best NSFW review ever!

I haven't been paying as much attention to the comics industry as I used to. I had to stop buying comics completely, as me walking into a comics store was like an alcoholic walking into a bar. I couldn't just buy one, and I couldn't (and still can't) afford to buy a huge pile of them, and I'd inevitably wind up with a huge pile.

Because of this, I had no idea what Jim Balent -- an artist who first came to prominence drawing DC's Catwoman comic book in the 1990s, and one of the purveyors of the "bad girl" trend of that era -- was doing with himself these days.

Apparently, he's doing a comic book called Tarot, and by "doing," I mean writing, illustrating, publishing, and possibly also lettering (his wife, Holly Golightly, a.k.a. Fauve, does the color work). This link goes to a review of the latest issue (#53) from Chris's Invincible Super-Blog, and the review is AGGRESSIVELY NSFW -- mostly because the comic book is, and there are bits of the comic reprinted in the review.

It's also one of the funniest reviews I've read in a while. Go read it -- but not at work. *grin*
