Silver Sprocket is an independent publisher who has been putting out some stellar works. "Your Black Friend and Other Strangers," has garnered a lot of press to give one example of a hit book they have, but I'm going to talk about another recent release that I found both insightful, creative, and extremely erotic. That book is, "No Better Words."
"No Better Words," is a short original graphic novel by Carolyn Nowak described by her as, "Poetry+Porn." It focuses on a young woman dealing with her attraction to a man through expressing her desire as metaphors about loneliness and horniness that the protagonist herself admits could be considered either clever or terribly hokey--she really rails into herself for using the cliche of mazes. This book is gorgeously illustrated and quite introspective. Eventually she talks with the man she likes at a house party and they admit they both have feelings for each other.
"No Better Words," is a brisk read at 28 pages but is a fantastic comic that inspires thought, arousal, appreciation, and excitement. I would encourage anyone who likes well-written stories and/or erotic yarns to check it out.
5 out of 5 stars.
