“The reader can’t help but feel they’ve been granted a delectable sneak peek into the debauched world of impossibly virile, nasty-as-hell alpha males.” – Ed Luce, creator of Wuvable Oaf
Gengoroh Tagame (born 1964) is a legend in gay comics throughout the world and in the American underground, where loyal fans have quietly shared foreign-language editions of his groundbreaking work in the outermost edges of bondage and pornography. Beyond the comic book format, Tagame’s original artwork has been exhibited internationally and paired with the works of Tom of Finland. Tagame was also the founding Editor and Art Director of Japan’s most widely circulated gay journal, G-Men.
