You all know of my insatiable love of both jizz and Russian history… but for the longest time I just couldn’t see how they could cum together… that was until I was able to slap my eerie eyeballs on the latest graphically embellished periodical about the insanely huge cock of that lovable wizard to the court of the Romanov dynasty; Rasputin’s Seed!
Picture this; a young woman studying abroad happens to encounter the severed and preserved phallus of the aforementioned Big R. On the dare of a jilted lover, our heroine attempts to take a selfie with the member well in hand… but that demon dong has a monstrous mind all it’s own, and one bit o’ beastly bukkake later Rasputin is back on the scene and ready to cause all manner of shenanigans via his newly acquired avatar!
As conjured forth from the aether by Andrew Saiger and Jason Keen (who also lettered and edited the terror tome) Rasputin’s Seed is like a mondo travelogue mixed with grindhouse sensibilities (yes, I realize the 42nd St. power is over 9,000) with a healthy dash of anime, outlaw comics, and Tromaville-level antics. It’s absolutely glorious in it’s absurdity, which you know is the highest of praise from yours cruelly!
Speaking of praise, artist Conley Philpott gives this thing an arcane artistic flare that hits that sweet spot between western comics and Japanese manga in a way few artists have mastered (like for real, it’s Philpott and Adam Warren… some others get close, but these cats just get “it” to perfection, ya dig!)… and that makes this book look like 666 million bucks!
So, is your appetite well and truly whetted for this sinister shit or what?!!
If so, you can head right here and read the entirety of issue one, as well as the first few pages of issue two (more pages are added regularly) now!
Also, be sure to slap a “like” on their Facebook page if you are down with what you see!
Director Andrew Cumming’s U.K. feature Out of Darkness (originally titled The Origin) is a magnificent-looking slice...
