“Sex” is a provocative comic that looks into the private lives of superheroes and their foes. Simon Cooke is a billionaire and former superhero, attempting to live a civilian life at the request of his mentor, Quinn, after her death. His constant training and night patrolling have left him sexually repressed. While Simon’s friends help him adjust to retirement, his former foes lurk in the shadows, filling the vacuum created during Simon’s absence. His return has a domino affect on Saturn City, as the secrets of his superhero past slowly come to light.
In this installment, Stephen and Matthew talk about Sex from Image Comics. It’s a book that does have sex in it, and the duo discuss the necessity for Sex.
No idea what this is about, but I’m sure the solicitations will fill us in very soon.
When you’re a retired superhero, adrift in the city that you were once sworn to protect, no longer bound by the code of the crimefighter, what do you do? If you’re Simon Cooke you struggle to re-integrate yourself into regular society, and you become drawn to a world you’ve never known before – of pleasure, abandon, confusion and… SEX.
Can Cannabis cure our societal ailments? Will THC be the key to worldwide harmony? Can overt drug references keep this drug-induced dirigible afloat? Prepare your bag of potato chips, grab your hookah (if you’re of age and inclined to participate in that sort of thing) and take the jump to find out!
Or – “The Power Of Marketing In Action!”
Over the last few years, the comic book industry has become much more about promotion, about that killer idea, about promotion and perception of a book as much as the book itself. The recent promotional blitz for Morning Glories hooked me early, and brought me onto that title from day one with clever and attractive teasers (in more than one sense of the word.) When they followed those with the bizarre, endearingly vulgar promos that heralded this book, I was sure that we were looking at something special. Whether that something is a monster hit or a massive misfire wasn’t clear… until NOW.
While we’ve seen many of the teaser and cover images for the upcoming Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker, we here at Major Spoilers have still been scratching our heads to to what exactly the story is going to be about. Image Comics let us in on the upcoming Mike Huddleston and Joe Casey collaboration and it does confirm what many of us suspected – adult material.
BUTCHER BAKER was the preeminent All-American superhero. A long time ago. Now, he’s getting laid… a lot. One last mission could return him to glory… IF he doesn’t screw it up.
Fallen officer, Terrence Downe, has been given a second chance to help take back the streets of Los Angeles. Resurrected by the most powerful minds on the planet, Officer Downe is back from the grave to put criminals in theirs.
The Durlan terrorist has set his end game in motion. Superman is tied up fighting NRG-X in the fortress of solitude while Batman attempts to prevent the alien’s attack in space. The last surviving members of two species must now fight to the death for the sake of their planets.
Superman and Batman are easily two of the greatest comic book characters ever to be created. Alone, they are legendary. Together, they are the World’s Finest. This comic is dedicated to telling various tales of the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight’s friendship, adventures together, and comparisons on their often contrary lives.
