Sticky Graphic Novels publishes literary, wordless, gay erotic graphic novels for an international audience. They give a context of relatedness to the sexuality—romantic, intimate, congenial, playful, raucous, etc.—depending on the story, and offer a diversity of men that opens the conversation for what’s attractive and/or masculine and/or sexy, instead of limiting it to narrow types and tropes for gender performance.
The bodies, while still erotically-exaggerated, are within human possibility. They are affirmative and cruelty-free without being cheesy or tame. The work is beautiful and well-crafted, as sequential and illustrative art, not just as gay sex-positive comics. Sticky Graphic Novels allow the reader to participate in the story by filling in the gaps between the panels and the dialogue and captions they lack because they are wordless comics. The comics show the sexuality and relationships happen in a social and cultural context rather than alienated from it.
