He's also on his way to college, and drools over the sexual liberation he will no doubt face living in a coed dormitory full of hot babes. Unfortunately for Bud, things don't go exactly as planned--he meets the girl of his dreams, who won't give him the time of day. But just because he strikes out on his first attempt doesn't mean he won't keep trying to hit a home long as he doesn't drop the ball!. Bookseller Inventory # 2148256865

About this title


Bud Waterston is a decent looking guy in full hormonal bloom. He's heading for college, and imagines the sexual liberation he will face living in a dormitory full of other post-teens in full hormonal bloom. But like all best laid plans (no pun intended), nothing goes as Bud hopes or expects. His roommate turns out to be a closeted homosexual and all the good-looking girls in the dorm are interested in somebody else. When the girl of his dreams, who wanting nothing to do with him, joins the school baseball team, it inspires Bud to join, too-in an effort to prove to her she's all wrong about him.

From Publishers Weekly:

Although best known for his work at DC and Marvel, Austen's love of baseball, manga and the erotic potential of college co-eds are more on display in his first venture into OEL manga. The story follows Bud Waterston, a hormone-ridden teen and pitching phenom as he navigates his first year of college with his childhood buddy and wanna-be catcher, Manny. Manny's eager to join the school's third-rate team, but Bud's refused to play ball since his dad died. The two are quickly immersed among bikini-clad girls and hostile jocks, but it's Chrissie from across the hall who's got Bud's attention. She's pretty, quick-tempered and has got Bud figured for a perv. Add to this that she's team catcher and daughter of the baseball coach, and it's clear that complications will ensue. The conceit of scantily clad girls plus baseball might be juvenile, but Austen's real affection for his characters, even at their most hapless, comes through in the story's good-natured humor. The expressive, fluid drawings of hentai (adult manga) artist Otsuka give the story real warmth. Each interaction and splash page is tweaked for maximum, though still just-this-side-of-modest, erotic possibility, making this suitable for older teens and anyone who thinks baseball is sexy (June)
