useful reference book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stripped (Hardcover)
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.
