About Beatitudes of the Beat
 

Every generation a new Mystical Boyscout is born, with the collective powers of their queer forebears; Oscar Wilde, James Baldwin and Bert and Ernie. This generations Mystical Boyscout is a largely clueless Australian barista and substack writer, who is currently tasked with bringing same-sex marriage to Ireland. His boyfriend, Alex is meanwhile rotting away in Melbourne, experimenting with casual sex to feel alive and dealing with a chaotic sharehouse.

 

"More profane, inventive and funny than ever. Aaron Billings' queer comic book hero is a free-wheeling delight to read" 
Rachel Ang

 

“Aaron Billings is back to lead us out of the darkness with another profound and profane joy. Thank goodness for Mystical Boyscout” 
- Ronnie Scott
