the unique imagination of the Emmy Award winning director of
HBO's Todd Mcfarlane's Spawn and internationally acclaimed
erotic artist, Brad Rader, comes a visual road trip to rival
the one of the hugely popular Brokeback Mountain, but
with an even more interesting destination -- the answer to the
question, " What's mangina?"
As the viewer takes this cross-country run with All-American
Redneck friends, business partners and truckers, Harry and Tom,
he or she gets to experience the epiphanies and transformations
of the strange "life of the road." Harry's and Tom's
journey transforms them from fear-motivated sexual aggressors
into fearless people connected, through psychic / physical change,
meaningfully and sexually to each other, their families, and
the hymen of reality.
The striking climax and complex lesson could not be more directly
presented than in comic book form, done with respectful homages
to comic book masters of old such as Hergé, Milton Caniff,
Neal Adams, Alex Raymond and Bernard Krigstein, relying on the
power of art and creative page layout in order to show "true
love is where you find it."
Brad's book has already garnered rave reviews: "An essential
tonic for the shriveled imagination of our pathetic, conformist,
consumerist sheepbrained puritanical society." Gary
Panter, Designer, Pee Wee's Playhouse
"Brad Rader's erotic road trip is smart, hot, beautifully
drawn and surprisingly transcendent." Alison Bechdel,
author of "Dykes To Watch For" and "Fun Home"
"Besides being beautifully drawn, this fable of epic tolerance
disguised as trucker porn definitely held my attention."
