Chelsea Boys is the first collection of Glen Hanson and Allan Neuwirth’s popular syndicated comic strip that appears in magazines, newspapers, and websites throughout the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. The strip follows the often outrageous antics, wild sexcapades, and everyday heartbreaks of three gay roommates, as different as can be from one another, living together in a three bedroom apartment in the heart of New York’s trendy Chelsea neighborhood: cuddly Nathan, a short, neurotic forty-something native New Yorker; gorgeous, buff Sky, a naive yet deeply spiritual art student raised on a farming commune in Canada; and the fabulous black club diva Soirée, who masks his inner pain with a rapier wit and outrageous style. Filled with humor, humanity, and wry observations on life in a modern setting, Chelsea Boys presents a family you’ve never seen before, and storytelling that speaks the truth rather than playing to stereotypes.

Even though I discovered this book only recently I still love the takes on DADT, gay marriage, and other issues that the gay community deals with. I bought the second book and loved it too. Totally worth having on your shelf and reading over and over.

Can't wait to start reading it.

I really liked this. I enjoyed the artwork, but I have not gone back to re-read it. Maybe I will this weekend.

I have always wondered why there are so few really good, funny well drawn gay comics out there. Gay men are such talented people and have a wide varity of interests..why isn't that reflected in comics? CHELSEA BOYS has everything- lust, wonder, humanity, truth, and humor, in a perfectly sweet package.
I can't choose a favorite character, it's the great combo of all of them that makes this cartoon always exciting and fresh.
I was very pleased to find on the development of the boys and the different drawing styles of the bodies. Mr Hanson is a true talent and never boring with the way all the character are rendered. There are so many nuances with the humor, facial expressions, and the body language. The subject matter is also non-typical (thank god!) of other gay comics, always dealt with in the best way possible: with good humor. I'm sure some of the antics are based on actual incidents, like the sexy leatherman buglary? Or the Pride day lesbian/gay man sex romp? Truth is stranger than fiction!
This by far is the best collection I've ever owned...and the price is a steal.

Chelsea Boys is a bi-monthly strip that most readers wish was daily. It always sparkles with wit, even when the authors are steaming about an injustice or the prejudices hidden within seemingly benign attitudes. The strips are always funny but the characters aren't just caracatures. They have depths and heart and contradictions just like real people. Glen's artwork always pleases the eye, and the chance to just sit and wallow in a bookload of the strips, rather than parsing out the pleasure in two minute doses every two weeks, is a glutton's delight. I recommend this book highly, not only to gay readers, but to everyone who loves to laugh. That a little wisdom comes with the laughs won't bother you.

A compilation of the "Chelsea Boys" comic strip series that appears in many gay papers and online. The boys are familiar characters in gay comics, and in fact, the same trio, dumpy everyman, buffed innocent, and sassy snap-queen previously appeared in Jerry Mills' "Poppers." But Hanson and Neuwirth move beyond the gag-a-month format to add a complexity to the characters, giving them back stories and crises, making them fragile, multidimensional, and likeable.
Overall, this is a pleasant diversion, deserving a place on the shelf next to Allison Bechtel's "Dykes to Watch Out For" and the opus of Howard Cruise.
Asher
Neuwirth and Hanson use the lighthearted medium of a comic strip to deliver deeper and more serious messages about the reality of being a modern gay man. Every strip has a lesson to ponder and the authors smash sterotypes wide open. Ironic indeed that the strip is named Chelsea Boys given the author's overwhelming proven point that sterotypes are rather silly given the fact that noone indeed ever lives up to the expected ideal.

Neuwirth and Hanson add a work of great relivance and importance to the cannon of gay literature. This is a must have for every gay man's libray! A great gift for friends too!
I must confess- I didn't follow the chelsea boys saga before I got this Book; Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down!
I caught myself Laughing out loud late at night like a lunatic.
The characters are beautifully illustrated and developed. I feel like my friends and I have traits from all the characters, Which makes it more fun, sometimes scary.
To ME is like a GAY- SEX AND THE CITY.
KUDOS to Glenn and Allan's talent.
I Can't wait for this wonder duo's new book.
Again, this one is a perfect gift for any Occasion (Im getting a few books for those last minute emergency gifts)
Buy this book and give it away, anyone could use a bit of laughter this days.
