Available for the first time in book form, Brothers of New Essex collects original art from the author's self-published, popular erotic zine, Belasco. Comprised of over ten years of illustrations, this sexually explicit graphic novel explores black gay sex life - from basketball courts to house parties, from Sunday church service to the corner bar - in the tradition of gay art icon Tom of Finland.

Not since Tom of Finland has a gay erotic artist created a visual world so entirely his own as Belasco's. But if Tom's beefy heroes looked as if they might slip into fluffy bedroom slippers at home, not so with Belascos streetwise young studs, who often ease into a hot session of male-male love with a quick uppercut and a chokehold. The characters, drawn from Belasco's several cartoon chapbooks, represent a range of gorgeous black male styles and types, all of them with cut physiques and zero inhibitions. Chief among them is Boo, the "fine-ass modern-day Mandingo" who first appeared in serial form in GBM. A construction worker with an endless appetite for the nasty, Boo is a bottom's dream come true. No one says no to Boo, and no one wants to. Other highlights include two college freshmen's first night at a sex club called Afreakas, and "What Grand'maw Saw," the closest thing to a love story in Belasco's cartoon town of New Essex. --Regina MarlerFrom the Back Cover:
"Many fabulous young talents have burst upon the male erotic art scene in the past decade. Among them, none is more stunning than Belasco...The stark blacks and whites of his panels bubble and seethe with the speed, the intensity, the passion of his creative moment. Boo has taken the world of gay male comic strip heroes by storm."-Bill Schmeling/The Hun
