    1. If I catch you reading Fifty Shades of Grey, I am going to politely remove it from your grasp and hand you a copy of Sunstone instead. And if you’re into great characters and wonderful, sweet, funny romance stories that explore sexuality, then I am also going to hand you a copy of Sunstone.To be clear, this is a story that heavily features BDSM, but I want you to set aside any preconceived notions you have about that and read it anyway. First of all, it is an incredibly beautiful, informative, [...]

    2. I got slightly disappointed when I started realizing that this is a contemporary story and not a fantasy one unlike I first thought. I was somehow sure it would be about two devils, Lucifers, Satan girls, name it. Bummer, since it definitely wasn’t.Simple story, but complex enough characters to make it interesting. The graphics were pretty too, so that played in its favour for sure. Plus, I’m not a huge fan of BDSM in books, yet I didn’t mind it at all in this. There was actually a ‘‘m [...]

    3. Sunstone was everything I wanted and oh so much more! I'm so pleased, I'm actually grinning writing this review. I laid on the floor in front of my bookshelves, read this, got up, came to my computer and started typing this review with a goofy grin on my face. It just won't go away! I'm so impressed! Stjepan Šejić worked on the end art of Rat Queens, Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N'rygoth, and I have to say that I wasn't that impressed with it. I was a little apprehensive to go into th [...]

    4. I'd really like to read Sunstone from the perspective of someone who isn't intimately familiar with BDSM culture. As a submissive myself, I went into Sunstone thinking it would "normalize" BDSM; it'd make BDSM seem "regular," so to speak, and demonstrate that kink culture isn't something to be frightened of, but rather, something quite romantic - personal, exciting, and deeply intimate. Reading it, I did think, "well, this is cute, and sweet, and charming and funny, and it sure does make BDSM se [...]

    5. A lot of great reviews have already been written on this work so I'll keep this short and point out my impressions as a non-BDSM lesbian who has triggers around exploitive porn.First off, is it exploitive? No.Does a male author/illustrator somehow adversely impact the depiction of a f/f relationship? No.Is this in the fantasy genre (i.e. vampires, demons, unicorns, dragons)? No. The cover looks like it may be but this is a contemporary romance in our everyday world.Is BDSM well represented? I th [...]

    6. Bullet Review:This was recommended, oddly enough, by my local comic bookstore guy - and he recommended it to me, not for the hot lesbian bondage sex but for the insane humor and narrative.You know what? He hit the nail on the head - this book is hilarious and charming, with the most adorable narrative voice I've read in a long while. I've never read any erotic comics before, certainly no lesbian BDSM, but this was absolutely charming and adorable!"Fifty Shades", eat your heart out!Side note: did [...]

    7. This was excellent. I saw the cover of this book and was intrigued, but I'll he honest, it looks a little like it could border on sexual porn more than tasteful BDSM. I was wrong. One of my friends read this and loved it, she said it was tastefully done and beautiful and I knew I had to try it. I'm so glad that I have This is the story of Ally and Lisa, two women who are both excited by the ideas of BDSM but have never had a lot of luck finding people to trust enough to practice it with. BDSM is [...]

    8. This is my first encounter with artist Stjepan Šejić and I have to say I enjoy his style. I really took my time with it, reading it in small increments and absorbing all the artwork.The story is about Ally and Lisa, two women who meet online over BDSM and start exchanging ideas about their fantasies. After two months of increasing engaging encounters they decide to meet in real life. The two straight women connect and become friends with bdsm domme-sub benefits and slowly realise they are not [...]

    9. This is an "it was okay", with the art being around 3*-4* (a bit too cutesy for my taste) and the story unfortunately so much less that it rounded to 2*.I'm afraid I was bored. The reason most likely is the same reason why a lot of other YA and NA bores me: I'm past that age and in general I'm not interested in many of the current problems, a lot of which are artificially pushed or caused by the media in my opinion.Next comes that as someone who's entered the lifestyle at around that age herself [...]

    10. Funny, sexy, sweet and all the eye candy you can handle!I generally am not a big fan of graphic novels but a friend recommended this series and boy am I glad she did. I wasn't really sure what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised when I ended up falling in love with the main characters.This is not just a graphic novel to stare at (half) naked women, the story line is absolutely captivating. It tells of how Ally and Lisa met through their shared interest in BDSM. While due to the absolut [...]

    11. Nooit gedacht dat ik een strip waarin BDSM centraal staat vijf sterren zou geven, maar zeg nooit nooit natuurlijk. Sunstone is zoveel meer dan alleen maar sexy times, hoewel dat er zeker een belangrijke rol in speelt. Het verhaal draait voornamelijk rond Ally en Lisa en hoe ze elkaar leren kennen via hun seksuele voorkeuren. Voor de rest gebeurt er weinig, maar meer moest dat echt niet zijn. De tekenstijl is echt schitterend en ik heb met veel bewondering gekeken naar hoe de prenten getekend én [...]

    12. While the artwork is outstanding and undeniably sexy, the story is fantastic. Stjepan Šejić is a great writer and a great artist, and is my probably my favorite right now.

    13. Waaaah ! I just binged-read all the volumes so I can't really give any specific about each volume today. I will do it next time I read them (and there will be one I can tell )To sum-up : The art is awesome. The main characters are so sweet. There is no porn vibes thank you sweet god. It's sensual, tender and beautiful and I'm so in love with all of it ^^.

