Chayne's inspiration for Boy Meets Hero, the graphic novel.

My inspiration for Boy Meets Hero comes from all the super hero comic book characters who have a separate and secret romance in their normal lives. Spider-Man has Mary Jane, Superman has Lois. Dealing with protecting a secret identity for the sake of a loved one has been a common theme for these characters for years.

One day I wondered, "what if a super hero had a same-sex romance?" That hero would not only have one secret to protect, but also the added pressure of keeping his sexual orientation a secret. I've seen gay characters portrayed in comics before such a Northstar from the pages of X-Men & Alpha Flight. However, I haven't really encountered gay characters that have a close and meaningful relationship along the same lines as what Spider-Man and Superman have with their partners.

So I decided to create the tale of a hero who had these two secrets to protect, and thus, Boy Meets Hero was born!

The world in which these characters exist is based on the light-hearted comic books of my youth. I've always loved the adventurous spirit that comics had in the 80's and 90's and so I felt that I wanted to represent that in my story. I want my characters to be fun and really enjoy the colorful world they live in. I also felt it is important to include sensuality in the character's intimate moments by showing that their love-making is a positive experience, neither explicit nor pornographic.

The basic focus of Boy Meets Hero is the positive relationship that Blue Comet has with his boyfriend, Justin, the people in their lives, and the ups and downs they experience along the way... Enjoy!
