Luxuria

Starting out with this trade I was not a fan, the story and art just felt like a poor imitation of similar European comics and I was bored must of the time, each sixteen page chapter was a chore to read. Eventually though I warmed up to the comic with issue #5 "Coldheart" and my views on it turned around completely. The final three issues in the trade were great reads and now I need to dig through my long boxes to find the rest of the series.

Casanova follows super spy Casanova Quinn on his sexy adventures on a parallel earth where he secretly replaced that earth's version of him who had died. A lot of the stories and action are reminiscent of old Nick Fury adventures and it is quite obvious that Fraction's E.M.P.I.R.E. and W.A.S.T.E. are parodies of Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. and the various evil organizations that it battles but it completely worked in Casanova.

Casanova fits a lot of action, adventure, comedy and fun into those short sixteen page issues and it does it very well.
