Jim Rudd teams up with Brian Maruca to release Afrodisiac, a graphic novel published by AdHouse books. Afrodisiac is an homage to the blaxploitation films and comics of the 1970s and attempts to deconstruct the “mature” comics of that era by creating a character that represents the power fantasies of a post-1960s teenage male â€“girls, cars, and rebellion against authority. As you can see from the spreads, the book is extremely well done visually. As for the story, you’ll have to see for yourself. Available now through Amazon.
