JC Etheredge has played around with the idea of superheroes in this colourful, delicately coloured book filled with characters whose parts are not so delicate, and squeezed into shiny gear. Every page is eye-catching and it has a palpable erotic charge, with a wonderful texture that most comics don't quite get. In a sense it feels quite childish in its focus on men and boys in tights and silly scenarios elaborated over two or three pages, with certain recurrent characters, but this is all part of its charm and you have little desire to resist it. As Patrick Fillion says in the introduction, a large part of it is the fact that these characters don't have any sense of how sexy they are. It's gay escapism at its best!
