Kaptara: Will and Grace in Space
Expecting a gay action hero cruising through the galaxy.
Instead I got Will and Grace in space.
He's also lazy and a major coward.
His ship goes through a space warp. Separated from the rest of the crew, he ends up in the faux-Medieval kingdom of Endom on the planet Kaptara, where all the men dress like Conan the Barbarian and don't mind being drooled over by screaming queens.
En route they join forces with She-La, famed tracker and hunter; Melvon the Wizard, who lives in the Unchanted Forest; and Laurette from the original crew, who has become an insect-person.
They never get around to finding Skullthor, at least not in the first volume, but they have lots of picaresque adventures on the strange alien planet.
But I would prefer a gay hero who isn't a throwback to the screaming queens of yesteryear.
