Today, 2 Broke Girls star Beth Behrs and her Broadway bestie, actor Matt Doyle are debuting season 2 of their hugely popular digital comic series Dents , exclusively on leading digital comics platform, LINE Webtoon.
Dents 2 was co-created and co-written along with Behrs’ long time best friend actor/musician Matt Doyle (who can be seen now in the off-Broadway production of “Sweeny Todd”) and is a continuation of their post-apocalyptic journey to the year 2111, where more than half of the world population has been wiped out by an ancient deadly plague released by the melting polar ice caps due to global warming. A vaccine is eventually created, but a side-effect is a huge rise in the birth of twins, all of whom possess mysterious and dangerous powers and come to be known by the rest of society as Dents. The series picks up several months later where Eleanor, Jamie, Jacqueline, Chloe and the others are continuing to demonstrate what the good dents can do, as they battle against nether Dents Nick and Fisher, who have come to power and who intend on making Dents a master race.
Additionally, in honor of Pride Month and honoring the multiple LGBT creators and characters available on LINE Webtoon, Webtoon asked Doyle what being an LGBT comic creator means for him and the community:
“It’s a good feeling knowing that I can bring another perspective into the comic book world that hasn’t always been heavily represented. When I was a kid, I identified with comics about outsiders and anti-heroes that didn’t fit in. It has always been a goal of mine to create stories that give voices to the voiceless” – Matt Doyle (Dents)
