The Kinsey House

The Kinsey House: A Penny Dreadful Review 

            Comics aren’t just for children. They can and often do deal with adult themes. The Kinsey House is one that is most definitely not safe for work. There is a version that is not quite as graphic, but still might not be everyone’s cup of tea. Indeed, it is not my usual flavor, but I enjoyed it quite a bit!
            Oren Peters needs to find work and fast if he wants to avoid being drafted into the military. He accepts the first suitable job offer, which was perhaps not the wisest thing to do. Oren’s new employer is the mysterious Mr. Kinsey, who lives in a mansion populated by very attractive servants. Mr. Kinsey services the town’s clockwork and seems to be haunted by a sinister shadow being. I suspect something sorcerous may be occurring. Mr. Kinsey has certain needs of the flesh, which his attractive staff is obligated to fulfill. This is why this comic is not safe for work.
            I like the art in this comic quite a bit. The character designs are all very different – it would be difficult to mistake anyone for anyone else. The colors are rich, the anatomy is, er, quite realistic and lovely, and the settings are lavish.
            I give The Kinsey House four point five gears out of five.  There is some nudity and adult themes, so it may not be for everyone, but if you are brave enough to read it, I feel sure you will enjoy it.
