BDSM And Love? – Sunstone Comic Preview

Share with your fellow Consumers!

We at Need To Consume are big fans of Stjepan Sejic so when the following press release came through my electronic letter box, I instantly had to share it with you, Consumers. This is certainly a little bit different from other comics we review and very much a NSFW article! The art layout is just stunning. How can you not love a double page spread across the back of a corset with two lovers on either side? However, should comics include topics like bondage & sex or should that be left to the adult industry? Let us know what you think in the comments after the article.

A webcomic sensation and #1 bestseller on Amazon, with tens of millions of views on DeviantArt, Sunstone by Stjepan Sejic is being published as a graphic novel in January by Image Comics/Top Cow. The story of two women who find love through their shared passion for bondage, Sunstone is poised to introduce readers to a new kind of S&M story, one that will surprise readers with the heart and humanity of its story.

Ally and Lisa are happy, well-adjusted young women, but they’re both a little lonely. Ally loves the creativity of being a “Domme” in her sex life but hasn’t found the right person to share it with. And Lisa… Well, Lisa loves to be tied up. When they find each other online, they know they have to meet. But bondage is all about trust, and even after they’ve explored every facet of their sexuality together, Ally and Lisa will find the ultimate test of this trust lies in three simple words.

Writer and artist Stjepan Sejic (Aphrodite IX, Death Vigil) has one word for the fan response to Sunstone: “overwhelming.” He attributes the success of his love story to its themes.

“I don’t just mean the obvious ones of fetishism and general sexuality,” he clarified. “In Sunstone, the main theme is in fact human nature. Sunstone has over time become a book showing the very human and understandable nature of fetishism and people responded to that.”

Sejic categorizes the comments he’s gotten from reader three ways:

  • I came for the art but got hooked and stayed for the story.
  • I’m not into BDSM but this made me understand it.
  • This story helped me make some sense of my own fetishism.

And finally, the comments Sejic says he “will forever treasure,” are notes from couples who thank him for Sunstone helping them share what they had been too embarrassed to tell their partners.

Sunstone will be available in all good comic book stores or online in all the usual places from 6th January 2015.
