Gay Superhero Squad Takes Flight in ‘Spandex’
Get ready for a superhero story like no other.
(Cue the classic Superfriends theme song.)
Liberty– The glamorous transvestite
Mr. Muscles & Butch– Rock hard twins
Diva– Lesbian powerhouse
Indigo– The terrific teleporter
Glitter– Lord of light
Prowler– The gay ability guru
Together, they form the most fabulous superhero squad to hit the super-powered scene – Spandex!
Writer and artist Martin Eden took the indie comics community by storm with his self-published superhero story featuring the adventures of the world’s first all-gay super-team and issues 1 -3 will be available as a single collection when Titan Books’ Spandex: Fast and Hard hits June 19.
“There aren’t many gay superheroes around, and there’s never been an all-gay super-team – until now!” Eden says. “This comic has been a labor of love for me – it’s fun and experimental, and I’m really excited about taking the characters and the comic to a much wider audience.”
You don’t need x-ray vision to see Eden’s passion in every page of Spandex. Filled with humor, drama (they are gay superheroes after all), and plenty of action, the adventures of the Brighton-based superhero team are a fun romp through the tights and flights genre.
Follow Spandex as they take on a 50-foot lesbian, battle pink ninjas, and tackle their own complicated love lives.
