Gay guys love superheroes. And why wouldn't they? These larger-than-life creations usually come complete with bulging muscles, skintight spandex and...capes! So it makes sense for gay followers to have their very own convention that celebrates LGBT and LGBT-friendly comic books and honors science fiction, fantasy and horror writers, artists and creators. Kinda like Comic-Con for queers! Bent-Con is the place where producers of these colorful publications for gay audiences can meet, greet and geek out! On December 3 and 4, at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles, fans and fellow fantasy addicts can enjoy a weekend filled with exhibitors, guests, panels, screenings and parties. Highlights include a get-together of the Battlestar Galactica Fan Club; a showing of classic erotic art from the Tom of Finland Foundation; and an appearance from Class Comics, which has a new book from German publisher Bruno Gmünder. Artist-creator Patrick Fillion and co-publisher-writer Robert Fraser will be on hand to sign Heroes With Hardons: The Big Book of Class Comics, an anthology hardcover in which the superheroes are "not only masculine, strong and fearless, they also have superpowers between their muscular legs." Sounds hot, even for cartoon characters! For more information on the book, visit And for more on the weekend of events, go to
