We’re looking into including Digital Copies into the online store, due to a high level of demand. These will be much cheaper, available in PDF, and maybe CBR and CBZ formats too. We’ll notify as soon as they go live.
In the meantime, print copies of the comic, including the first two issues of The Pride and the first issue of The Pride Adventures, are available here.
Issue 3 is currently being worked on by Dan Harris, and it looks great, a good quarter of the way through.
Issue 4 is being drawn by Hector Barrios and he’s handing in some amazing work.
Issue 5 is over halfway done by a series of incredible artists.
The Pride Adventures #2 has started production too, and I’ve seen some great art for that one too. More on that to come!
So there’s never been a better time to get in on this great series, and sharing it with your friends!
That’s right, y’all! Some amazing stuff incoming, and some lovely stuff out right now! You should really see how beautiful the first couple issues look. Buy some now to check it all out!
Heading off to Bristol today, for the Bristol Expo, a comic con that’s happening all weekend at the Old Brunel Station on Temple Meads!
I cannot wait! It should be a mega fun time with plenty to see and do, so do come along, say hi and get your copies!
We need your help to keep the comic going, so spread the word and please do get your copies now to avoid disappointment.
Next weekend, we will be at Bristol Expo selling The Pride#1 and The Pride Adventures #1 and also launching The Pride #2!
The convention is at the Old Brunel Station, right by Temple Meads Train Station, and it should be a fun weekend.
Joe Glass, Gavin Mitchell and Kris Carter will all be there, and you can meet the guys and get your copies signed and maybe even some new sketches. They’ll also be pushing their other projects, such as Stiffs and Lou Scannon!
So come along and say hi!
Well, big news! We have sent The Pride Adventures #1 to the printers! The comic will be on sale at Cardiff International Comics Expo on March 2nd-3rd, 2013!
If you cannot make that show, you can order a copy direct with me! I’m currently looking into if and how I can set up a shop function on the Facebook Page. In the meantime, you can send payments to PayPal to order your copy.
The issue costs £4. If postage is required, add £1 for within the UK (up to five copies), and £2 for outside the UK (up to five copies). Send us a message on here or on the Facebook page for the PayPal address to send to.
Comics will be sent out at the beginning of March. Please order your copy ASAP to avoid disappointment, and reblog this to spread the word. Thanks all!
What, because they have gay and lesbian characters they can’t have a trans one? Like there’s a quota on equal representation?
So they come up with a great plot line about a type of person that is next to never shown on national/international TV and they’re to go, “Oh, but we hit our Queer Quota with that lesbian kiss three episodes ago…ah, dang it, let’s just mae him a darn-tootin’ All-American white dude, dagnabbit!”?
Seriously, if gay and lesbians are seeing a much greater acceptance in the media and the world at large, then Trans people are becoming the new Gay: what’s worse, they often get treated as such by those within their own community too.
And to anyone who deplores it as ‘political correctness gone mad’ or ‘United Colors of Beneton’, seriously, wtf, equal representation means equal representation. How many other shows are 98% white men? So even if Glee wound up with a character representing every single minority, character type, trait, illness, disability, sexuality or whatever under the rainbow, we shouldn’t have a problem with it. As long as the story works with that, the drama is good, and in this case the songs are great, what does it matter?
So get over yourself, they want a Trans character, they can damn well have a Trans character.
Oh, and P.S. I’m pretty certain the kid playing that character is Trans, if I heard correctly about the Glee Project thing (admittedly, could be wrong, I never watched it)
Or know someone great who is and does, I would appreciate hearing from you. Just a short bio on your work, and a link, if you have one, would be lovely.
It’s for something cool, but I don’t want to give away too much yet, while we are still in the very early stages. No one will be solicited or anything like that, no lists are being made up for any reason, just trying to get a good sense of who is making comics that is lgbtq. Webcomics, mini-comics, whatever, it’s all good.
I dunno why, but I can never reply on Gail Simone’s posts. So I’m hoping if I reblog it she’ll see this.
My name is Joe Glass, and I write an LGBTQ superhero team comic called The Pride, which so far has seen an Early Edition release of the first issue. The publisher, Deadstar Publishing, will be starting the series in the new year.
This is my first comic being released, and my previous published work includes magazine articles for Gay Times (GT) in the UK, including an article I interviewed you for on Gays in Comics.
The Pride is written by myself, featuring art by Gavin Mitchell, Kris Carter, Kris Anka, Ryan Cody, Cory Smith, Jack Lawrence and many more.
