Are you ready to party like it’s 1979? Though their settings are contemporary, the stories in the porno comic collectionNightlife bring back the glory days when guys would meet and fall into bed with each other just…like…that.
What’s that you say? You do meet guys and fall into bed with them just…like…that? Well, I hope you use condoms, like the gym bunnies in Nightlife do.
This book of stories-without-words has two major things going for it: (1) it’s high-end porn, from the estimable Bruno Gmünder publishing house—a class act; and (2) the men are lovingly, breathtakingly drawn by Bastian Jonsson. Seriously, these guys are so hot, you’d have to be dead and cremated to not react to them. At the same time, they have a cuddly kind of warmth and charm that makes me want to put them in my mouth, like a big old handful of jelly beans.
(Sigh) All that’s missing is a bottle of poppers. Oh wait, that’s so 1979…!
