"...there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous men who need no repentance."
Ninety-Nine Righteous Men (Tapastic mirror) is a webcomic that was first independently published by K.M. Claude in Spring of 2015, and then later released on a regular basis as a webcomic through Tapastic and ComicFury throughout 2016. The story focuses on Father Daniel, a young Catholic Priest somewhere in Present Day America, who has grown attached to a parishoner named Caleb. Caleb starts behaving oddly one day, though, leading Father Daniel to believe that he is possessed. When the monsignor doesn't believe him, though, Father Daniel is forced to go to the only licensed exorcist he knows— the disrobed Father Adam, whom Father Daniel has a troubled history with. They then have to overcome their mutual distrust in order to battle Caleb's literal demon.

Ninety-Nine Righteous Men contains examples of:

  • Ambiguously Bi: Adam is subtlely hinted at being bisexual, and has been declared so via Word of God.
  • Big Bad: Ashmedai.
  • Bury Your Gays: Subverted as the bulk of the main cast is gay and only one of them dies.
  • Cast Full of Gay: Every main character is some degree of attracted to men.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: Caleb when he begins to act differently.
  • Fan Disservice: One scene contains a fully nude Caleb, apparently with Ashmedai's tentacle-like genitalia in the vicinity of his butt
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Adam.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Adam is often seen wearing shirts declaring his sexual appeal, while Caleb is frequently in some degree of undress.
  • Naughty Tentacles: Ashmedai's tentacle-like genetalia often wind up in pretty below-the-belt spots on others.
  • Older Than They Look: Pretty much all of the main cast. Adam and Daniel appear to be young twenty-somethings despite having both been fully ordained, Caleb appears in some panels to be a minor though he's seen in 18+ areas, and of course Ashmedai is thousands of years old.

  • Questionable Consent: It's never made clear what happened between Adam and Daniel. More prominently, Caleb may not have been able to consent to whatever was going on between him and Father Daniel, though because he never said anything at the end, he may well have been completely aware of everything Ashmedai did and allowed it to continue.
  • Shout-Out: The bar Adam and Daniel meet up at is called "BJ's Roadhouse," a reference to season 2 episode 11 of the 1989 Beetlejuice cartoon.
  • Wham Shot: When Adam's eyes begin to bleed it becomes immediately apparent that he's not going to make it out of this alive.
