but occasionally comics or movies are recognized.
What they wrote about Flesh Machine is below. ("HEA" is short for "Happily Ever After".)
"Best Sci-Fi Romance Webcomic
Michael Avolio's Flesh Machine's is still in progress as of this writing, and at this point there's no guarantee of an HEA between the hero and heroine, but I still love it and am glad I discovered it.
The story takes place on far-future, non-Earth worlds and features an interracial couple: Lucy Olmos, a mechanic-turned-fighter pilot, and Seiji Dequier, a brigadier in the Interplanetary Watch. They team up to battle guerrillas who are making life dangerous for innocent civilians.
Lucy and Seiji’s courtship is so sweet and tender it'll melt in your mouth. A certain plot twist throws their burgeoning relationship into forbidden romance territory. The love scenes are artfully depicted and include lots of sensuous detail. My favorite parts are the times Lucy and Seiji look at each other with love and affection.
Flesh Machine updates Tuesdays and is free to read. Interested readers can help support Michael Avolio's work by donating to his Mutineer Studio."
I'll post new pages of Flesh Machine this evening at michaelavolio.com, where you can read the whole story so far for free.
Thanks for reading!
