Gay Comics Documentary Announced

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — “Dirty Sexy Comics,” an film upcoming documentary that takes a look at gay erotic comics has been announced.

“I've loved gay erotic comics since first seeing a copy of ‘Gay Heart Throbs’ at my local comics shop. I was too young to buy it then, but I never forgot it,” filmmaker Robert Chandler said.

He added, “The stories I read in these erotic comics weren't just a quick thrill to me. I thought about them. I revisited them. I re-lived them when I closed my eyes at night. They were as complex, beautiful and wonderful as any of the mainstream comics or graphic novels on my shelf. I felt so privileged that these men told me their stories. Now I want to tell theirs.”

The film is set for a 2016 premiere and will focus on the comics, past and present, tracing the roots of the medium and finding the giants of the industry.

To contribute to the movie’s Kickstarter campaign visit through Nov. 30.
