A RACY JOURNEY INTO THE COLORFUL, UNIQUE AND RISQUÉ WORLD OF EROTIC COMIC STRIPS

 Sex in the Comix

Hosted by renowned New York comic artist and burlesque performer Molly Crabapple

 

SEX IN THE COMIX embarks on a revealing voyage into the heart of erotic comic strips, the enticing art form that serves to unleash and expose society’s collective, if taboo, fantasies.

SexinComix_PosterHosted by erotic comic creator, burlesque performer and VICE contributing editor Molly Crabapple, SEX IN THE COMIX navigates the history of the art form, from special editions by masters of the genre to provocative new works from a younger generation of artists. The documentary features legendary comic creators R. Crumb, Milo Manara and Ralf König, as well as work from new wave and mainstream artists, including the impact of Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home, the game-changing graphic memoir which was adapted into last year’s Tony-winning Broadway musical. SEX IN THE COMIX serves as a stimulating and charming exploration into a one-of-a-kind medium.

Doppelgänger Releasing will release SEX IN THE COMIX on digital VOD for the first time in the United States on October 13, 2015, where it will be available on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu and Vimeo On Demand

Filled with an array of alluring comic strip panels and equally beguiling segments featuring animation by graphics stylists Thomas Fage and Yann Deval, SEX IN THE COMIX is a delightful dip into the realm of comic strip eros—the perfect pick for those interested in animation, for those interested in erotica, and for anyone intrigued by the intersection of the two.
