    I'm actually much more interested after reading the article. I wonder if the title "Sex" will drive people away or attract them. I personally wouldn't have given it a second look if I didn't read the interview and am interested to see their take on "retired" superheroes. I suppose time will tell whether it will touch on what I hope it will or if it will feature superfluous sex just for sex's sake. It's cool to see Image backing titles like this and I agree with the disappointment in the big two not following suit. I understand we can't get "Sex" but their main branches are superhero centric and their indie-branches "Icon/Vertigo" are rife with issues but do produce good stories whilst constantly in a state of fear for being cancelled like many of their titles.

    Your kind of making his point for him. Europe has comics like this everywhere. This subject is not something that should drive away people or attract them. Sex is no more outrageous then having breakfast.

    I'm interested. I'm cool with the subject of sex, but this better not be fanservice-heavy.

    The fact that you even asked this speaks volumes, although I wouldn't say fun and exciting so much as interesting and engaging, but I'll go with the simple answer. Yes.

    Yes, but not in the context you framed it. Did you read the interview?

    The term 'European comics' always kind of bugs me. It should be 'European (except for the UK) comics'. Probably too long winded though. But anyway...

    I've pre-ordered the first issue of this, so hopefully it'll get off to a great start. Image is really drawing me in lately, so I'm glad to see myself being interested in more titles.

    Why? No one considers the UK as a European country.

    The European Union would disagree. I'm not actually too bothered, I just think it's funny the way people say it.

    But anyway, not wishing to derail the thread, was just a quick aside. Let's focus on Sex!

    Never heard of this writer before, so I can be neither excited or unexcited for him working on this.

    Sex is... a tricky thing for me in comics. I don't sex scenes particularly interesting and are rather dull, no matter how much you try to tell me there is some symbolism or deeper meaning in it. Scalped is probably the only exception to the rule, but even then I don't care that much for it. So, Sex here could easily become immensely dull unless done right in some fashion. If it doesn't succeed in the first issue, then I'm immeditally writing this comic off. Sorry, but this comic has to be spectular right off bat or no one will take it seriously.

    This does look pretty interesting. I particularly like the style and the way colour has been used in the presented pages.
