Book Description

8 Nov 2012
Comics for gay men have become enormously popular within the past couple of years. You can find everything from witty and humorous (Ralf Konig) to strong and hung (Patrick Fillion), from cheeky youngsters (Tom Bouden) to adorable twinks who are deeply in love (Mioki). Markus Pfalzgraf is a real a cionado of the colorful genre. With "Stripped" he has compiled a stunning collection, which offers an overview for beginners and also contains some delightful treasures for those who think they've seen it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars useful reference book 3 Mar 2014
By twizz
Verified Purchase
This book works well with the 'straight no lines' book, This book concentrates on European gay comics, an intro into Japanese gay comics and a short intro into the realm of gay porn comics which is also surprisingly useful. The 'straight no lines' picks up the American angle which is largely spurned from the social and political counter culture and alternative movements.

The style of writing / or the English translation is a little basic or too un-intellectual for my tastes and is oddly out of place in such a big hard back publication as this but still, the author has usefully catalogued and made reference to a whole gamut of gay cartoonists from his geographical focus.

For those who enjoy exploring the gay comic both these books together work as a good reference launch pad to sourcing further publications by cartoonists whose work you respond to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sexy and comprehensive survey of gay male comics 18 Dec 2012
By J. Lloyd - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I love this book, I found it to be fairly comprehensive in terms of including European, American,Canadian, and Japanese gay male comics throughout modern history. I like that there was a broader range of comics included because if the book had only been about American work I would have been very disappointed. It is a colorful book, there are nicely laid out excerpts from each comic. There is sweet, romantic comics and darker, edgy comics featured throughout the book. If you're a fan of gay male comics or if you're interested in this genre and want to know more this book is definitely worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A 'Growing' Trend 14 Dec 2012
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
What with the increasing presence of anime and cartoon based Marvel Comic Book movies gaining so much popularity it is not surprising that people who appreciated comic book art would be a large audience for books such as this.
Markus Pfalzgraf knows about as much about gay comics as anyone in the business and he is responsible for this major tome of collected comic book constructors. He opens his collection with an essay about the creation of and the growing appreciation for gay comics. He presents the fact that not only is the art creative and valid but that the accompanying stories are fascinating.

For those in the know, the artists and comic book stories included here are Tom of Finland, Hardcore Underground, Howard Cruse, FLO, YPE, Ralf Konig, Europe/Comic Strip Continent, HIV/AIDS: Timebomb, future and eternity, Censorship. Gengoroh Tagame, Japanese Comics, Patrick Fillion, Mioki, Dale Lazarov, Zack, Franze & Andarle, Gay Super Heroes, Mianstrem, and some interviews with Andreas c. Knigge and Henri Dhellemmes. And the rest is all comic fantasies - lots of dark and dirty imagery that has at its root entertainment and fun.

Perhaps not a book for everyone, but for those who love gay comics this book is a feast. In German and English. Grady Harp, December 12
