I loved this. Super-hot at times, super-funny (unintentionally but in a good way) in others. For the right person or the right mood, this book can be gut-busting or nut-busting.

Here's the thing: especially if you read it all at once, the book is repetitive. It's basically threesome after threesome after threesome. The frames of each guy are practically identical: built, jacked, big-butted, strong-jawed, brawny guys (props for some diversity though). I do have to say I loved how this super-erotic I loved this.

The frames of each guy are practically identical: built, jacked, big-butted, strong-jawed, brawny guys (props for some diversity though). I do have to say I loved how this super-erotic leather-man series uses the same old gags and illustration ploys that Archie used. For example, the three triangles - those little small ones - pointing out of someone's head when they are alarmed or in pain. Or that there's a pile-up of people trying to get to one guy, but alas, he's standing outside of the pile-up looking at them. We're used to those triangles being over Jughead's head, or the pile-up as a Looney Tunes staple. Here though, the triangles appear when a guy is being fisted up to the elbow by surprise, and the pile-up is a massive orgy in a public park, big dicks and hairy balls every which way. Of course the initiator is standing by a tree with an exhausted look on his face, wiping what I'm assuming are the giant white cartoonish raindrops of cum off of his face and neck. And it was all written in the 60s and 70s.

Meaning: this is a marvelous time capsule and a historical document, lovely to read in order to bear witness to early-on groundbreaking erotic art. (Note: read the intro about the artist). It's lovely drawing truth be told, (a quick read no less), and it oscillates between being - I'll admit - incredibly hot, and unintentionally fucking hilarious (in a great way).

It's a quick read too. Each page is a frame. Anyhow: I'm just saying when a threesome starts, and another guy shows up in the background, then a foursome starts, then another guy peeks out from the bushes, and a fivesome starts, etc., until there's a conga line of ass-fucking...that's a five-star read for me. Throw in a Canadian officer handcuffing two guys together by the scrotum, and it's officially the most awesome thing ever.

Besides all the absurdity and bizarre sexual openness - I guess this was a fantasy-land of "anything goes" implicit consent - there's some stuff tucked in there that might not be for everybody in terms of being sexy or erotic, but it was both for me. Incredibly so at times. I got the best of both worlds on this one. Such a treasure. ...more

Nearly-wordless porn comics of hyper-masculine gay men. Lot of leather, mustaches, uniforms, boots, and exaggeratedly large features. Not a lot of diversity in the type of people shown. Lots of men and a couple of women having unapologetic, fun, proud sex.

Content notes: non-con, risky sex, public sex, many different kinks including BDSM and watersports.

Men, men , men, men and once again men are main heroes of short stories...how surprising...how good. Carefree Kake was roaming earth and fucked and getting fucked by various men. Yes all of them are muscled and had perfect posterior and looooooong you know what...of course mustache is included. It was fun to list that book. I think most macho gays should own the copy...aka... fashion adviser for "having fun" occasions.

Ok so technically I have the hard cover edition. This 30-something dollar impulse buy has actually been a great ice-breaker. The material is nicely presented; gotta love those classy folks over at Taschen. If you're a fan of ToF, this one is an absolute must.

The art is fantastic but the stories are pretty repetitive. 2 or 3 panels to establish the setting, sex, someone new shows up, more sex. Does a great job of what it sets out to do, though.

