Fancy Froglin's Sexy Forest

The cover picture here should be able to tell you all you need to know about the internal contents of this ribald comic by James Kochalka. If you ever wanted to know what cute smut would look like, look no further.

Fancy Froglin talks like a kid but is most happy about one thing in his life--his boner. No really, I mean it. He invites other creatures to see it or touch it, right up to and including the reader. (This is a perverted frog that realizes he has an audience.)

Most of the book features the rise and fall of his emotions based on the status of his wang, with the dialog getting funnier and funnier as Kochalka takes the simple idea and hammers it home over and over again. By the time we reach Uncle Funky, who shows he has an amazing gag reflex, you just can't help but wonder how this ever saw print but are so very glad it did.

There's a coda story about Christmas that is all a set up for a simple sex joke that's also cute (and sick) but it just can't hold a candle to the over-the-top ribaldry that is the main story.

The press page for this comic actually lists all of the offenses of the book, which I find hysterical. I won't spoil it here by listing them, but let's just say I'm pretty sure just a casual glance at this book would cause John (cover Lady Justice) Ashcroft to keel over dead.

What makes this work so well is these are all the same cute drawings from Kochalka's other stories, as voiced by Andrew Dice Clay but on the reading level of Mister Rodgers. It's one of those things you declare to be so very wrong--but also so very right.
