«Don't overthink it.»
Ally and Lisa are your typical couple - they play videogames, go on dates, and indulge in extreme BDSM sex while awkwardly avoiding discussing their deeper feeling and desires. Okay, maybe the last bit isn't so typical. Regardless, as the two move further away from the realm of friendship and deeper into the intoxicating world of S&M, the bonds

Uh this series is great and I'm obsessed
Vol. 1:

Sunstone is a lesbian BDSM love story. If that's not your cup of tea, nothing I can say in this review will sway you to pick this amazing graphic novel series up. Luckily for me, this is very much my cup of tea and Sunstone will always have a very special place in my heart, even though this volume wasn't my favorite.

This volume heavily talks about the importance of communication with your partner. Some people view BDSM as a getaway or a fantasy from their real life, but others want to

Oh, Sunstone! My love of loves. Crown of my comic book/graphic novel collection. Truly, you deserve all my praise and adoration...

Let me start by saying I love reading comics that make me feel good, but I love comics that make me feel an entire range of emotion even more. Sunstone does both, and this volume in particular pulls the heartstrings in every direction, in the best possible way. I can't say enough about Stjepan Sejic for the work he's done with this story and these characters. It's

This series is fast becoming a firm favourite of mine. I read the first one very recently and really wanted to get the second so as soon as I visited a comic shop it was my first purchase. I truly think that this storyline is one of the best representations of BDSM relationships I have ever read and one of the most genuine and true. This is an erotic and explicit series, but it's also beautifully illustrated and comes across as quirky, loveable and fun. Trust and safety are things that people ...more

Bullet Review:

This book is more about Ally and Lisa's developing relationship - and Ally's background with Alan and Marion.

Perhaps not quite as good as volume 1, but honestly, these characters are so cute!

This damn series

I can’t even contain myself, or summarise my love for this graphic novel. It surpasses expectations tenfold and was written for me.
Don't let the cover fool you. Behind that domme is the sweetest geek ever. What a cute couple (Lisa and Ally)...angsty as hell. Love this series.

Sunstone Vol. 2 had mostly the same problems as it's predecessor.

Weird panels, too much exposition, forced drama, fluctuating quality of art etc.

I enjoyed this volume far more than the previous one though. So what changed for the better this time round?

1. A freaking great and effective opening spread. Even the borders of the panels allude to the building of trust between the couple. The motion is almost visible, like that of an animatic, the art is solid, even the text is placed perfectly and

I'm so glad I bought the 1st volume of this without even bothering to see what the subject was, since it would likely have put me off. Why? Because on the surface it's a graphic novel about a lesbian BDSM love affair – so it sounds like pure porn, right? Nothing could be further from the truth. Yes, there's occasional toplessness, or even near-nudity, and certainly the occasional outfit is provocative and, sure, alluring. But that's not what this story is about. It's about love, and trust, and ...more

It was just as good as the first volume, I love how sexuality is portrait in this graphic novel. This one focused on meeting new characters, showing Ally's past and more relationship development between our two main characters. It was such a great continuation! I'm already excited to read the third volume!

This series summarized in one sentence: everything that 50 Shades should have been.
I enjoy how much time we spend getting to know our protagonists' backstories and yet there are still great sexy times and relationship growth.

Not as great as Volume 1 but I will continue this series. I really enjoy all the panels and scenes with Ally and Lisa. They are my favorite characters with Alan coming in second. I liked the fact that we learned more about Lisa and her past. It was nice to see Ally comfort Lisa and try to reassure her that the rope issue with her previous sub wasn't her fault.

I really didn't care about the other background characters. Not sure how they will come into play but I really don't care about them. I

I'm totally smitten with Ally and Lisa. The story and characters are beautiful and I love seeing their relationship develop. So beautiful. And so sexy. Talk about goals.

Recommended to Zedsdead by: Next in series.
v2 continues to dazzle. Šejić has amazing expressive control of his characters, wonderfully nuanced facial expressions and body language. And he even makes the dead space between panels interesting and relevant.

Here he delves more deeply into the culture, visiting a tony S&M club and introducing a number of new characters who span a range of immersion in BDSM, from hardcore practitioners and artists to moderately curious to “vanilla people”. We get Ally's backstory, her introduction to
Almost as good as part 1

Another absolutely stunning graphic novel by Stjepan Šejić. Just like Sunstone vol 1 this was full of sexy and funny banter. However where vol 1 focused on how Lisa and Ally met, this volume focuses more on communication and sheds light on Ally's past and how she became a domme. We get to see a more fragile side of her including the start of her relationship with Alan.

The only thing I wanted more of is the interaction between Ally and Lisa, because I just can't get enough

Whatever else may be wrong with comics at present, I'm sure this must be the first decade where lesbian BDSM could be played as a charming romance story, rather than for raunch or transgression. Even the more didactic scenes manage to be touching when they could so easily have come across as clumsy.

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 ^^.

I simply love the writing in this series!

Although, the artwork is fantastic, too! ;)
The second volume and this time less sexy times and more and more backstory. Which I loved, but still I wouldn’t mind even more sexy times.

After reading the first volume and falling head over heels with this couple, the art, and the story, I just had to continue reading to see if Ally and Lisa would stay together (given that we see them x years after I am going with a full YES) and if they would have the talk. As both of them seem to like each other more than the other is thinking. Plus, I hoped

This might be a bit weird to write about a BDSM series, but this is so damn cute.

In this installment of Sunstone, Vol. 2, we delve deeper into the past of Ally and Lisa, who has just recently begun a BDSM relationship - but who are both feeling more than just the sexual buzz. It's not only interesting to read about, but also actually very educational for people who are interested in the BDSM community.

Spoiler alert; it's all about trust, you guys.

I've read quite a lot by Stjepan Šejić by now,

3.5/5 Stars

I enjoyed this. Just not as much as the last one. It was very talky (I know that that is not a word, but that is the only thing I can think of to describe this). I don't mind that, but there was SO MUCH DIALOGUE. It just was about the character's past, and everything, and like great, but ok. I just liked the last one better.

How is this series so good? How is a series about a female/female BDSM relationship SO GOOD??

I’m trash for this series. These characters are so complex and you learn so much about the art of BDSM. Wow.

The second volume in the Sunstone series picks up a few days after the first one ends. While many things are similar - such as the gorgeous artwork and the captivating characters - other aspects have changed significantly. The cute, happy, and fluffy scenes were largely replaced with downright creepy ones about the risks of unsafe BDSM. Rather than a positive story, you're left with one with a darker tone. It seems to me like the author wanted to add in some drama to perhaps draw in those people ...more

A comic a day keeps the doctors away, or something?
Anyway, got to album 2 today. The reading became a little choppy as I had help setting a closet up, and so I had to help every now and again, even if the help - the hubby - preferred me to stay in my new rocking chair and read. That didn't ruin it, though, and that may be because I've read it before and knew what was coming, so the suspense was real, or it may just have been the story and how captivating it is.

The second volume holds up just as well as the first. It's not fast paced, but the characters are again so genuine and so sweet that I just want to give them all hugs. The sex is sexy without being smarmy, and the dialog sounds like real people, if maybe more polished than extemporaneous. The artwork continues to be beautiful and sleek, although it would be nice if it occasionally broke out of the heavily red palette that saturates every page. My friend at work said this series is too wordy, and ...more
4.5/5, half a star off because some of the exposition-y dialogue seemed a tiny bit awkward and not like something someone would actually say, and it pulled me out of the story.
