Comment: Corben’s own story is made for possible men’s magazine, but was never sold though. How the revisited version differs from the reprinted original version, is that Corben makes kind of bra- and pantie-tattoo on a girl. Coverings are visibly fake, but they cover not much. Corben’s art is painted very good; he is focused wisely on bodies. Girl’s last quote, “Let me lick your wounds -” “- and other stuff!” is shortened as “Let me lick your wounds -“.
