It’s no big secret here at Outright Geekery that we are big fans of Stjepan Sejic. So when an opportunity presented itself to interview Sejic, it was simply too good to pass up. Stjepan was nice enough to answer our questions on a variety of topics, from his beginnings in the comic industry, to his current work on Death Vigil, his upcoming run on Rat Queens, his own web-series Sunstone and teases us with what future projects he has in the pipeline.
Sunstone is Stjepan and Linda Luksic Sejic’s own webcomic series that can be found on one of Stjepan’s Deviant Art pages. The first chapter of this series is being printed as a trade by Image Comics. As a fan of this series, I am excited to see it as a physical book. I don’t exactly remember how I first stumbled onto Sunstone, but I do know it involved the fan artwork of Stjepan Sejic. If you’ve never seen his fan art, you really should. A lot of it is quite good, and it can be funny, too.
What is Sunstone? Simply put, it is a story about the relationship between Ally and Lisa, two ladies that have special needs and are a little lonely. By special needs, I mean S&M. Seems that neither of them have ever truly found a partner that understands. Ally is the more dominant one, she enjoys being creativity sexual, but hasn’t found the right person to be with. Then there’s Lisa, who’s like being tied up. She’s experimented with self-bondage, but like Ally has not yet found that right person. These two find each other online and decide to meet in real-life, this is where their story begins.
Beyond the sexual nature of the artwork (I’m not going to lie, there’s a lot of it) there is a very human story being told. A story about love, friendship, and trust that develops between Ally and Lisa. You, as the reader, get a very good picture about these two ladies and how their choices have lead them to cross paths. At its core, Sunstone is a love story. Check out our Preview. Continue reading Review: Sunstone
