Sunstone Vol 1

Two women deal with modern themes of sex, relationships, and fetishism in this erotic romantic comedy. So beware all who enter, because, to quote a few hundred thousand readers on DeviantArt: “I’m not into BDSM…but this story…I get it.”

 Sunstone is a gorgeous work of erotic fiction.

The art is sensational: digitally-painted, a blend of realism, Disney, and a dash of Anime for good measure. The skin of the characters glows with warmth, and the bondage gear is inventive and quite interestingly engineered. The costumes range from cute to weird to downright alien at times, but it can never be said they aren’t fascinating.

Dollface #3

Dollface and company finally arrived to their destination of the mystical necronomicon book. But will Zombie Tramp hand it over without a fight?

Every good story needs a bit of history with some backstory to help the audience connect. Without it we’d be left with questions that would leave us feeling unfilled and probably lost. Moving into the third issue of Dollface, we see more of what has led to the tale as it stands today.

After Lila’s encounter with the cruel witch Elva from her past, Ivan gives a hand in tracking her down. With the recently installed upgrades, Lila manages to take down Elva with little trouble.

The Life After Vol 1

Jude’s life is nothing special. It seems like every day is just a repeat of the last one, until one day, he meets a woman and can suddenly see into her past — revealing that he is actually in Purgatory for suicides. Now that he’s awake, he and the legendary Ernest Hemingway are on the path to change things in the afterlife for the better. Of course, that might not sit very well with the bigwigs down below or up above. Can just a few people change the course of billions of souls? 

This trade collects the first five issues of the ongoing series, that Joshua Wilson (Nailbiter & Birthright) calls, “an amazing work of comics.”

The Life After really is something special.

If you find yourself rolling your eyes through the first couple of pages, keep reading. The art isn’t much to write home...
