Editorial Reviews

"Fish's stories in Cavalcade of Boys really ring true-both to gay and straight readers alike. These are stories about love, and desire, and betrayal, and friendship. In other words, things that we've all experienced. In many ways, it's a long-running soap opera, with the occasional happy ending for two characters but otherwise it's the continual arrival of new obstacles and conflicts to keep things interesting. This is the sort of series that sneaks up on you; by the time you've finished one volume, you're desperate for the next."

"Fish's style is an odd mix, reminding me at times of Archie Comics or the work of Blue Monday's Chynna Clugston-Major and at other times like John Byrne or Erik Larsen, on the other end of the artistic spectrum. His stories, meanwhile, are reminiscent of the work I've read from Los Bros. Hernandez, a series of vignettes that unite to tell the larger story of a decent-sized cast. Cavalcade of Boys is focused more on the love lives of gay men than it is on their sex lives, although several of Fish's characters have a plenty healthy sexual appetite. For those seeking the comic-book equivalent of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy or Will & Grace, you should probably look elsewhere, as Cavalcade is less flashy and considerably more honest than that. It's a little more narrowly focused at a gay audience rather than a mainstream audience as a result, but for those interested in gay themes, I'd definitely recommend Cavalcade of Boys, not just for its verisimilitude but for its entertaining stories and attractive artwork."
