Queer comic ‘The Homo Heroes’ saves the day this Pride

Just in time to celebrate Pride Month, The Homo Heroes release Issue #6 of their LGBTQ+, action-packed comic book series.

“Issue 6 of The Homo Heroes, “The Sensational Hunk” is even more suspenseful than the previous five,” says creator Todd Nunes. “We are moving towards the series conclusion, so tensions are high, storylines are charged, and the fight between good and evil — while looking fabulous — has never been more dire.”

The characters Nunes have created are just as larger-than-life as their mainstream superhero counterparts as they fight to keep the streets safe in crime-ridden and glamour-driven Starlight City. They are more than just sidekicks. They aim to save the world while showcasing the gay community as strong, brave, and courageous. They represent the LGBTQ+ community as powerful leaders.

The difference between the Homo Heroes and your run-of-the-mill comic book is that LGBTQ+ lifestyles, names, origins, and costumes, are integrated into the comic books, which includes being the target of homophobia. These are real role models for the modern world — exactly what Reverend Righteous (The Homo Heroes’ nemesis) is so desperately afraid of. 

So, what are you waiting for? Catch up on the all adventures of Pride, Liberty Lez, Back-lash and Drag-O-Licious now!
