‘I think I saw something I shouldn’t have…’ – Alfie, 2010-Present

Happy Monday everyone! I know it’s the start of the week, but don’t fret – your neighbourhood Librarian is here and she is ready to get reviewing. This week I’ve decided to use the break that Incase is on to give them some props for AlfieYou may remember when I spoke about them previously, and here we are to finally review their comic! This has been in the pipeline for a while, I’m sorry it’s taken so long!

DISCLAIMER: Alfie is 100% an adult comic, with lots of adult themes, including depictions of sexual acts. I will make this review as family friendly as possible, but be warned – clicking to the comic (even the first page) leads to scenes of an adult nature. Let it be known that I completely warned you that, by the second page sexual acts have begun… Well, if you’re still here that means you’re old enough to read this…

Page 1 of Alfie, she’s watching something VERY adult! – Alfie, Incase, 2010-Present

Alfie is about a halfling who, funnily enough, is called Alfie. She lives in a small village with her mother and father, and goes about her day as if it were no other. It’s Spring of the year 1147, and a human and elf caravan has come to the small Halfling town on Pickering.

Alfie accidentally stumbles upon her best friend Melly getting uh… very friendly with one of the humans, whom she is cheating on her husband with. What you see to your left is the first page of Alfie and that is exactly what she is watching. As I said before, you were warned this was adult.

What I like about Alfie is, not only is it gorgeously drawn, but it uses a fantasy setting (which is a completely fledged world that Incase has written, might I add), it develops it’s characters through their sexual exploits with others, and how they get into them. For instance, Alfie’s mum, Vera, gets into a storyline about making an elf some implements for his own pleasure. Through this story we see her grow as a character; we see her hatred for her husband and why she hates him, we see why she thinks Alfie is a failure, but also why they’re very alike as people.

All in all, I really like Alfie, and I’m sorry that Incase has had to take a hiatus. Hopefully they feel better soon. Here’s a link to that page and their explanation. They seem like a cool person, and I wish them all the best.
If you’re old enough to, really do give Alfie a read. Yes, occasionally the sex is gratuitous but you will find characters you love and those you hate. I am, and always will be, team Marco!

Do you like online comics? What about ones that explore sexuality and relationships? Think it should be kept off the internet or open for everyone to share? Leave a comment down below!

‘You also enslave women. This is not illegal but is displeasurable to me’ -Kill Six Billion Demons

One good thing about the internet is the webcomic. No longer does an avid comic book reader need to venture out of their house; they can get a free, indie comic right from their bed. There are quite a few around – for instance, I avidly read Questionable Content, a webcomic about a group of friends with their robotic/AI companions or Alfie, a completely NSFW comic about a halfling leaving home for the first time. But today I wanted to bring you a review of one I had never heard of until just now; Kill Six Billion Demons, by Abbadon (Tom Parkinson-Morgan). Due to it’s popularity, you can now buy a copy of Tom Parkinson-Morgan’s comic, which you can purchase with your local comic book shop.

Kill Six Billion Demons takes the reader on a rollercoaster of a ride, even within its first chapters. The story begins in our universe, and Allison is about to have sex with her creepy boyfriend (trust me, he is really into weird things). All of a sudden a demon turns up next to her bed, kidnaps her boyfriend and transports her to another universe via the key in her forehead. I never said that any of this story made sense when written down. When she is transported to the other dimension she obviously has no idea where she is – nor what anyone is saying.
For some reason, mostly because I am unsure it was actually explained, but she can suddenly understand what they’re all saying via her head-key.
Even though this mini-explanation makes it sound pretty confusing (I seem to have lost the ability to explain things this week); it’s really interesting! I love the ideas of travellers from other worlds getting stuck and wanting to get home.

I felt like there could have been a bit more character development for Allison before throwing her into a situation like that. Normally you want to be able to attach yourself to a character before bad things happen to them, and because if this I kind of felt like perhaps Allison deserved all that’s happening to her? I don’t know any better to assume otherwise.

All in all I recommend it for a free read. What do you have to lose? If you love it you have years worth of comics to catch up on – if you don’t then you’ve wasted no money!
