Continuing our theme of illustrated delights, author/artist Bex has graciously offered to grace our pages once again. We have already explored his work from Amazing Transformation Comics, TGComics.com, and Lustomic, but this week he invites us into the pages of Closet-Ark.
Closet-Ark. This is a free collection of erotic stories and artwork, designed to introduce the creators to a wider audience. For a free showcase it is beautifully laid out in magazine format, complete with advertisements, and has some interesting interactive features (look for the red targets).
The Adults Only comic by Noah Vale and I Fluke is well-drawn and entertaining, with a nice progression from curiosity, to fantasy, to erotic reality, but its uncomfortable opening taints the whole thing. The 3Some with Mommy comic by Milo Goose and I Fluke explores an unorthodox family dynamic with a great twist ending; The Bride of Brake Neck Mill captures the old newsprint look of a golden age comic beautifully; and Scandal at Twonks by Rik Backwell and I Fluke explores a short but erotic scene of teacher-student seduction.
Fembody stands out from all the rest, being as clear, crisp, and polished as all of Bex's work. It is a short comic, with only the first page fully colored, but it captures the spirit of sexual adventure and exploration beautifully. It is an online dating scenario that could have gone horribly wrong, with a sissy femboy revealing himself to a trio of sailors, but not only do they accept him, they offer him the kind of reassurance and admiration he so desperately needs. It is a dirty story, but one with a heart.
The magazine closes with some single-panel artwork from various artists, and a few short stories that are worth the read. Ash Bond explores male pregnancy; Annabelle B illustrates her own story of an arranged gay marriage with forced feminization; and an unknown author closes things out with a story of crossdressing cops.
A fun magazine, it is a little unfinished (with editorial and layout notes throughout that were not deleted), but I am always delighted to see new explorations of gender and sexuality.
