Book Review: “Sunstone: Volume 1”

Sunstone: Volume 1 by Stjepan Sejic ISBN: 978-1-63215-212-1 Image Comics, Inc.

I picked up the first volume trade paperback of a BDSM comic recently. It is called Sunstone, and it is a good read. Instead of over the top fantasy, it tells the beginning of the story of a first-time domme and her first-time sub. It is refreshingly honest; talking about the difficulty of finding people to trust. Because trust is the first thing, hell, it’s the only thing that makes this sort of power exchange possible. This is the first hint that this is not an exploitative lesbian spanking inferno.

It is a pleasant surprise to find a BDSM story that “gets it”.

The characters are complex, full people. They are sex nerds, they are nerd nerds, and the tale of these two starting to fall for each other feels realistic.

I am looking forward to picking up the next volumes. This series needs to be on my bookshelves.
