Format: Paperback
Bill "The Hun" Schmeling has been pushing us to our limits artistically for over 30 years. His vision of men echoes that of the late Tom Of Finland, in that enormously exaggerated physiques with outrageously proportioned genitalia threaten or face peril on every page. Fluids spew, sweat flies, lips leer. This is danger in pen and ink.

But there is something else at work here. Collected among the more than 100 images are perilous situations and the men are frequently at the edge in their playing, but The Hun's work often carries a wickedly subversive sense of humor. If you read the captions on the "walls" of some of these drawings, you'll find a delightfully (and I mean this in the most complimentary of fashions) sick mind at work, with a host of bad puns and backwoods humor. It makes for some strange juxtapositions in a book filled with so many images of terror and pain.

Probably one of the most exciting things about The Hun's work is that it runs right up against taboo items and slams into them with no holds barred. There are scenes here that will cause you to question exactly why these images stimulate you, because they are most certainly NOT politically correct. If The Hun can keep you at the edge of your seat now, as he has through four decades, then you know exactly why "Fetishes And Fetters" is such an essential, must have book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have a problem with this book: I do not know Hun's style when I bought this and found I do not like it. His men are too raw, unfinished. They have this barbaric faces I do not find sexy but ugly.

This aside, I can find no fault: Hun surely knows his job, he has his own personal style and is able to convey the sexy situations he has in mind. His men are not only huge but dirty, rough and involved in extremely hot acts.
The similarity to Tom of Finland is very superficial and should not lead one to the purchase.

Format: Paperback
Intersting book full of the distinctive stye of the Hun. His drawings are certainly fanciful, but they do not dissapoint. He draws a world of fantasy where the erotic parts of this subjects are larger than life, for example, sex organs are bigger, chests are more hairy, armpits more sweaty, the sex is rough and testosterone rolls from the pages. If this is intereting to you then you will enjoy this slim though impressive retrospect of artwork by The Hun

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Squirrelzilla on May 20, 2013
Format: Paperback
This volume reprints 80 pages or so of artwork by `The Hun', along with 3 pages of notes detailing the titles and original publication dates. The art consists in the main of full-page illustrations, with a few pages holding three and four panels. There is also a two-page example of one of the Hun's comic strips. Most of the book is in black & white, with about 17 pages of colour. The art dates from the late 1970s to the late 1990s, though mostly from the `80s and `90s. The content ranges from single-figure poses to explicit group activities. If you are familiar with the Hun's art, you will know what to expect; if you are not then expect extremely explicit gay male erotica.
