sex in comics

In this issue: $3.99! Too much to pay for a comic… or FAR too much to pay for a comic? The mysterious troubadour revealed! Two men will enter, one man will leave, but both men will make more money than all three of us put together. Also on tap: News you can use, reviews to he’p you choose, the pop culture blues, Deadpool’s dancing shoes, ain’t go no Tom Cruise, and the dreaded Ess- Ee-Ecks gets dragged out of the backseat of the Yaris and into the light, as we look as Super Happy Adult Fun Time Activities in comic terms.

DEADPOOL #5
COVER BY: JASON PEARSON
WRITER: DANIEL WAY
PENCILS: CARLO BARBERI

“HORROR BIZNESS,” Part 2 (of 2)
This is what Deadpool has to resort to, only days after single-handedly saving the entire planet from Skrulls? Oh, that’s right—nobody knows about that…Deadpool didn’t even want this job. But here he is anyway, in some dank corner of Eastern Europe, going toe-to-toe with an undead plastic surgeon and his flesh-eating clientele, contracted by the head of a greasy paramilitary unit to avenge the zombification of the guy’s young, ex-model trophy wife — and all because Wade’s dead broke.
Parental Advisory …$2.99

MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
You know what would increase attendance at comic book conventions around the country? Cage matches. Not cage matches with the GLOW or those Octagon fighters, but epic battles between the Editor-in-Chiefs of the comic book publishing world.

Since the New York Comic Con is taking place this weekend, and since NYC is the supposed center of the universe, why not kick off these EIC Cage Match Battles with the head honchos from DC and Marvel.

A) Joe Quesada
B) Dan Didio

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION
SEX IN COMICS
This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the crew tackles the subject of Sex in Comics – not sex on comics, because, well, we keep falling off (ba-dum-bum).

What do you think of the portrayal of sex in the funny books? What should be allowed, what shouldn’t? How far is too far? What comics feature the best and the worst on the subject? It’s a topic that is deep, and one we’ll attempt to tackle.

    great show as usual.
    what people don’t remember is that Quesada and Didio have already fought.
    Quesada won but Didio ret-conned it and now it never happened.

    Actually, the Yellowjacket/Wasp sex scene was written by Geoff Johns, not Chuck Austen. And they weren’t married at the time. (Nitpicky, nitpicky!) I am quite glad to hear you guys take a reasonable approach to that scene! There was so much violent reaction to that that I didn’t understand.

    (I’m kicking myself for not getting time/privacy to pull out the mic and send in audio comments on this subject!)

      You are correct, Doc… But either way, I didn’t see any reason for uproar…

    Thanks for the shout-out on the show! Glad the song is bringing joy to thousands and millions of fans worldwide… and to the hearts of three totally beeped up hosts.

    Where is the “Luke Cage has anal sex with Jessica”-scene and the whole “Call me Uncle”-scene from Swamp Thing (the most creepy incest scene ever)???

    One thing you missed on the Avengers sex scene:

    Hank Pim doesn’t say “you’re welcome”, he says “Your turn” =P

    If it wasn’t for sex in comics I would never had read Bondage Fairies.
