The Season 8 winner of Ru Paul’s Drag Race is now the star of a queer super hero comic available exclusively on Instagram.

Kickass Drag Queen features illustrations by artist Matteo Lane and was written by Bob the Drag Queen—who is depicted as a barista turned badass super hero.

“So excited to announce my collaboration with @matteolane," Bob wrote on Instagram.

"We have been working on a superhero named @kickassdragqueen. I haven't been this excited about a project in a long time."

The first panel features Bob in an apron, working in a coffee shop.

“After a long day of earning minimum wage, Bob is ready to go home. That’s when he hears the distinctive cry of a defenceless pocket gay”.

Bob then puts on his magical crown and a striking pink catsuit with matching boots to become Kickass Drag Queen.

In the fight scene panel, the hilarious comic plays on 60s Batman onomatopoeic graphics (Biff! Kapow! Zam!) and uses the words 'Cher!' and 'Prep!' as Bob fights off a group of gym bullies.

The first episode has already gained thousands of fans, who are eagerly awaiting the next instalment.

One Instagram user wrote: “INSTANTLY ICONIC. WHERE'S THE MERCH. WHERE'S THE MOVIE DEAL. WHERE'S THE FOLLOW-UP TV SERIES.”

“LMAOOO done. You slayed me 😂😂 definitely Marvel Comics worthy,” wrote another.

Fans have also pointed out that one character in the comic strip seems to be based on Bob’s real life assistant, Luis Alvarez.

“Ok that gay boy was definitely slightly (severely) inspired in Mr. Luis Alvarez aka @bobsassistant aka the creator of #5secondswithluis and Im not mad at it,” one person wrote.
