A satiric riff on the era of Blaxplotation (think like "Black Dynamite"), Afrodisiac is an original graphic novel featuring the aforementioned title character on his various adventures, be it pimping, fighting Dracula, wooing countless women, or seducing death herself. This book has already gotten great reviews, so what did I think? I liked it. Why I liked it follows the cut...Wow. Just one artist illustrated this? Really? The style of illustration changes so often, it just shocks me. Brian Rugg is a great artist along with writer, and the other writer, Brian Maruca is great too. The book doesn't specify who wrote what parts, so I have to assume they worked together. The story is more mish-mash of various fake comic panels or covers with the occasional more cohesive story, but wow, that art!
4 out of 5 stars.
Afrodisiac via Amazon, I say you should buy it.
