5.0 out of 5 stars Classic contemporary medium-core gay comics, 3 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hot For Boys (Paperback)
This volume reprints 90 pages of full-colour Rogue comic strips (emphasis on the strip) created by Zack (Oliver Frey), which began publication in the late 1970s. They were originally published primarily in monochrome but are presented here in full-colour. There appear to be 29 strips, ranging from 2-pages to one story at 8; though some of the smaller ones form serials. They feature "The Sexy Adventures of Rogue", and live up to their name, as the artist is a superb craftsman, as well as an able storyteller. These are not just explicit sexual adventures, as they were originally published in `over the counter' magazines, so had to stay within certain boundaries - primarily no male erections - and so Zack mastered the art of horizontal rather than vertical depictions of male genitalia, all the while designing the story panels so that this feature did not stand out in any way, distracting the viewer with the action within the panel. These stories are erotic without being `just' explicit action scenes, as Zack is far too skilled an artist and storyteller to just throw images at the reader. There is superb craftsmanship on display in the stories here, as well as gay male sex. This is an excellent collection of gay male erotica, and is just the first of several volumes of this artist'
