This story is about a guy who is afraid of sex.
What did you think of the book?
So… the story is about a guy who is afraid of sex.
But trust me, it’s about so much more than that. This is a brilliant piece of fiction and artistry – both in the storytelling and the art – that has captivated me for over x years. I have been following this strange, and yet poignant tale from its first pages and can honestly say I am happy with the final results.
Unusual characters in an unusual story with an equally unusual ending. My only “problem,” you could say, is that Lucian is not so much afraid of sex, as he is just uninterested in it and lacks the desire for it. I mean, yes – to an extent, he is genuinely afraid of the idea of having sex with someone else. You can see that clearly in the nightmarish dreams he has so often through the pages. But it’s much more than that. Lucian is asexual, or some spectrum thereof. Probably aromantic. I’m not going to speculate further since titles aren’t used in the comic. Nevertheless, the story circles around this topic and the relationship he eventually builds with Nikita, a man who loves him and whom he too loves just as much.
Any warnings you wish to make for your readers?
Because of the obvious nature of the content: nudity, sex, cursing, and some horror-esque graphic imagery.
Is it available to read for free? Where can I purchase it?
The answer to both questions is right here.
Does it count towards any reading challenges?
Yup! A whole bunch. xD
