Angelface is about Alan and Red, two friends who rob a jeweler in London and lay their hands on a small fortune. After a wild night of lustful celebrations, Red wakes up to find Alan (also called Angelface) has taken off with the loot! Not one to let his fortunes vanish, Red follows a steamy trail of clues to a ship headed to the States!
Meanwhile Allan screws his way across the ocean, but gets blackmailed by a gangster into working a mysterious con job. They transform him into a suave aristocrat and he arrives in Manhattan looking like a million bucks… but with a dangerous game ahead of him.
Beautifully written and illustrated by French artist Benoît Prévot, Angelface is a series set in an era of prohibition, swing, speak easies and loose morals! A fantastic journey that intertwines elegance with erotica no fan of Class Comics will want to be without.
That’s the official Class Comics sales pitch for Angelface #1. My personal impression of this book is that it is quite avant-garde. It is an incredibly charming period piece illustrated with complete attention to all the proper details by Benoit.
With this book, you really get the sense that Benoit Prévot is a master story-teller and a master eroticatician (yup – I just made that word up!), very much concerned with giving his audience the best of both worlds. This book excels at perfectly blending its exceptional narrative and story with all of its steamy male characters and sex scenes.
Those of you who always thought of the 20s as a period where people didn’t actually have sex will be happily surprised to find that in Angelface, EVERYONE screws everyone. The sex is HOT, the illustrations are superb and rendered in an almost classical flare, and the story is guaranteed to suck you in with ease.
I’ve had the pleasure of reading issue #2 in French, published by my pals at H&O Editions, and man, I have to tell you that Benoit weaves one crazy tale. This is one series I can’t wait to see unfold.
So while it’s my job as part of Class Comics to tell you how cool this book is, it’s my pleasure as a fan of erotic comics to gush about just how much I love this title and Benoit’s gorgeous artwork!
If you’re looking for a great balance of story and sex in your comics, I really recommend Angelface #1! So check it out, gang! I’m quite sure you’ll be glad you did!
