Due in stores November 1, Manly is a hardcover full color gay-comic collection from German publisher Bruno Gmunder Verlag--written by Dale Lazarov, illustrated by Amy Colburn--with colors by Dominic Cordoba. Manly isn't just another hardcover color 'gay sex book'; it's a book about 'romantic sex' between men.

As always, Lazarov works without words - allowing the panels to speak for themselves. This is tricky to do if you don't have the right artist and lucky for Lazarov, he has Amy Colburn. Thank

Manly is beautiful. The book is divided into 3 stories, scripted by Dale Lazarov who wrote Sticky with Steve MacIsaac. The illustrations were done by Amy Colburn, who rocks, and color by Dominic Cordoba.

Each story has a uniting theme of men doing what they do best! The first story, Busted, is about a cop and an innocent bystander who helps out. After they both get awarded for their contributions there is a spark of attraction between them and it is all on! The second story is Clinch. Two boxers,

Recommends it for: Anyone who likes gay comics
Recommended to Bijan by: Evandro Roberto
It's really hard to tell a beautiful story only by illustrations. And yes, you've heard it right. It's done without saying a single word. Dale Lazarov and Amy Colburn have done magic for sure.
If you want to see this magic by yourself, don't hesitate to pick this book and looking at it.

During one chat some time ago, Dale Lazarov introduced his books. Before this, I would never have thought that 'comics' would appeal, or that I would see anything new. How wrong I was!
The tidbits with which he teased us, really caught my attention, to the point where I immediately ordered all three books.
I must say that I've added Manly, Sticky and Nightlife to my list of guilty pleasures. Even without words the story envisioned by Mr. Lazarov is wonderfully depicted with sometimes raw but alw

MANLY is a unique brand of gay erotica. It is presented as a string of images without any text, a comic that is most definitely intended for adults. The script by Dale Lazarov together with the piercing images by Amy Colburn present a story that is clear and detailed without needing accompanying text. It is easy to discern the intended story by way of the images that are strung together, but there is also a freedom by not being tied to dialog or description. The imagination of the reader is able ...more

MANLY is unique, interesting, and eye catching. Dale Lazarov has combined three different stories with a superb art, culminating in a book that offers raw sex appeal, romance, and whimsy. The three stories are told in large artistic panels without dialogue. There are no words to convey the meaning and plot, yet the actions of the characters offer no confusion or miscommunication. The lack of language barrier creates a wonderful set of stories that can be enjoyed by all fans of graphic male/male ...more
