Comix

Modern Gentlemen is an anthology horror/comedy comic series published and distributed by Pleasant Productions that first appeared in 2007. Each issue features work from a variety of Australian writers and artists. The content of the comic is typical of Pleasant Productions: puerile, immature, offensive and hopefully funny. If you like dirty jokes, questionable morals and foul mouthed character, then this is the filthy rag is for you! Throw out your copies of Viz and go grab yourself an issue of Modern Gentlemen! Modern Gentlemen is available locally from Polyester Books, Sticky Institute and Minotaur. For everyone else, it's scattered across the globe at various locations, you may find it easier to buy it online.

"With Modern Gentlemen 3 it feels like the creators have hit their groove... The first 2 issues were great, but just felt like they were subconsciously aspiring to be an Australian version of Zap Comics from the 60s. With this issue I believe they are on par with some of those classics." - Digital Retribution

"It takes quite a lot to gross me out and leave me wishing I could un-see what has been seen. This comic certainly manages that." - Indy Comic Review

Issue 3 features stories and artwork from Andrew Gallacher, D. A. Jackson, Pierre, Captain Gorgonzola, Dexter Cockburn, Joe Coen, Ill Rubber Ducky, Robin Bougie and Jean-Luc Syndikas. The painted cover is by Pierre, with a back cover from Joe Coen. 44 pages, black and white interior. .
