The excellent gay porno comic Sticky is now available in a hard-cover collection. Dale Lazarov and Steve MacIsaac do an excellent job in creating a porn comic that's well illustrated as well as erotic. In particular, there's a very nice variety of body types on display in the book, and a strong sense of sex as a fun, mutually satisfying activity. For any fan of gay porn, this is a "must have" for your collection.
Fear the Dead is the latest zombie-comic from Boom Studios. Even as the zombie-horror boom seems to be (thankfully!) fading away, Boom manages to keep it interesting. The format for this story is single-panel, pin-up style illustrations of zombies, accompanied by short text pieces telling the story of a journalist trapped in the city when the zombies came. The illustrations are from a wide variety of artists, and run the gamut from the grotesque to the comic. A sort of retro look is well represented, giving many of the pictures a (for the subject matter) quaint appeal. A few pictures don't work, mostly the attempts to draw "sexy" female zombies, but the overall quality of the work is good. For fans of the zombie genre in comics, this book is almost certainly a must have, but it should also have strong appeal for horror fans in general and fans of pin-ups and sketchbooks as well.
