Unnatural echoes sentiments of Black Mirror with elements of real-world totalitarian plausibility exemplified through birth and mating control, as well as overtaxing those few who dare to be different, stretching the populace into poverty.

While this all consuming and thought provoking story draws comparison to current day events and spotlights the strength of diversity, it's a fun and wholly entertaining light erotica with fantastical elements which steadily build each chapter into an epic cres

Wow!
È stato un colpo di scena dietro l'altro e la storia si è rivelata essere completamente diversa da ciò che pensavo. La graphic novel, sin dall'inizio, sembra voler essere una denuncia alla società moderna, tutti gli animali devono infatti procreare solo con esseri della stessa specie, devono sposarsi entro i 25 anni e il loro unico scopo deve essere quello di mandare avanti la specie. Tutte le relazioni tra specie diverse e, peggio ancora, tra lo stesso sesso sono definite contro natura e qu

Diese Graphic Novel hat mich positiv überrascht! Auf Empfehlung einer Freundin habe ich sie mir ausgeliehen und empfehle sie hiermit weiter.

Wir finden uns in einer Welt wieder, wo jeder ein Tier ist. Das Gesetz verlangt, dass man sich nur innerhalb einer Rasse fortpflanzen darf und die Regierung hat sogar ein Programm entwickelt, mit dem Singles ab 25 ihren perfekten Partner gematcht bekommen, um die Reproduktionsrate hoch zu halten.

In dieser Graphic Novel folgen wir der jungen Schweinedame Lesl

Questo fumetto, il primo che leggo dopo una pausa durata anni, mi ha colpito in maniera estremamente positiva e mi ha portato a chiedermi perché io non sia tornata prima ad approcciarmi a questo genere di narrativa!
Di Contro Natura mi è piaciuto praticamente tutto: la trama, i personaggi, lo stile del disegno, i colori, le atmosfere, i colpi di scena. E' un fumetto che tratta di tematiche molto importanti come quelle della sessualità e dell'accettazione di sé in una maniera che ho trovato davv

My review was first posted on Northern Plunder, you can read more of my reviews there too.

Why did I pick up Unnatural? CUTE GOTH PIG GIRL.

I didn’t even read the synopsis but I ended up being surprised by the route this graphic novel took and I really enjoyed it.

Surprised because the opening pages were uh, a nsfw sex scene! Which actually turned out to be Leslie – main characters – reocurring fantasy dream.

Wait, please don’t cut away because you’re like Lauren please? Stop with the NSFW graphic n

ok look hear me out

the set-up isn't exactly original -- the message is good, but it's one we've all heard before, and it's wrapped up in Black Mirror vibes, but with...you know, furries

but hey, the closer towards the end of the first volume i got, the crazier the story got, plus, the artwork's 11/10

also i'm a sucker for all the horny pig-girl covers they've been doing for the individual issues, so what wanna fight about it

3.5. Stars

Mirka Andolfo has definitely crafted quite the interesting story here. The intrigue builds up until the last issue in this volume and the end reveals a situation that will be very interesting to unravel. Very much looking forward to the rest of this series

So I heard about this comic through the artist Stjepan Sejic, and seeing as I am a big fan of his, I just had to check it out. I couldn't prioritize it, though, with life as it was, but now things have shifted and I really believe things will be better, and so I allowed myself the expense of buying this comic.

It was... an intense start to the series.
You're hit in the face right away with this world that is like our own but also so wrong. It has taken everything bad from our world and blown it

Don't judge a story by it's cover or intro issue. There's something there that lurks beneath the surface. This first volume poses many questions.. I wonder if the next one answers them? I hope so.

Issue 001 - Read 7/9/17 - Read this after my cousin recommended it to me. He said he wasn't sold on it at first because he's not into furry stuff, and I said the same, but he gave it a try and liked it, so I did too. The premise is a little weird with the anthropomorphic animals, but it seems really interesting so far, so I will be continuing.

