“Sex, Nudity and Rape in Horror Comics”

At The Establishment, Alex Townsend explores the differences in how and whether sex, nudity and rape are depicted in Gail Simone and Jonathan Davis-Hunt’s The Clean Room and Alan Moore and Jacen Burrow’s Providence. “[I]t’s intriguing to see that some major horror comics are going in a new direction when it comes to dealing with sexuality. Two of the most prominent horror titles on the stands—Clean Room, by Gail Simone and Jonathan Davis-Hunt, and Providence, by Alan Moore and Jacen Burrows—feature nudity, sex, and rape quite heavily, but diverge in their depictions, surfacing salient lines in the sand when depicting sexual violence and the human form.”
