DailyIndieComics’ New Year Countdown: Favorite New Comics of 2016!
Day 1: The Backstagers
The Backstagers was one of our favorite comics this year, a comic full of colorful pages, interesting characters, and a touch of mystery! The Backstagers also has some amazing LGBT representation and great character interactions. It follows the story of Jory, a boy that transfers into an all-boys private school and joins the stage crew. To his surprise, being part of the stage crew doesn’t just mean working on scenery and getting props, it also means discovering a brand new magical world behind the curtains… literally. The Backstagers is a fun story of finding a place where you belong and the adventures you have along the way.
Castiel is the local private high schools bad boy, with an overbearing religious mother. Castiel is pretty sick of everything right now, his mother, his school and his town’s over zealous bigot church. He doesn’t care about anyone except himself and his brother Gabriel. Then Cas meets Dean. Dean’s a shy nerdy kid who Cas can’t seem to keep his mind off of and Dean finds his way into Castiel’s heart and past the walls that he has built so carefully over the years.
