The LengthsEddie isn't your typical comic book hero. Sure, he has a double life, but he's struggling to save himself let alone the rest of the world. By night... and day... he's working like a dog, and in between he's trying to manage a new romance with an old friend. But things have changed since they last saw each other at art school two years ago.

What started as a mild flirtation in the gym has transformed Eddie into a sexually adventurous and morally liberated male escort living in a world of sex, drugs and unrequited love.

It's not exactly first date talk.

The Lengths is a new comic from former Brentford resident artist and writer Howard Hardiman. Drawn from extensive interviews with real sex-workers in the city, The Lengths is a quirky, uncompromising but ultimately sympathetic take on the oldest profession in the world. You thought being a male escort is a dog's life? Think again.

The Lengths is available in comics shops across the UK and available from with new issues released every two months commencing May 18th 2011. Howard can also be followed on twitter @cutebutsad and will be appearing at the London Movies Comics and Magazines Expo at the ExCel Centre from the 26th to the 28th of May
