“It’s not porn – IT’S FETISHMAN!” (NSFW)

Not for the "easily" offended...

I’ve known about this comic for a few years now, but it wasn’t until I met the author of Fetishman – Geof Banyard – at Bristol EXPO that I felt compelled to buy a few of the comics and read them cover-to-cover. And I’m glad I did.

I’ve mostly read a lot of serious graphic novels and comic books, none has come close to page-by-page comedy. And so , it was only a matter of time before I gave in and began reading Fetishman in order to balance out a rather sombre reading collection when it comes to this medium.

The comic series is named after the main protagonst: Fetishman, who seems to spend all his time in one particular outfit and is a masochist that happens to be fond of a number of “sexual mores”. He also has this habit of trying to stop crime and supervillains with the aid of Lactose Intolerant Boy and Mistress Domination.

Perhaps the coolest part about the comics is the whimsical take they have on sexual fetishes. I bought the first five issues at EXPO, and the fifth one is a hilarious take on Furries. There’s a lot of “yiffing” to be sure.

There are plenty of more issues for me to try and get my hands on, but for now, I just wanted to say that if you’re looking for something a little “different” and haven’t already heard about this and you like tea, British stuff, sexual references and a man wobbling about in a full fetish outfit… then you should read Dr Geoff’s stuff. You really, really should.
