Gay Heroes Hunt Down a Homophobic Killer in Queer Comics ‘Trance’

Trance

A new comic is in town, and it’s as gay as it can possibly be!

‘Trance’, is a gay comic series created and written by Joey Capuana, illustrated by Pablo Collar, colored by Julio Rojas, and published by Scout Comics. It is a mix of suspense, mystery, adventure, and of course, a lot of gay stuff! It centers on a nightclub in Savannah, Georgia secretly run by a group of powerful queer witches. The nightclub, named “Trance” (hence the comic title), is “a queer hotspot beloved for heavy pours, sexy gogo dancers, and drag shows.” However, a homophobic serial killer starts murdering queers using a gay hookup app. Altar, the main character, becomes worried when their longtime lover suddenly disappears. Gifted in the art of tomes and the occult, Altar and their witch gang become unlikely detectives, clashing with law enforcement (police and witch law officers alike) only to discover that they are up against something eviler and more powerful.

In an exclusive interview with Queerty, author Joey Capuana said that ‘Trance’ came out of his fascination with magic and the supernatural, especially after meeting queer people who identified as witches, practicing spells and tarot, and believing in astrology. While the queer community is big fans of supernatural stories, he said that they “tend to borrow [from these stories] while often not including any actual gay character.” To address this, he said he “wanted to create a fantasy world […] but one which fully centered on an entirely queer cast, enmeshed in queer culture.”

Does the comic shy away from sex? Absolutely not. Capuana said that sex is central in the story, considering that the killer uses online hook-ups to meet his victims. And so… you can expect a lot of sexy stuff in it!

 

‘Trance’ finally hits shelves this June, just in time for Pride Month! Grab a copy on Scout Comics.
