Cartoonist Meredith McClaren (Hinges) tells five short, sexy stories featuring superheroes, supervillains, sidekicks, and the people who love them.

Showing consent and character-driven erotic relationships, Super Fun Sexy Times answers the age-old question: what happens when the mask comes off? 

Two sidekicks on opposite sides get stuck in an underground lab together, and find a great way to pass the time. A tactician and superhero discuss their desires, limits, and kinks before their first time, and perhaps get a little too excited in the process. A pair of supervillains explore gender and sex together, while growing closer in their relationship. Lesbian heroes try out a kinky rolepaying scenario, and discover how to make it work for both of them. And an exhausted assassin relaxes after a long day with the kind (yet firm) attentions of his husband.

Told with care, sex-positivity, and humor, and featuring a wide variety of sexualities and bodies, Super Fun Sexy Times aims to create an erotic reading experience that lives up to its name!:

My Thoughts

If you are looking for a sex positive, queer inclusive, superhero themed erotic graphic short story collection – then look no further! If you suddenly want to read a book like that, then Super Fun Sexy Times is for you!

In a collection of five NSFW short stories, Meredith McClaren explores a number of themes that surround sex and relationships, but within a superhero context. The themes explored and stories told are not specifically superhero in nature, but this added depth adds so many unexplored layers to traditional superhero dynamics.

You go from one story depicting two superhero lovers negotiating their sexual relationship and history, to a villain dealing with self doubt and thoughts that they are going soft in their old age. Both are told through the lens of superheroes but at heart they explore everyday worries and situations. Which you know, is what superhero comics do. Super Fun Sexy Times just adds some super fun sexy times and explores this through sex.

Also huge shout out to the sex positivity and amazing QUILTBAG inclusion! I not only found Super Fun Sexy Times beautiful to look at and read, but beautiful in its content.

Discussions of consent and desires? Yes.

Unrepentantly sex positive depictions of love, sex and desire? Yes.

Beautiful representations of gender, sexuality, body types, and relationships? Yes!

Super Fun Sexy Times has them all!


Best Bits
  • The art – McClaren has such a distinct and beautiful style. Not only are the stories amazing but the way in which they are told is just so beautiful. I am in love with her style, bold shapes, and character design. Also those blush lines 🥰
  • Good Foundations – Of the five stories, ‘Good Foundations’ was my favourite. Not only was the discussion of gender and sex amazing but the inclusion of a not-completely-human character was great. While not a soft touch, the physical differences of the characters fall to the background of the emotional story being told. Loved it!
  • Those costume designs – 🤤🥰

I loved Super Fun Sexy Times, it was beautiful to look at and to read. I enjoyed each story and fell in love with the universal emotional themes that were portrayed through the featured superheroes.
