(Continued from Part 1)
Following "BREATHLESS", John Blackburn did a sequel which brought his bixesual hero back to the island where he gained his voodoo power. Like the 3 previous books, this was a self-published limited-edition book. However, unlike the others, this was was reprinted a year later by Eros Comix. I just still can't figure the thinking of skipping the earlier books, since it meant that the first several pages of the new story was over-loaded with exposition to try and bring readers up to date on what they missed.
RETURN TO VOODO ISLAND (Limited Edition / 1991)
Beautiful use of color. I'm still trying to figure out what he used here-- acrylic, guache, water color, colored pencils?
RETURN FROM VOODOO ISLAND 1 (April 1992)
It took me a few years before I was able to read the story with the events being described in this scene.
Kit, a close friend of Coley's since the opening scenes in "BREATHLESS", found herself disturbed by the wildness and violent situations that Coley seemed to surround himself with, and told him she intended to leave and never see him again. He begged her to stay just one more night, during which he performed an intense voodoo ritual as she watched. As a result, she found herself unable to leave, though she knew she could never change him, nor did she want to.
