Joe Glass Relaunches The Pride for ComiXology Originals, and Pride Month

Joe Glass, a former Bleeding Cool reporter, has relaunched his comic book superhero series The Pride as a digital-only series under the ComiXology Originals banner. and launching on Wednesday. This is clearly why he was so full of beans at MCM London Comic Con a weekend ago but couldn’t say anything.

And it’s just in time for Pride month. The Pride is a superhero comic full of as many divergent sexualities of character as you can fit. Self-published by Welsh creator Joe Glass, with the hardcover collection funded by Kickstarter, it has been a strong seller for ComiXology – and now is the only place you’ll be able to read it, for its second series.

The Pride: Fame Monster is written by Glass, drawn by Cem Iroz, coloured by Mark Dale, and lettered by Mike Stock. Alongside this release, ComiXology will also run collections of the previous series, The Pride Season One and The Pride Adventures.

Here is a synopsis of the series – and the solicitations for the entire second season.

Have you ever been sick of being misrepresented? Of having no one like you to look up to? Have you ever wanted to change everything? Well, FabMan has. In a world populated by superpowers, the superhero is common. Sadly for FabMan (Tomorrow’s Fabulous Man, Today), he feels a deep schism in the representation of his community, his own heroic exploits being presented as the daily fluff piece in the news. Wanting to fight for change, he forms PRIDE, the world’s premier LGBTQ supergroup. Not exactly receiving the desired response, the group faces opposition, derision and more. But after a serious trial by fire, the team find themselves the only super team in the world capable of stopping a villainous mastermind’s diabolical plot for world domination. Join FabMan, Wolf, Muscle Mary, Frost, Twink, Bear, Angel and White Trash on their mission to help people and improve LGBT representation in the process.
