I remember reading this in a trade I had bought from a street vendor in new york city when I was in high school.

It was probably one of the first true 'adult' comics I ever purchased. Adult not because it had nudity, but in regards to the way that the characters interacted with each other. I really believed Dian and Wesley cared for each other.

The art was this fantastic combination of being intimate and sexual that counteracted a lot of the other adult images I have seen up to that point.

It's a little hyperbolic to say that a comic can change the way you view the world and especially women, but I always felt like this comic open my eyes to something else.

It's great to see these pages again, I still feel like I have that kiss to Dian getting out of bed series etched in my mind.

I need to check out if Comixology has this for sale.

Thanks for drawing this!
