ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 84: Sex in Comics

Episode 83 of the ComicsVerse Podcast centers around sex in comics! ComicsVerse Comics and Managing Culture Editor Jamie Rice is joined by panelists Bob Franco, Dellen Miller, Phil Casey, Matt Murphy, Mark Bouchard, and Kay Honda!

LISTEN: Want more tawdry comic book stories? Listen to the comics that are our guilty pleasures!

In this episode, our panelists discuss books like SEX CRIMINALS, CATWOMAN, and SAGA in an attempt to unpackage the way in which sex and sexuality function in comic narratives. First, they recount the days of the CCA, or Comics Code of America, and the impact that it had on the American comics industry before moving on to discuss the idea of feminist sex in comics. The comics industry has and continues to suffer from a lack of female creators- thus, female characters are often both written and drawn by men, often leading to the character catering to the male gaze. Our panelists unpackage the intent behind the characters, as well as the actions taken by the characters themselves, to see just what makes a depiction of sex, “feminist.” They unpackage how real world attitudes about sex culture, such as the double standard that exists between men and women regarding promiscuity, and how they function in the real world.

In addition to this, our panelists explore the world of fetishism and erotic comics before moving on to a discussion about consent and rape in terms of a handful of comics, including NIGHTWING and KAIJUMAX. Going further, the panelists discuss whether or not rape should be present in comics at all, and the use of trigger warnings.

HEAR: Lots of SAGA in this podcast! Want more? Listen to Jamie host an entire podcast on SAGA alone!

With a reading list comprised of superhero and non-cape comics, this podcast was so intense, and had so many puns, that it couldn’t be contained in just one segment, so stay tuned for part two!

Deconstructing Comics #496: Oglaf: Sword, Sorcery, and Sex

Oglaf

If you like your comedy sexy (or your porn funny), you’re probably a fan of Oglaf, Doug Bayne and Trudy Cooper‘s long-running Web comic. This week, Tim calls up Doug and Trudy in Sydney to talk about the fantasy-parody elements of the strip, the missing main character Ivan, the diversity of sexual orientations in the strip, why they rarely table at conventions, and more.

Deconstructing Comics #436: Jess Fink

Jess FinkIt’s one thing to have sex with a robot. What if you actually started having feelings for your A.I. S.O.? What if you started preferring the robot to your actual human partner? That’s the situation in Jess Fink‘s sexual, but also romantic and even moving, graphic novel Chester 5000 xyv. Jess discusses the book with Tim in this episode, as well as her sci-fi autobiographical story We Can Fix It, getting a book-jacket blurb from Alan Moore, making comics for kids, and more.

Deconstructing Comics #422: A Friendly Sketcher and an Evil Diva

sketchfroWhile Chris Taylor goes by the pen name “Sketchfro“, he no longer has an afro and he does a whole lot more than sketch. An American living in Tokyo, he does freelance art, his own comics, and pro-level digital coloring.

In this episode he talks about getting digital coloring right, drawing women with sex appeal, and the work he’ll be promoting at Tokyo’s International Comics Fest later this month.

 

evildivaWhen last we checked in on the Web comic Evil Diva, an artist needed to be paid and fans were being asked to cough up cash before the next page could be drawn. Now the comic is being published as a graphic novel, and will even get a cameo in an upcoming movie. Are the comics gods finally smiling on Evil Diva? Let’s ask the strip’s creator, Peter Menotti, and see.
