MCM Expo Debut: Spandex #5

Spandex Special info

Before X-Men were married, before Kevin Keller came out, before Batwoman looked at Maggie Sawyer in a quizzical fashion, there was Spandex. Martin Eden's gay superhero comic book that led a trailblaze in getting mainstream media attention.

And five years after that we get a fifth and final issue, giant sized with 52 pages and five variant covers, by the likes of Jeffrey Brown, Warwick Johnson Cadwell, Nigel Dobbyn and T'Sao Wei.

The Special's story sees a brand new team taking the 'Spandex' name – but how will they fare in the supervillain-filled streets of Brighton? And where are the old team-members? Plus, Martin promises answers to a lot of the series' questions, and yet another massive twist.

The comic will continue as a webcomic, Spandex Strips, as well as revisiting his classic O Men comic. Spandex #5 will debut at MCM London Expo next weekend and will also be on sale at Comiket and Thought Bubble.
