If you love slow changes…

I predict you will love The Venus Lily, a premium illustrated story now available on tgcomics.com. The Venus Lily follows the story of Matt Baxter, a hard-boiled private investigator in the mold of Dash Hammet’s Sam Spade. The story stands out for several reasons:

  1. Matt Baxter’s character is thoroughly developed before the change. I like this because it makes his journey more interesting and believable. We get to know him as a man, so his gradual change into a woman has more resonance.
  2. The change is, as the title of this entry suggests, slow. The writer is very patient and Matt’s body changes gradually, leaving him in denial as to what is happening for quite some time.
  3. Matt is skillfully maneuvered into some very feminine roles– no spoilers– that compel him to perform as his new sex. It’s interesting to watch him deal with being a woman in a man’s world.

In addition to the excellent story telling, the story features fantastic illustrations in a jagged, atmospheric style that perfectly compliments to mood and atmosphere of the text. The Venus Lily is one of the top TG publications of the year, and invites multiple readings. I would say that either the story or the illustrations are worth the price, and together they are a bargain! Check it out!
