Book-A-Day #13 (7/29): Short Strokes, Volume Two by Richard Moore

Moore is the author/illustrator of the excellent humorous-adventure-with-horror-characters comic Boneyard, which I heartily recommend. He's also done a weird western graphic novel called Far West, which is also quite good. Both of those books feature a certain amount of PG-13 sexual suggestiveness, as part of the overall story.

But Moore also does outright NC-17 porno comics, and Short Strokes is the series title of the collections of that work. I read the second collection today, and I think that's all I'm going to say about it; there's not much I feel comfortable talking about on a porn book. (His drawing is as good as in any of his other work, with anatomical models -- these are fantasy stories, after all, in several sense of the word. And his dialogue is better than most porn comics; these aren't as good as Phil Foglio's wonderful Xxxenophile books, but they're close.) I probably wouldn't have mentioned it at all if I weren't doing the Book-A-Day thing; I neglected to mention that I bought it at the comics shop yesterday out of a fit of embarrassment.