A leitura deste encadernado vem em tempo em que a produtora de filmes pornográfico gays, Naked Sword, está fazendo uma adaptação live action das aventuras em quadrinhos do personagem Kake, criado pelo maior desenhista de arte erótica gay Tom of Finland. Vale dizer que Tom of Finland não influenciou somente o sexo gay, trazendo mais à tona os fetiches com couro e botas de cano alto. Ele também desenvolveu todo um estilo de vida, que acabou refletido não só nas fantasias da banda de disco Village A leitura deste encadernado vem em tempo em que a produtora de filmes pornográfico gays, Naked Sword, está fazendo uma adaptação live action das aventuras em quadrinhos do personagem Kake, criado pelo maior desenhista de arte erótica gay Tom of Finland. Vale dizer que Tom of Finland não influenciou somente o sexo gay, trazendo mais à tona os fetiches com couro e botas de cano alto. Ele também desenvolveu todo um estilo de vida, que acabou refletido não só nas fantasias da banda de disco Village People, mas também no estilo "clone" dos moradores gays do bairro Castro, da cidade de San Francisco para que arrebanhassem mais "baits" nos seus "cruises". Cruises esses que são a dinâmica que rege os quadrinhos de Kake, que estão todos compilados aqui. São histórias sequencializadas de cruises que ocupam mais de um terço dos 26 quadrinhos aqui apresentados. Lembrando que essa compilação de mais de 700 páginas não traz toda a obra de Tom, mas de seu personagem mais lembrado, que é interpratado em Live Action pelo ator pornô Matthew Camp, cujo sobrenome, ironicamente, tem a ver com o estilo que Tom of Finland também ajudou a consolidar na América e que foi tornado célebre por Susan Sontag. Por isso e por tantas outras influências, existe uma fundação em Los Angeles dedicada ao legado de Tom of Finland. E nós, gay só temos a agradece por ter ajudado esse estilo de vida - leather, cruise, camp, clone, seja como for que se chame -, sair do armário em uma época quando pouco tinham a coragem de se assumir como tal. ...more

Lent my paperback copy of this to someone and never got it back... but that's fine. I love to spread the love. I only just picked up a new copy, this time in hardcover. That I bought it twice shows how much I enjoy Kake's adventures :)

Matimate recently reviewed a Tom of Finland book here. I knew of Tom of Finland because one of the Kake comics is featured in Erotica Universalis, although I can't remember if it was volume one or two. Anyway, I decided that it was high time that I reacquainted myself with the brawny, extraordinarily well endowed, promiscuous man and I wasn't disappointed.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes very masculine men in uniform getting it on with other men. Plenty of kinks are catered for Matimate recently reviewed a Tom of Finland book here.

A collection of stories that epitomize the Tom of Finland style: muscular men in various uniforms (and sometimes in flared jeans) fuck and get fucked. The edition is beautifully edited and executed. All in all, a fun and sexy read!

A wonderful piece of art. The drawings are fantastic. Everybody should have this book in their erotic comic book collection. ;)

Pornografía artística que, a estas alturas, también va de testimonio histórico y manifiesto. Susceptible de todos los análisis y de todas las aproximaciones, los Kake de Tom of Finland son un clásico contemporáneo que se extiende más allá de la comunidad gay / clasemediera / europea / norteamericana; prueba de ello es su influencia en el rock y el pop (de Judas Priest a Village People), en la literatura y en el cine de, literalmente, todo el mundo. Ni hablar en el mundo del cómic. Pero ojo que Pornografía artística que, a estas alturas, también va de testimonio histórico y manifiesto.

Lo que no la desmerece en absoluto sino que, por el contrario, nos debería hacer reflexionar sobre la posibilidad de llegar al arte supremo desde tan vilipendiada subcultura; en este caso, subsubcultura (lo gay dentro de lo pornográfico). Que pataleen los eruditos antipatriarcales, antihomonormativos y promotores de la diversidad absoluta e infinita de los géneros, y aquellos que garrapatean contra todos los estereotipos de belleza imposible: aunque les duela, probablemente todos seguirían siendo tratados como enfermos mentales de no ser por gente como Tom, el finlandés. A él, todo honor y toda gloria per secula seculorum. ...more

Page after page after page of great big brawny rough men having sex in one form or another. Tom of Finland was a great artist but he drew men as caricatures, not how they really are. All his men have short, stubby little noses, a strong square jaw, and massive muscles and genitals. He didn't vary their facial features, so they all pretty much look alike.

The short stories in here have no words, but they are so perverted and expressive that you really don't need any. I love the art style and the eroticism and fantasy.
