Lets get trashy, and tragic, and maybe even a little epic now and then. We’ve got garden variety queers, queers with super powers, queers with secret agendas, pretty boys, closet cases, and heartthrob heroes all trying to find their way in very complicated worlds.

Glimpse into a future on fire. Things are worse than predicted, way worse. The whole planet burns in a swelter caused by greed and ignorance. Petty, repressive regimes dot the globe. Lambda, freedom fighter and libertine, aims to be a perpetual thorn in the side of Kind Donald III who rules a large swath of North America. He frees the enslaved, and tries to, as best he can, simply live to fight another day.

Glimpse into another future, silently drowning. Offering a time of unprecedented order and prosperity, the Middle Kingdom now spans the entire globe. The elite Pax Sinica Corps is the bedrock on which this rigid social order rests. Lambda, hero of the people, serves the Child of Heaven, the rightful sovereign of all lands under the Heavens.

And in the here and now, meet Sid whose steps and missteps pave the way for these possible futures. Which is real? Which does he choose? How can one cute gayboy working in a dive bar be the catalyst for global change?

Lavender Menace is written and illustrated by Edward Ficklin.
