Sunstone – Review
Saturday is the perfect time to wander through the stacks (that’s librarian-speak for “bookshelves”) and talk about books and the people who write them. Pull up a comfy chair and settle in, because today I want to chat about a wonderful queer positive, sex positive, and all around awesome comic called Sunstone written and drawn by Stjepan Sejic.
Billed as an erotic romantic comedy, which is just a fun series of words to get to type out, Sunstone follows the journey of two women in the BDSM scene. Whether or not BDSM is your scene, there’s a lot to love in this comic as it explores themes of love, trust, self-identity, grief, and just what it means to exist as an imperfect human being in an imperfect world. In fact, you don’t have to know anything about BDSM to get something out of this story. It started out as a serialized comic on DeviantArt and has since been collected in some truly beautiful editions.
You may be familiar with Stjepan Sejic’s work from his breakout hit Harleen from DC Comics, and if you thought his art was to die for in that book, you have got to pick up Sunstone. I think what I like about this series the most was how the more erotic scenes aren’t just there to titillate — they are really there to move the story forward and deepen our understanding of the characters and their relationships with each other. I think that’s what makes this story stand out amongst others.
