m/m graphic novel appreciation series: yaoi cookies (nsfw)



I had hoped to have another of my tastings or a guest post ready for you today, but unfortunately my life has been a bit blechy the last couple of weeks and I’m ill-prepared.

Instead, I decided to share some of the yaoi cookies which I’ve been collecting specially for a rainy day.

For those unfamiliar with the genre, they just might give you a sense of what some of the artwork is like, not to mention how explicit it can get. πŸ˜‰

This first image is from Wild Rock by Kazuza Takashima.
Talked about by Mary Calmes in her guest post for this series.

    Very nice. πŸ™‚

  3. That little line blocks out sooo much…. *eye roll*

    Side note: More Viewfinder & Crimson Spell available in scanlations now!

    I'm a member of the Ap Yaoi World Yahoo Group and they posted the links today.

  4. So long as there are no pink-haired, blubbering, emo ukes, I'm all for reading yaoi mangas!

    I loved yaoi in high school. Don't read too much of it anymore now that I'm in college because I've gotten tired of seeing shota (which I thinks is WRONG!), rape, and pink-haired ukes who cry too much.

    Right now, I'm reading a Korean manwah called: A Thousand and One Nights. The artwork is so lush and beautiful. I'm a sucker for bishies! πŸ˜€

    I was thinking the same thing as SVZ! Yeah, useful, that line… not.

  6. yum yum yummmmeeeeeee πŸ™‚

    Tam: We approve of the yaoi cookies. πŸ™‚

    Miranda: LOL! But you have to admit that it's a kind of censorship that any perve will really like. πŸ˜‰

    VC: “So long as there are no pink-haired, blubbering, emo ukes, I'm all for reading yaoi mangas!”

    I feel you, hun. Only so many eye rolls you can do before your eye balls either pop out or are your own personal version of a poker machine.

    I really like manwha. There's an edginess to it that you don't necessarily get in yaoi. I've never heard about this one though. Can you give linkities, VC?

  8. Kris says:

    Chris: Do we really care though? ;P

    EH: Indeed. *GRIN*

    This is one of my absolute favorite collections of yaoi pics:

    JenB: Oh, great post! Thanks for that link, Jen. πŸ™‚

  11. I think I need a cold shower after that last pic

  12. Kris says:

    You only think, KC? What's the matter. You feeling sick. πŸ˜›

  13. nichem says:

    I really like the yaoi pics. I tried a couple of the books, though, and I just couldn't get into it. :/

  14. Twimom227 says:

    *sigh* Now I think I'll have to go “read” Black Wade! Thanks!!

  15. Ingrid says:

    Nice ones Kris πŸ™‚

    I like to check out this: http://omgyaoi.tumblr.com/

    Richelle: It's not a genre for everyone that's for sure. I will be sure to post more yaoi pics for you in the future. πŸ™‚

    Twimom227: Sucker! ;P

    Ingrid: That's a site I visit a lot too. πŸ™‚

    It's a beautiful yaoi. Really. The writing is top notch. The stories actually have a MORAL (unlike most yaois that are just about sex, lol). The artwork is just so beautiful. I recommend this manhwa to any shounen-ai fangirl who wants something a little more “serious” and “dark.”

    I only have volumes 1-3 right now (I've read up to 5). But there are at least 6 out there, I think. Great series. Give it a look! πŸ˜€

  18. Kris says:

    Wow. That does look terrific. Thanks for the links, VC! I will definitely be trying it out. πŸ™‚

  19. orannia says:

    Thank you sweetie! I hope this week is a better one for you!

    And I love that first cookie!

  20. Kris says:

    Glad you liked them, Orannia. The artwork in Wild Rock is terrific. You should give it a read some time. πŸ™‚
