In the distant future, all is not well in Gateway City. Tensions grip society. People are discriminated against because of race, gender, sexual orientation. Politicians run amok, playing their constituents for fools. The authorities have their hands full and cannot keep up with the crime wave sweeping across town. To make matters worse, the GUARDIANS OF THE CUBE have disbanded. Who will stand up for the people?
At the heart of this civil unrest, the supervillain group “MEAN STREAK” has broken out of prison. Career criminals all, MAMMA RIES, the BREEDER, the PRICK, JACK THE STRIPPER, LIGHTE BRIGHTE and JON DAZY are up to their old tricks but BYRON DURAND, aka the all-new NAKED JUSTICE intends to stop them. One against six isn’t great odds, but Naked Justice isn’t alone. Soon he and DEVILHOUND, the city’s most misunderstood adventurer, are forced to battle for their very lives.
Meanwhile, mysterious newcomer RED VELVET is assembling some of the city’s most powerful street heroes to lend NJ and Devilhound a much needed hand. GOLDEN BOY, BULLET and LEGEND rush into the fray hoping to even the odds.
Unbeknownst to these heroes on the verge of forming the all-new super team called “the BRIGAYDE”, a new menace begins to manifest itself in Penny, Iowa. A veritable war on homosexuality is brewing, and soon, no gay person will be safe from REVEREND FREELY and his band of Followers.
The BRIGAYDE is written by Patrick Fillion and stunningly illustrated by David Cantero.
Imagine a gay version of the Avengers where the heroes are kicking and kissing ass. Fighting and fucking. The Brigayde is Class Comics take on such super hero teams like the Avengers and Justice League.
The story starts with the evil Reverend Freely and his Followers starting a war in homosexuality, then cuts to Naked Justice, the former Space Cadet, in Gateway City taking on a new group of colorful villains. Of course he does battle while sporting a massive erection. He gets into a bad spot but shooting energy from his schlong takes out the bad guy.
The actions cuts to a sexy ginger who goes by the name Red Velvet as he brings a diverse group of heroes together. My favorite is Bullet and African American midget who can move so fast he can fill a man in both ends at basically the same time. Along with several other super powered, mostly naked guys Red Velvet and Bullet help Naked Justice who, despite help from Devilhound, is in a bad spot.
The good guys win of course and afterward there’s a massive orgy. David Cantero’s art is awesome for all the action—naked and otherwise.
I’ve read a lot of books by Class Comics but there were some characters I wasn’t aware of. No worries, because at the back of the book are biographies on all of our well-endowed super heroes.
Since this is the first issue of a new series Brigayde would be a great jumping on point for readers.
Note: The Brigayde is only available at the Class Comics website.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
