Virtually Yours–The first dating app that has nothing to do with actually dating

August 1, 2020

In this episode, writer Jeremy Holt and artist Elizabeth Beals talk about the new comic, “Virtually Yours,” which you can get exclusively on ComiXology Originals. We talk all about the amazing characters and the many changes the title went through to become what it is today, as well as the message behind the story.

 

Career-minded Eva Estrella is tired of her family asking when she’s going to settle down. Why won’t they stop nagging her? New York City is a big place! Sure it’s easy to meet people, but you try finding "the one" in a city of 8 million! Besides, Eva doesn’t want a distraction from her goal of finding a dream job in journalism. So Eva joins Virtually Yours, a virtual dating app that provides all the proof of being in a relationship—without actually being in one.

 

And then there’s Max Kittridge. He might be a former child star, but right now he’s in the middle of a divorce and going through the motions. Max takes a gig at Virtually Yours creating, what becomes, a highly sought-after profile, making him a top performer at the company. As they navigate their current circumstances, both Eva and Max find that sometimes what you're looking for is right in front of you.
