The Dirty Comics Show Curated by Jon Macy Features Mari Naomi, Patrick Fillion, Justin Hall and More at The Center for Sex and Culture in October in SF!
Erotic comics are as old as comics themselves. While comics were thought of as the medium of adolescents for much of the twentieth century, erotic work has always permeated the form. Jon Macy has curated a show featuring the work of over thirty contemporary artists. Some are known for their erotic work and others are known for more mainstream work and their erotic work is rarely seen. Both art and artists span a wide array of genders, orientations, races and ages. A broad spectrum of tastes and styles are sure to provide something for any viewer.
Jon Macy is a local erotic comic artist known for his work in gay porn magazines, as well as his series Fearful Hunter and his recent Lambda Literary Award winning graphic novel Teleny and Camille.
The schedule is as follows:
Friday, October 7 from 6 to 9pm: “The Dirty Comics Show” opens
Thursday, October 13 from 7pm: “A Discussion of Yaoi”. Yaoi is a distinct form of erotic comic work featuring sex between men as titillation for a female audience. Join us for a fascinating discussion led by Agnes Czaja
Tuesday October 18 from 7 to 10pm: “Kinky Wonder Woman”. Boston Blake gives us a lasso laced lecture on the kinky origins and innuendos of Americas most famous female super hero. A deep view in to one of many crossover points between mainstream and erotic comics.
The Center for Sex and Culture is located at 1349 Mission Street between 9th and 10th Streets. Gallery hours to be posted. For more information, go to www.sexandculture.org.
