Valentine's Day came and went last week, and the holiday dedicated to love, romance and the sexual expression of such got we at ComicsAlliance thinking about sex, sexiness and how those things are portrayed in comics. As such, we're dedicating the next few weeks to multiple articles on the subject from all angles. You can read Laura Hudson's introduction here, Lauren Davis on Curvy and Erika Moen, David Brothers on the superhero work of Ed Benes to Cliff Chiang, and Jason Michelitch on Milo Manara.
