Vault Comics made the comics industry collectively blush in 2019 when they released the first issue of Money Shot, the space age sex comedy created by Tim Seeley, which went on to sell through multiple printings and an initial run of 15 issues.

Now, the XXX-plorers are back on their hands and knees for the good of humanity! When the giant ass space jellyfish who run the ordered universe arrive on earth, the porn-stars-cum-science explorers must put away grudges, crushes, and side-hustles to again take one (or two, or three) for the team.

Now as this epically sexy new arc begins, taking aim at dumb billionaires and bad optics, Vault Comics announces a special appearance from the legendary adult underground comix character, Cherry Popstar, as drawn by beloved Canadian artist Gisele Lagace (Ménage à 3), who steps into artist duties on this new arc.

Tim Seeley says “CHERRY comix were a formative force for me. They were the forbidden fruit on the top shelf of the comic store, the little piece of subversive history to be found while thumbing long boxes. Larry Welz’s eternal balance of sexy and satirical helped me realize what an adult comic could be. It’s with great reverence that we welcome Cherry Popstar to the pages of Money Shot for our tale of billionaire greed and tech’s obsession with stealing art from humanity.”

“Erotica has always been an integral part of comics” adds Vault’s Editor-in-Chief Adrian Wassel. “The history of erotica comics is rich and lovely — a story of artists rebelling against shame and bigotry, demonstrating in the pages themselves and the audiences they’ve found that beauty exists in sex and romance of all sorts. Money Shot has continued that proud tradition of sex positivity. Here is a series, going on its fourth adventure into the world, that’s not actually porn, even if it’s about porn. Money Shot is more interested in warmth and humor than what’s under the underpants. And that’s the great trick of Money Shot: it sounds a whole lot dirtier than it is. Don’t get me wrong, it’s plenty cheeky (you’ll see!), but it’s a story about oddballs, a bunch of overly smart scientists who are probably the least emotionally equipped people on planet earth to be undressing in front of, well, an audience a whole lot bigger than just planet earth. And so, finally, it’s about how these people come to respect themselves and each other as partners, as friends, and as lovers. What’s more human and necessary than that?”

Money Shot Comes Again featuring Cherry Popstar will be released in comic shops everywhere on April 26, with final orders due to Diamond on Monday, March 27. Reserve your copies with your favorite retailer today.
