Pleasure Dome

Dishonorable Mention

This dishonorable mention has little to do with the yaoi rape and torture in this volume of short stories. I'm not into that sort of thing, but I'm sure there's someone out there who is. And it's not the art, because the art is good except for the complete lack of genitals on anybody.

(So actually it's a bunch of well-dressed Ken dolls raping each other.)

The stories are rushed, disjointed, and juxtapose surprisingly dull dialog with images of coerced sex. Good art can carry a mediocre story -- but it can't carry this mess.

Pleasure Dome is available from Right Stuf, Intl., an online retailer specializing in anime and manga.
