    Story and art by Howard Cruse.

    Originally published in The Advocate during the 1980s, Howard Cruse's Wendel is widely considered the first gay comic strip to be featured in mainstream media. A topical and heartfelt chronicle of one gay man's journey through the often-rocky Reagan/Bush years, the strip followed the adventures of Wendel Trupstock, his boyfriend Ollie, and an unforgettable cast of supporting characters presented in realistic depictions of relationships, politics, personal struggles, and public triumphs.

    The Complete Wendel contains every episode of the series and includes a new foreword by Cruse, who contextualizes the story of the creation and publication of the strip within the often tumultuous political zeitgeist of the 1980s.
