Guido Crepax’s ‘Bianca’ Fails As Bondage Porn, Succeeds As Sequential Art Classic


Guido Crepax is the name that first popped into my mind when I was told, "Hey, we wouldn't mind too terribly if you wrote a little bit about comics for us." Arguably the most important cartoonist whose work remains all but completely unavailable in English, the late Crepax is an artist whose work has enjoyed a bit of an uptick in critical response this year, with much of it oriented around his long-running erotic series Valentina...

‘Cover Girls’ Spotlights the Pin-Up Skills of ‘Catwoman’ Artist Guillem March [Preview]


While his name may forever be associated with one of the most infamous images in DC Comics history, depicting Catwoman and Batman having masks-on sex on a rooftop on the final page of Catwoman #1 (2011), it would be unjust to deny artist Guillem March the credit he plainly deserves for his excellent pinup art...

Guido Crepax’s ‘Valentina': The High Water Mark of Pornographic Comics

Art and Superheroines: Getting Sex and Cape Comics Right


Sex is a natural part of life. It's how babies are made and it's how people pass the time. It's natural that sex would be a part of superhero comics, too. What's strange is how rare it is to find a well-done sex scenes, or sexy scenes, in cape comics...

Gilbert Hernandez’s ‘Birdland’ Offers Alliteration, Transfiguration, Penetration [Sex]


Gilbert Hernandez's comics, from his work in Love and Rockets to standalone volumes like last year's Love from the Shadows, have often included some pretty intense sexual content. But he's only ever released one project that qualifies as full-on pornography: Birdland, a three-issue miniseries from 1990-1991 and a one-shot sequel from 1994, later collected as a single volume...
