As the title states, this is a graphic novel for adults only and anyone who is familiar with the artwork of Oliver Frey, who is also known as Zack, will not be disappointed with this collection of four pieces of Frey's outstanding artwork.
Published by Bruno Gmunder, this celebration of Frey's artistic talent is shown in Bike Boy which tells of the homo-erotic adventures of a young lad and the guys he meets on his motorcycle journey. The second story is entitled Tender Bait and is set in a town in south east Asia where a chance meeting leads to inevitable homo-erotic behaviour. The third story features a lad called Kyle Jansen who goes to a party and understands what it is like to be Slaves To Lust. Teasy Meat is the final story and features nineteen year old Puerto Rican, Ricky, finding himself in some unusual encounters.
Oliver Frey beautifully illustrates the four stories and as an artist of cult homo-eroticisim, he belongs amongst the other greats like Tom of Finland, Belasco, Patrick Fillion and Mark. Frey made his name as a homo-erotic artist during the late 70's/early 80's with illustrations appearing in British gay magazines like Him Monthly and Vulcan and illustrated the popular Him Gay Library. He also illustrated the monthly comic strip 'The Street' but is most famously known for the creation of cult figure, Rogue, whose homo-erotic adventures were collected in a graphic magazine in the 80's. His artwork is also featured in a number of America's Meatmen books. Ultimately, Frey went on to illustrate gaming magazines and remains one of Britain's most iconic artists.
Hopefully, Bike Boy will be the first in a series to feature Oliver Frey's artwork and an even greater hope is that the Rogue stories are reprinted in a graphic novel form for readers to enjoy and admire.
Highly recommended, and at a very affordable price thanks to Amazon, for those who appreciate homo-erotic art.

I was not previously familiar with Zach's work. He strikes me as a modern Tom of Finland. His characters are unabashedly out for one thing: maximum pleasure with other guys in situations which have more to do with fantasy than reality and which are portrayed with erotically charged zest and brilliance. This is a world where to be gay and priapically proud is the norm. It is hard not to be captivated.

If you are like me and have been an admirer of Oliver Frey`s (Zach) art work, for me since Look & Learn - the Trigon Empire. Then this will meet your expectations. Beautifully drawn and coloured, very raunchy and emotive too.

Format: Paperback
This volume collects four of Zack's gay erotic comic strips in full-colour - mostly originally published in Meatmen magazine as monochrome art - along with some full-page and spot illustrations. The stories are -
Bike Boy - 22pp
Tender Bait - 12pp
Slaves to Lust - 30pp
Teasy Meat - 26pp

These are superb examples of gay male erotic comic stories, by a master artist, who is able to create a well-designed and constructed story while also delivering explicit erotic scenes.

Whether or not you are in tune with the subject matter, Zack (Oliver Frey)does what he does very well.
If this is your thing - then go ahead and buy; you'll get a lot of pleasure from the sheer quality of the work
