After spending years away from music to renovate buildings and make films and visual artwork, Adult.'s Adam Miller and Nicola Kuperus couldn't have picked a better time to return. During the years between 2007's Why Bother? and 2013's The Way Things Fall, the kind of dark, spiky, synth-driven sound they'd been honing since the early 2000s – back when it was called electroclash – finally rose to prominence, making them seem less like outliers and more like trailblazers. That distinction seems even more fitting considering that Adult. have moved on from the wild-eyed noise-punk of their previous album on The Way Things Fall, which wears its accessibility as boldly as the duo took no prisoners before.
is an American adult comic book series, published by Palliard Press and later Studio Foglio. The comic is structured as an anthology of whimsical erotic fantasy and science fiction stories written and penciled by Phil Foglio; each story is inked by a different artist (in black and white), including among many others Matt Howarth, William Messner-Loebs, Frank Kelly Freas, Kevin Eastman, and Bob Eggleton. The comic was originally published in ten comic books, at which time the contents were collected into five graphic novel compilations published by XXXenophile Books. Each graphic novel also added a new story (generally a second look at characters from an earlier story such as the superhero Orgasm Lass and her four-armed male sidekick Foreplay). These new stories were compiled separately in a final, eleventh issue of the comic book; in 2000 a sixth graphic novel (with an all-new story) has been published.
