Roy & Al is the first English-language book by Europe's most popular gay cartoonist, Germany's Ralf König, whose collections have sold over a million copies and been translated into French, Italian, Spanish, Norwegian, and Danish.

Ralf's enormous popularity can be attributed to his skill at combining classic comedic situations with good old-fashioned raunch. Roy & Al is a hilarious, erotically charged series of gay comics starring two dogs whose owners are dating; Al, a small purebred, is rather fey, and treats the unsophisticated with disdain, while Roy, a larger mongrel, is coarser and more down-to-earth (and a tad overweight). Any similarities between masters and dogs are strictly intentional. Roy & Al is an uproarious vision of contemporary gay life through the eyes of man's best friend.

I spent most of the night with my feet propped up on my desk, chuckling over every page--much to the irritation of those in the newsroom who actually wanted to make the paper's deadline. (Warning: It's not for those who find cartoon sex disturbing).

K's work is most reminiscent of the early days of gay comics such as Gay Comix and Meatmen ... It pushes boundaries, demanding more than mere acceptance but also an appreciation of gay life in all its outrageousness--or, more generally of life in all the diversity of its outrageousness, whether gay or straight, German or American, vanilla or kinky.

For sweet-tempered satire, don't miss Roy & Al...stingingly funny commentary about the hedonistic ways of urban gay men.
