Comic Covers Sunday: Adults Only

And now for something funny!  There aren't many adult comics that are funny, intelligent, and adult in nature.  Most of the time adult comics are just pointless exercises in... well adultness.  They are what they are.  But every now and then an adult book comes along that is something more.  And such is the case of Xxxenophile.  The series was created by Phil Foglio, of Mythadventures, Girl Genius, Phil/Dixie from Dragon magazine and many other great books! Phil brings his trademark humor to the adult market and it's wonderful to read.  The stories are fun, intelligent, and sexy too. 

There's no nudity on any of the covers, but just in case.... You can see the first one and then check below the link if you wish.

Xxxenophile #1, June 1989.
This is one of my all time favorite covers.  It's appeals to my inner geek. 

More below.

Xxxenophile #2, December 1989
This is another cover that just makes me laugh.  I am sure I could show this to a group of cows and have them moo, "yeah, been there seen that."

Xxxenophile #3, July 1990
And it was at this point that you knew the Foglio's were having fun.  The subtitle says it all "Just Plane Sex."

Xxxenophile #4, February 1991
And this month, more puns, "Safe Sex"

Xxxenophile #5, July 1991
Finally, coming back full circle from the first issue, the Bride of Frankenstein cover.  Godzilla first, Bride second.  This is nerdvana.

That's all folks, now go enjoy your Sunday!