Well, it ovecomes one of my objections to furries and anthropomorphic animal comics, in that the characters do look cute but animalistic, as against ungainly and overly literal in a way that just slaps you in the face with the impossibility of the conceit (seriously, I still have flashbacks to the necks in Wild's End). But the story, dear heavens... Leslie, our lead pig-girl, lives in a society where the single are taxed, the government finds you a suitable partner once you hit 25, and homosexua ...more

Ich habe lange mit mir gehadert, ob ich diese Graphic Novel kaufen sollte. 19,99€ sind wahrlich kein Pappenstiel. Aber,Gott, was bin ich froh, dass ich da s Geld ausgegeben habe. Das Buch ist einfach grandios. Die Aufmachung ist wunderschön. Das Hardcover ist sowas von toll illustriert. Detailreich, farbenfroh, kontrastreich...

Bought it for the sexy pig lady, stayed for the Black Mirror styled plot. I was super impressed here. Suckered in by some good ole' French cheesecake, I found myself totally on the edge of my seat, racing through the pages looking for my dramatic conclusion. The book leaves us pretty out in the open and no such ending arrives (in this volume) but there's a thriller at Unnatural's heart worth exploring. There's a lot to love in this package, I'm excited for more!

Andolfo's art is amazing, and her characters each have a great look in this weird anthropomorphic dystopia. Leslie Blair, a pig, is such a wonderful character. We get to know her pretty quickly, and her friends Trish and Derek. There's a lot more happening than we know or get in this volume, but I will definitely get volume 2 when it is available. It kind of has a Saga feel to it.

It doesn't need to be so overly sexual to get the story through to the audience. The overly sexual content just makes the comic look cheap when it has a good, interesting story.

Una storia verosimile, ben descritta con colpi di scena davvero scioccanti.
La costruzione della scena si svillupa velocemente e in modo eccezionale. L'arte e' bellissima.
Non vedo l'ora di leggere il prossimo volume.
Vedro' anche di leggere il Sacro/Profano.

Als ich das Cover auf Arbeit gesehen habe, bin ich einfach hängen geblieben. Ich mag Geschichten in dennen Tiere wie Menschen handeln und uns damit einen Spiegel vor die Nase halten.

Die Handlung hat schon im ersten Band viel Spannung aufgebaut und wirkt dabei sehr wie ein Thriller, der immer mehr an Fahrt auf nimmt. Unser Heldin ist mir sehr sympathisch, vor allem weil sie das ein oder andere Kilo zu viel hat. Was es mit ihren Träumen auf sich hat, gibt ein schönes Rätzel auf sich und ich bin s

If you're lucky, you might find a book with a rollicking great set-up, such as a fantasy world where someone is snatched away while on a government-sanctioned date, for nefarious reasons that all seem to hark back to a near-mythological time and place. If you're lucky, you might get a read that talks to you of the current state of affairs, where the problems people find in being themselves are brought to the fore by use of a dystopian society frowning on anything but heterosexual relationships. ...more

Avevo adocchiato questa graphic novel due anni fa a Lucca, ma mi sono decisa a comprarlo solo in occasione dell'uscita del secondo albo. Conoscevo l'autrice per la celebre serie romance/commedy "Sacro e Profano", che mi aveva divertita come non mai. Stavolta, però, ci ritroviamo davanti un lavoro differente da tutti gli altri e, secondo me, perfino superiore.

I thought this was pretty good. The art intrigued me enough to pick up the first couple of issues, even though I am not at all a fan of anthros. The coloring was just so pretty and the content looked sexy.

The main character is a "piggy girl," as the author calls her. She keeps having erotic dreams about a wolf. But she is trying desperately to put it out of mind, because in this world, it is illegal to have a relationship out of one's own species of anthro, or to be in a same-sex relationship.

In this first-issue graphic novel, Italian writer and artist Mirka Andolfo presents an anthropomorphic fantasy world where relationships between species is forbidden, as are those between same gendered couples. Such things are, of course, UNNATURAL.

The main plot follows Leslie, a very round and juicy young pig girl who aches for the adventure of forbidden passion with the big, bad and dangerous wolf. Unfortunately for Leslie, the Reproductive Center has other plans, and has instead paired her wi

Li como edições avulsas.

A história é intrigante. Um mundo onde o relacionamento interespécies é considerado contra a natureza (assim como relacionamentos entre animais do mesmo sexo e da mesma espécie). Nesse contexto, há forte coação governamental para o casamento espontâneo até os 25 anos de idade. Após isso, vira uma política de governo obrigatória - com direito a recebimento de dinheiro, baixa de impostos e os bons olhos da população.

Esse é o plano de fundo da vida de Leslie, uma garota porc
