Reader discretion is advised. While obviously there have been comic books about sex in the United States since the beginning of the 20th Century, these comics were almost always simply Tijuana Bibles, childish attempts at drawing popular celebrities and comic characters in sexual situations to appeal to the lowest common denominator. When it comes to actual good comic books involving sex, the American comic book market has lagged well behind Europe and Japan, where comic books about sex are quite common. However, as the years have gone by, there have been a number of good pieces of comic book erotica released from American comic book companies and that number has been growing steadily in recent years as the taboo element of these types of stories has begun to fade although, again, not to the point where any of these comics would be safe to read at work.

Superhero Sex Secrets Revealed Through Comic Book Art | Widewalls

When it comes to comic book art, superhero sex is not something you see very often. In fact, you basically never see it, and this is mostly due to the fact that characters like Wonder Woman , Superman , or Catwoman are there to save the planet, and also because part of their audience is underage. In short, comics should be family-friendly, and thus erotica is only slightly insinuated through vague dialogues or particular facial expressions that only adults could actually understand. Because love and sex are an inevitable part of our lives, and art depicts life, there are times when our superheroes do end up making out, as part of their story.

COMIC BOOK ILLUSTRATIONS & ART

Much like comics themselves, erotic art is often dismissed in the mainstream as low-brow and trashy. Well, it's time to throw your taboos out the windows, because like any genre, the art of making things sexy has some pretty sublime and beautiful moments -- just check out the gorgeous and highly pornographic "Lost Girls" by "Watchmen" creator Alan Moore if you don't believe me. And he's not alone -- some of the biggest and most-respected artists and creators in comics have tried their hand at pin-ups or straight-up pornography over the years. Chris Sims of the Invincible Super-Blog even made a list. And occasionally Perry White, which is just weird.
It is a universal truth that whatever art form that is ever created, someone will adapt it for "scandalous" purposes soon enough, and comic books have certainly been no exception. During the early 20th century, black market X-rated comic books called "Tijuana Bibles" were prolific and the world of pornographic comic books has never ceased since, they've just become more and more acceptable especially comic book erotica, like Colleen Coover's excellent "Small Favors". However, when sexualized works of comic book art get mainstream attention, that's when you see the scandals occur, and they have been occurring more and more on a regular basis. Chuck Austen's comic book career began in an unusual place, as one of his earliest assignments was drawing Alan Moore's "Miracleman" for Eclipse Comics.
