RHODE ISLAND — After three years of operating on the “razor’s edge” of adult, web comic publisher DarkBrain.com has taken the plunge.
Some of the new offerings feature the voices of porn stars Tabitha Stevens and Raylene.
The company said that for the last two years it’s been telling sexy stories that stopped short of X-rated imagery, but now it’s “embracing its true destiny as an erotica-storytelling studio with no more self-censorship.”
To embrace its self-proclaimed "new and true" identity, DarkBrain is introducing DB Quarterly anthology magazine that showcases multiple edgy, erotic and engaging comics for adults.
The first 75-page issue of the quarterly download-only magazine, set to debut April 15 at DriveThruComics.com, is available for free and is intended to show how DarkBrain can tell a story without artistic limits. It will include stories from The Butcher, SORTAN-VALTA, Brandi Bandit and Pissy Pussy series.
Andrew Zar, publisher and owner of DarkBrain said, "It is our next step — to offer truly uncensored content and tell stories without limits. The new adult-only content will be raw, sexy and powerful. Frankly, I grew tired of the arbitrary and sexist limits placed on comic content — sexuality is reviled while evil and extreme violence are revered.”
In addition to the launch of DB Quarterly as a single-purchase option, the company has re-configured its website membership to an annual, all-access pass model for $45.
The pass entitles members access to the entire DarkBrain set of web comics and downloads. The publisher also plans to add new member-only content every month as well as a full set of new books.
Other changes visitors to DarkBrain.com will see effective today include a newly enhanced release schedule, an opportunity to read the first issue of any series for free and uncensored, a new login system for members only and an Age Check screen for general viewing.
