Sexy Time Week: Backlash

I'm rounding out Sexy Time Week with a look at Backlash, an adult comic by Caragonne and Beachum. It was serialised in Penthouse magazine (US edition) as part of their Penthouse Comix imprint. This episode is from the Feb 1996 issue.

Errr, nice ass. I guess that's what one should say when faced with something like that, heh. It's a given that things are going to revolve around naked people, but how about the actual plot?

Lesbo-Feminists! Gyno-Traitors! Oh the horror!

Heh, they said "penetrated"...

That would be the high tech bike they mentioned. I haven't read the rest of the series (honest), but that panel right there is all the action (violence related atleast) you're gonna get this issue. That may or may not be a bad thing depending on what you want from your porn comics.

Our troubled heroine needs to get things off her chest*, and stops by the local church for confession. Here's as good a time as any to pause and admire her costume.

That's taking the dental-floss g-string concept to a whole new level, it's a wonder she can walk.

Not content with just listening, the priestess has a confession of her own. Dark sense of foreboding anyone?

Hey, I don't go to church, but I'm pretty sure that's not how it's supposed to work. Maybe I need to start going...

Can I get a "yay, lesbians"?

Yes, yes I can.

Don't be fooled though. This is a grim and gritty tale of the future!

As opposed to Jaguar God, this writer actually makes an effort to atleast make things a little interesting. Or at the very least, they know what caption boxes are for.

Just in case you were in any doubt as to how large Backlash's breasts are:

One explosion, a lesbian scene, and a little bit of plot advancement. Mission accomplished, agent Backlash!

*yes, I actually managed to refrain from adding a bad joke there. I'm amazed too.

Sexy Time Week: Can't Sing, Can't Write Comics

.....aaaaand we're back. Today, it's a look at the oh-so-awesome Jaguar God #4 from Verotik Comics, the adult line overseen (and in this case, written by) one Glenn Danzig.

The series premise being that there's a primitive jungle land overseen and protected by the mythical Jaguar God, who manifests as a barbarian cloaked in Jaguar skins. Your basic excuse to have naked jungle chicks, and people getting hacked up with axes. That's an idea I can get behind, but will it be any good? The readers seemed to think so:
On with the show!

In this tale, Spanish forces led by some 3-armed dude have invaded the jungle and are enslaving/killing/torturing the natives.

Don't forget, this is an adult comic. There's not just going to be nudity, there's going to be "adult situations". How will the male captors handle being surrounded by all that girl flesh?

Cue explicit rape scene where 4 guys try to have their way with one of the slave girls. I'll spare you the visual evidence, and just skip to the rescue by our hero!

I'm all for rapists getting cut in half, tbh

Conveniently, the men get to wear clothes or loin cloths. The women just have to stay naked and strike revealing poses. Come to think of it, this jungle must be in Brazil, because the girls all have the wax jobs to prove it. Pubes do not a good comic make.

So anyway, Jaguar God runs around killing people for a few pages, then it's time for the boss fight.

Have a read of those awesomely descriptive captions. I'm so glad they thought to describe what was happening in the pictures, because I couldn't figure it out on my own.

That's that, and it's all over bar the letters page, which is just as 'good' as the comic.

Behold, the "real world" goodness of the Jaguar God!

Yeah, DC and Marvel would be totally jealous of all the artists causing the several-month delays between issues. Having a different artist every issue (and 2 in this one) had absolutely nothing to do with scheduling ;)

This thing really is crap on so many different fronts. Weak plot (why would Jaguar God let dozens of his people be slaughtered, but intervene when one of them gets raped?), very skimpy dialogue, captions mirroring exactly what the artist is showing you. Not to mention the typical idea of "adult" comics meaning you get to show all sorts of things happening to women, rather than coming up with interesting stories that happen to involve sex related stuff.

Sexy Time Week: Inter-lude

Ok, so I'm sick with a cold, and it's summer. Go me. "Sexy Time Week" will return shortly with a terrifying look at the mind of Glen Danzig, but in the mean time, I found this old DC editorial piece quite amusing:

Sexy Time Week: Of back doors and demons

Etrigan's such a naughty Demon. Of course, it's entirely possible I'm reading the innuendo into it myself. My brain's kinda screwy like that...

Sexy Time Week: Remember to wrap up, kids

A public service message brought to you by the JLI circa 1993.

Yes Booster, he clearly means aids. It's the type of thing most guys throw into casual conversation.


Gotta love Bea sticking up for her skanky friends ;)
I don't quite understand what Ted's feeling better about, but never mind.
