Kyle’s Bed and Breakfast is a charming ongoing comic strip that follows the lives of fun-loving characters who reside under one roof in a B&B. Oh, the stories to tell!
There are essentially 5 main characters of the series. Brad Steele is the beefy minor league baseball stud who is trying to break into the major leagues. The Long Island native works as the handyman for the B&B. The 20-something-year-old is newly out only to the housemates as he contempts to come to terms with his sexuality.
Next is the advertising executive Lance Powers who resides at the B&B thanks to his latest promotion that uplifted him from Los Angeles to Long Island, New York. The high-power exec is known to close deals in the bedroom just as much as in the boardroom. There’s a lot going on with this strikingly handsome chocolate Adonis who seems to be taken a chance at love.
Resident Richard Rubin is a rambunctious character. The mid-to-late 20-year-old party animal who candlelights as a part-time club DJ is known to stir up trouble by just entering a room. You can’t expect anything less from this full-time Gossip and Fashion Plate. Yet he did have a romance that kept him calm for a while until it ended and now Rubin is back to his old party ways.
Eduardo Alvarez is the baby of the bunch. The troubled high school senior was disowned after coming out to his family. Luckily, he found refuge in the B&B with the other 4 interesting characters. He’s doing is best to stay focus amidst is hardships. The spring chicken earned is G.E.D by studying hard and is attending night classes at a University while he busses tables to make ends meet to survive.
And last but certainly not least is the main character of the B&B, Kyle Graham. The 30-something-year-old is owner and operator of the establishment who works effortlessly to keep the place running as smoothly as he possibly can — as you can imagine with the diverse group of characters, smooth sailing isn’t always the case. The blue-eyed handsome gent has a sympathetic ear and is a caring fella. But he does have a checkered mysterious past.
Writer and Illustrator Greg Fox produced the first of Kyle’s Bed & Breakfast in 1998. The talented Fox has been a long time comic writer since the age of 12. He enjoyed some time as a guitarist in rock bands after receiving his B.A. in Upstate New York. But the rock and roller found his way back to comics eventually doing illustrations for Revolutionary Comics, Triumphant Comics, Marvel Comics, IDW & DC Comics.
Fox’s work is amazing, which is evident in the syndicated Kyle’s B&B comic strip. The storyline is a drama fueled fun-filled page turner. And the illustrations are superb.
