Pornhounds

Gram Ponante
Pornhounds is a comic book by New York-based gentlemen's magazine writer Sharon Lintz about her days working for San Francisco's defunct Spectator, a legendary broadsheet filled with porn reviews and escort ads.

If you read Lintz' writing you might be struck by its similarity to that of former AVN editors Susie Mid-America and Rebecca Gray in its stream of consciousness/you'd better fucking listen style.

In several stories illustrated by artists like Ed Piskor and Sophie Crumb, Lintz describes her former co-workers - Pornhounds - at an unnamed magazine, including people eerily reminiscent of director David Aaron Clark and Adam Film World editor Anthony Petkovich, both of whom wrote for the Spectator while Lintz was there.

"She took a bite of my sandwich," Petkovich confirmed recently.

Lintz spends the comic learning to quit worrying and love the fact that she is a porn writer.

"For the first time in years," she writes, "I'm not obsessively thinking about what else I should be doing. I love this job."
