2004 Alternative Press Expo Swag Review: True Adult Fantasy, #2

Important fact from the Flaming Artist's introduction to True Adult Fantasy, #2: When he was very young, the artist fell in love with Ed Asner of the "Mary Tyler Moore Show". This explains almost everything.

I like the Flaming Artist's drawing very very much. This book is full of excellent black and white drawings of middle aged, big, hairy men alone or with other men. As a lover of figurative art, I really do like drawings of men and women that have a good mix of poetry and honesty. The stand alone drawings in this book have that for me. I wish the whole book were these drawings.

Where it goes south for me is not in the drawing but in the narrative of Harry and Dickless Tom, parts 3 and 4. This strip, which is only 20 pages of the 48 page book, really needs a "story so far" because I have no idea why one of these burly truckers has a vagina. Also, in this episode, Tom meets a chick with a dick, so they do the only logical thing: they have sex. Harry has a jealous fit of cognitive dissonance, he and Tom have a really well drawn fist fight and then make up sex. It's all wonderfully rendered and I suppose well told, but I really didn't enjoy it very much. Sorry, I just couldn't get over Tom's vagina and into the story, what there was of it. However, I would recommend this book for the drawing and, in all honesty, my hang-ups are only mine, so a guy with a vagina might be much cooler than I can allow myself to enjoy looking at. Hey, it's a big world; there's room for all of us. And there you have it.
True Adult Fantasy, #2, $6.95 + shipping.
