Entartete Shota – the new boy sex comic!

I’m immensely proud to announce the birth of my latest project Entartete Shota – a boy sex comic by Japanese manga artist Tsukumo Gou, translated to English by myself!

It’s been a long process to search out and contact potential artists for Entartete Shota. You know how picky I am – only the best would do, and I’m happy I did find the best one (and more are on their way!). I’ve negotiated in Tokyo (twice), designed the magazine in Berlin and finally supervised the printing of it in Prague. It took some months, but now the West is finally ready for the genre that rocked Japan.

Shotacon (shota) comics are drawings of young boys having sex. The genre is popular among male as well as female readers in Japan, and the artists too are of both sexes. The girl equivalent is called lolicon (loli).

Even though no real boys are involved in shota comics, there are countries where they are illegal. Wikipedia has a good page called The legal status of cartoon pornography depicting minors. Please read it if you’re not sure of the legal situation in your country! I will not be able to answer any questions regarding this.

If the first issue of Entartete Shota is a success, I plan to publish a new issue twice a year.

Ready to write publishing history with me? Then order your copy now! (There are some sample pages there as well.)

By the way, the format is exactly the same as for Destroyer, so Entartete Shota will fit well in your collection. 🙂

People living in Sweden can order Entartete Shota at Sweden’s biggest book shop Adlibris, or read it at the National Library for that matter. Daily newspaper Expressen’s culture editor already wrote about it (she defended the comic despite disliking it), and Johanna Sjödin blogged about it.

There are 500 copies. It’s time to let the beat rock!

    Why did you turn down the tv interview by the way?

  2. Karl says:

    A combination of reasons. One of them being that I have learned from previous mistakes.

    Hi, I could make an ePage / eBook out of that manga so you could offer it as download instead of posting it. Just let me know, if you are interested in a cooperation. I think your readers would like that idea!

    Thanks for your offer, Richard, but Entartete Shota already is an eBook.
