About Husbands http://
Husbands is a web-based sitcom (and now a graphic novel) which tells the story of two young men, professional athlete Brady Kelly and tabloid darling Cheeks who sparked a media firestorm when they woke up legally wed after a drunken Vegas weekend. But undoing their “I Dos” with a quickie divorce would only undermine the hard-fought battle for equality, so they decide to give the marriage a go.
