PREVIEW: Frank Miller's "Dark Knight Universe Presents: The Atom"
All this month I’ll be reviewing different comic books with LGBT themes (LGBT standing for “Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender”), based on submissions from the actual creators of the comic books themselves. Here is an archive of the comics featured so far!
I’ve had some major internet connectivity issues the last few days, so I fell behind. So I thought a neat way to catch up was to feature all three of Dale Lazarov’s erotic novels in a row. Here’s the review for Nightlife and here‘s the review for Sticky and here‘s the review for Manly. Nightlife is written by Lazarov and drawn by Bastian Jonsson
Remember, we’re talking EROTIC graphic novels, so be forewarned before you read any further! There are sample pages, and they likely are not “safe for work.”
Nightlife is the latest of Dale Lazarov’s series of wordless erotic graphic novels. This time around, the theme is, naturally enough, the nightlife scene.
This book is a mix between Manly and Sticky in the porn to story ratio (Sticky had a lot of story while Manly was a bit more on the porn end than the story end). Lazarov and Jonsson tell a bunch of interesting stories – they seem to almost go out of their way to come up with complicated tales, almost if to test themselves.
The first story is about two guys meeting at an open mike. Jonsson has a unique style that tells the story very well.
There’s an interesting riff in the above comic involving a giant dildo.
The next story is a pretty straightforward tale of a guy getting picked up at an airport bar. Again, though, the storytelling to get the point across without words was very well done.
Finally, in probably the strongest works in the book, an older bouncer tries to attract a young punk kid. It does not work well at first, but he eventually comes along. It’s actually quite sweet, in a funny enough way.
Again, most of this comic is flat-out porn, so if you’re not into seeing a bunch of gay sex, then you’re probably not into this book. But if you are, then this is one of (if not THE) best series of gay porn comics that there is.
Check out Dale’s website for info on how to order (and to see even more sample pages – even more “not safe for work” images!).
