Women Write about Comics: Crying Freeman, Woman Slave to Desire! Sex, Sex, Sex [NSFW]

 cryingA link to a great article — reprint permission, understandably, was denied — about exploitation comic Crying Freeman. A comic that defined its era (80s Japan) with its over-the-top violence, sex, lust, and human desire on all levels. Go over to the Women Write about Comics site and groove on it. This is some great in-depth look from a Western perspective, but it does suffer a bit from a non-inclusion of Japanese culture, both general and manga. Both these perspectives might have given the reviewer a little more depth and understanding to artistic style and representation of the world of Crying Freeman (and indeed Japan), but the review is otherwise an intriguing read. http://buff.ly/1G6hmBF
