The AIDS epidemic hit in the 1980s and has since taken the lives of millions all over the world. A disrespector of class or creed, the disease has cut down some of our brightest lights, just a swiftly as it swept through the poor, misunderstood and forgotten. “Invisible Man” is a tribute to the Queen song of the same name, as well as to the nameless and faceless who suffer as much victims of social ignorance as from this terrible disease.
The most dramatic story in this collection, “Invisible Man” is the fifth story in KILLER QUEEN, A COMIC ANTHOLOGY inspired by the discography of Queen. Story by James M. Calrk; art by Alex Cormack. This story will be included in our print collection, due for release October 8th. The digital version is available to download right now in our online store and also features a BONUS PAGE from “Lazy Sunday”, a KILLER QUEEN mini-series from Josh Hechinger and Cliodhna Ztoical!