    14. 3.5This wasn't really my favourite but I found the bonus content interesting and the art is pretty. The author's inspiration was a better story to me than the actual story though. There seemed to be a lot of writing for a comic, too, and I didn't feel enough of a connection to the characters to want to read all that. It felt like they were trying too hard to be awkward and likeable. I liked that the author tried to give meaning to things but it fell flat for me.Maybe I'd have a different POV if [...]

    15. I was a bit hesitant about reading this book, but it was highly recommended by a friend who's into BDSM as a good and sound view into that world.And I am glad I did because this book is, first and foremost, a book about nice, interesting and sometimes crazy people, who, in general are either deep into or exploring their own connection to BDSM. So no cheep titillation, just something positive about friends, trust and love. Recommended, no doubt to anyone who wants to know a little more about this [...]

    16. You can read the full review over at my blog:sonsofcorax.wordpress/2015Erotic Fiction isn’t really my deal. I’ve never dabbled in it outside of some really lame urban fantasy romance novels, and it is not a genre that interests me at all. But Stjepan Sejic, yes, I’m a huge fan of the artist. I got into his work through Artifacts for Top Cow and that quickly spiraled into an obsession with his work on Witchblade with all those gorgeous covers of his most of all, and then this year into full [...]

    17. For some reason, I've decided this is the cat gif review. (shrugs)Sunstone deals with what some people might call uncomfortable topics, but which will surprise no one who is acquainted with: (a) fanfiction(b) M/M romances(c) anime fan-girls I happen to be one of those people. So the point is that, other than the spectacular art and loving relationships, there's nothing surprising. If however, you were: (a) living under a rock/without internet(b) introduced to BDSM via 50 Shades of Anything (c) s [...]

    18. What a surprisingly sweet and delightful little book. Not sure if I'll read on. On one hand, curious, on the other, I kind of like where it ends. Also not sure if they are all at the library. But, we'll see. In any case, grateful to have come across something equal parts sexy, nerdy and adorable. I do struggle a bit with this art style in which women's bodies seem are air-brushy perfect.

    19. Warning: This book is SUPER NSFW or those who have an issue with naked ladies and BDSM. If this is your thing, however, read on!Sunstone is a lovely book. I'm just a huge fan overall, because I believe it's also an important one. It's super timely that this would get attention via the Image Comics blog because Fifty Shade of Grey just opened up in theaters, and while I'm not a part of the BDSM community, I knew something was off with 50 Shades. As in, how is it that he can get away with being so [...]

    20. This graphic novel is full of sex, fetishes and BDSM while being adorable? That's crazy to say, but I truly think it was a sweet and cute way of showing the development of a relationship between two women whose sexual attractions are not acceptable by society's standards. I loved how communication and awkwardness was portrait in here- it was very realistic!This was such a different and unique read, that mainly focuses on building healthy and honest relationship. I really enjoyed it, and I'm defi [...]

    21. I enjoyed this more than I expected to. The notion of an erotic graphic novel starring two women but written and drawn by a man could have gone so, so wrong. However, what's in here is a beautifully-drawn and tender - but not maudline - depiction of acceptance and curiosity about the BDSM lifestyle. What's refreshing about it, too, is that the characters are not stereotypically broken individuals. They are still depicted as having room to grow, and that is something.It's also pretty damned hot s [...]

    22. Wow. That escalated quickly. [ETA: The male character was so useless to me that I called him "Andy" throughout this review. His name is actually Alan. My bad.]We read this one for our Ladies' Comic Book Club, and I don't know what I was expecting from it. I kept hearing from my compatriots that there would be "a lot of lesbian BDSM!!!" but I didn't know what, if anything, else I'd find between the covers. So to speak. Wellere's not really a whole lot else, to be honest. Now, that might sound lik [...]

    23. This review originally appeared on my blog, Books Without Any Pictures:bookswithoutanypictures/20Remember how a few weeks ago I was raving about Monstress? Yeah, that book created a monster, and my budget for the month is kind of fucked because I decided I need to buy ALL THE COMICS. #noregretsThis one is called Sunstone, and I’m super impressed. It’s the story of two women who meet online and begin a BDSM relationship, but it’s also so much more. Lisa is a writer and has always wanted to [...]

    24. Does this comic have BDSM? Yes. Does it put Fifty Shades to complete shame? Yes. Do I very highly recommend it to anyone and everyone? Yes.Go read it. Because it's the quirkiest, most charming romantic comedy you'll ever read. Yes, there's sex, but it's never just about the sex. It's about these two ladies who are really into BDSM but have never felt super comfortable exploring that passion with someone else. But then they meet online and then in person and it's just so much fun. Both Ally and L [...]

    25. This was absolutely lovely!!Ally and Lisa have an acquired taste for BDSM, but sadly, they've never found anyone who shares said taste. Both girls resorted to a BDSM forum, which is where they meet and become friends. After months of skyping and chatting, they decide to meet and, you know see if things can escalate.The characters feel so real. They could easily be me or you or even someone you know. Nothing at all seems farfetched!!It has so many funny moments and you just can't help but root fo [...]
