Changing Directions

Comic-Book-Meme-1

So, I wanted to diverge a little bit here and feature one of my other Kickstarter guilty pleasures… Comic books.

I’ve backed quite a few comics on Kickstarter and so far, they have been really amazing. Not to mention, they have all come with some pretty kick-ass perks. This week’s Tuesday spotlight is no different and I am incredibly excited for it to be printed and in hand.

Also, just as a brief warning, some images in this post are NSFW. So, if you are at work, use your best judgement… Or just be really sneaky.

Romance, Robots, and Hot Sex!

Today’s spotlight features book two of Jess Fink’s webcomic series, Chester 5000 XYV. This series is Victorian era sci-fi, with panel illustrations inspired by the style of early erotic photography.

Book one of the series chronicles the budding romance between Pricilla and Chester 5000. A woman who knows what she wants, Pricilla is a character bursting with desire and sexual needs. Her husband Robert, not sure how to satisfy her fully, creates Chester 5000 XYV to attend to the needs he cannot. Though at first she is unsure about the metal man, his attentiveness as a companion and a lover easily win her over. What starts off as sexual desires being fulfilled, soon becomes an unlikely love connection. The story follows the pair through the start of their burgeoning romance, nighttime rendezvous, marital turmoil, and reconciliation.

Book two, Chester 5000: Isabelle and George, is a continuation of the story, this time going back to the roots of how the characters meet. Isabelle (who also makes an appearance in the first book) is an orphan who is constantly under the heel of her matron. George is a brilliant engineer and inventor, about to make an amazing breakthrough. The two meet and love unfolds, weaving a story filled with intimacy, friendship, taboo desires, government wickedness, and ultimately, happiness. Pricilla, Robert and Chester have their parts to play in this story as well.
