Gage and Hayden continue their perilous journey together through the zombie filled infected zone in order to get far enough away to bang each other in relative safely.
The lads receive mysterious assistance from an unknown collaborator that might be helping them along, or might be sending them to certain death. Unfortunately in times like this, there’s only one way to find out.Their designated detour brings them to the source of the outbreak, but at the same time lands them in a mad man’s lecherous hands.
Sadly only one of our sexy travelers makes it to a local airstrip and discovers the bigger picture of the undead epidemic. But that doesn’t mean he’s reached a place of safety quite yet! By the end of this comic both Gage and Hayden might have joined the undead!
With the recent zombie craze it can’t be a surprise that Class Comics jumped on the bandwagon. However, the story in Beautiful Dead, both this new issue and the first one, aren’t like what you’ve seen in The Walking Dead or Z Nation or any other zombie show or movie. Robert Fraser made it unique. The art by Butch McLogic, though different from normal comic art, is pretty fantastic.
In the first book Gage and Hayden meet up as the zombie apocalypse breaks out. Despite hot sex, they’re an unlikely duo but end up being well-suited to helping each other survive.
The second issue starts with the guys having a hot romp in a car which is interrupted by a herd of undead. They are led by a mysterious somebody who tells them where to go via electronic means such as billboards. Yeah, don’t look for logic here, just go with it. Hayden and Gage end up at a scientific facility where they learn that testing to enhance sexual prowess led to the outbreak.
There’s a lot of action here as well as some problems in their relationship, which they get over in time to have a hot screw over a horde of monsters.
There’s some very good characterization here alongside the wild sex. In the end the boys fly off into the sunset but that doesn’t mean it’s the end.
Note: Beautiful Dead is only available at the Class Comics website.
