Yaoi Hentai 1

Rating: ♦♦

Yaoi Press is one of the first American comic companies to come out with hardcore BL. I have to give Yaoi Press mad props for sticking its neck out. It took a lot of guts to go against the Japanese BL machine. However, the quality of this volume of four stories is not what I expected…

“King’s Masterpiece” – This is the best piece in this volume, hands down. The story and art style are very professional. The sex is dirty enough that I seriously got into it. This is not a lovey dovey story (or collection, for that matter).

“Into His World” – I did not care for this piece at all. The art is, for lack of a better word, fanart-ish and, while clean, it lacks a certain finesse I’ve grown accustomed to. The story is jarring and weak. It’s like the author wanted to put everything into one story just in case she never got another chance to publish something.

“Wicked” – I wholly admit to not caring for the art style here. That didn’t stop me from liking the piece as a whole though. The characters are little too young looking for my tastes. The story is strong and filthy with a nice ending.

“Trach the Tentacle Monster” – A completely goofy, tongue-in-cheek piece. As anime/manga fans, we all know about tentacle monsters and this story just smashes all tentacle monsters together to make this uber-sex-monster with an attitude. It’s very funny and it’s easy to forgive the artist for amateurish style.

All in all, I don’t think that Yaoi Hentai is worth what Yaoi Press is asking ($12.95 US). I’ve seen better art online, actually. If you want to pick it up, get it used and you won’t feel like you got ripped off.
