28 PAGES – FULL COLOR FILLION VARIANT COVER PRINT EDITION
In the distant future, all is not well in Gateway City. Tensions grip society. People are discriminated against because of race, gender, sexual orientation. Politicians run amok, playing their constituents for fools. The authorities have their hands full and cannot keep up with the crime wave sweeping across town. To make matters worse, the GUARDIANS OF THE CUBE have disbanded. Who will stand up for the people?
At the heart of this civil unrest, the supervillain group “MEAN STREAK” has broken out of prison. Career criminals all, MAMMA RIES, the BREEDER, the PRICK, JACK THE STRIPPER, LIGHTE BRIGHTE and JON DAZY are up to their old tricks but BYRON DURAND, aka the all-new NAKED JUSTICE intends to stop them. One against six isn’t great odds, but Naked Justice isn’t alone. Soon he and DEVILHOUND, the city’s most misunderstood adventurer, are forced to battle for their very lives.
Meanwhile, mysterious newcomer RED VELVET is assembling some of the city’s most powerful street heroes to lend NJ and Devilhound a much needed hand. GOLDEN BOY, BULLET and LEGEND rush into the fray hoping to even the odds.
Unbeknownst to these heroes on the verge of forming the all-new super team called “the BRIGAYDE”, a new menace begins to manifest itself in Penny, Iowa. A veritable war on homosexuality is brewing, and soon, no gay person will be safe from REVEREND FREELY and his band of Followers.
The BRIGAYDE is written by Patrick Fillion and stunningly illustrated by David Cantero.
