    • Received this ARC as a win from It is not a graphic novel as I thought but a 200 page novel with occasional illustrations Put out by Heavy Metal so you know it will be full of Sci Fi, violence and sex In other words, a hormonally challenged college boy should be the one reading this Instead they got this only slightly mature 59 year old bookworm to read this while my wife gives me strange looks as she glances at the lurid coverSo I finished it and it is pretty much what I expected from the firs [...]


    • This is supposedly a cutting edge style of reading half novel, half comic What it actually is, is a simple large printed book with pictures You might have seen others like this in the children section.I m not going to compare this book to rape statistics No Not will I won t mention the absurd and horrible sexualization of women portrayed in this book, not at all I wont suggest that this book is in any way offensive to women I won t be mentioning these things due to lack of words over how ashamed [...]


    • This is the first in a planned 3 book run subtitled Heavy Metal Pulp inspired by the famous illustrated fantasy magazine , but note these AREN T graphic novels they re novels with plenty of interior artwork this time courtesy of Justin Norman.The story is basically a mixture of BLADERUNNER and the Harry Canyon segment of the 1981 animated HEAVY METAL film When a former special ops big shot named Sangacha is found murdered, Investigating Officer Rook Venner is called to the scene Among the strang [...]


    • Now, I m conflicted I have a hard time rating this book a three when I know I ve rated actual literature with three stars, but let s be realistic this book is what it is I mean, this is clearly a book that one reads in an afternoon, in one s parents basement I mean, it s not going to change the way you view the world, it s not going to cure what ills the world, it s not going to prevent anyone from writing bad checks, but pulp paperbacks goallyNOT bad There s an actual plot and I found it dare I [...]


    • Intersting story Good character Some of the futuristic stuff did get a little confusing, but that could have been just me I would have liked to have seen pictures as well I am definatly interested in reading of the series once it comes out.


    • I won this book in a First Read s giveawayShallow, trashy, tawdry, and titillating in a way that appeals to 14 year old boys well 14 year old boys in the late 80s, I suppose , if you know what Heavy Metal and pulp fiction are then you know exactly what you re going to get in this volume.Women are objectified, the hero is virile yet chivalrously chaste in that order , unless the woman in question is a prostitute and then she s clearly begging for it, and cliched dystopian conspiracies abound As m [...]


    • Here s the thing This is the sexy story of some cop who is trying to solve some case about some guy military guy or something who might have been important or bad or who really cares The writing is there It is executed well, for whatever it is trying to do Great It is fun in parts Great But it s boring, to me The characters weren t interesting and don t get me wrong they re not supposed to be This is pulpat I don t want to read I ll say it again I was bored that s why I put it down There was uni [...]


    • I laughed I cried It was the best thing since Cats the Musical.As a kid, in the time before parental advisory warnings, I would walk to the local convenience store to buy a copy of Heavy Metal magazine I remember the illustrated magazine to be rather violent and sexually explicit Ahhh, those were the days I found this book to be tame compared to the magazine of my youth Although I haven t picked up a copy of Heavy Metal in a long time, so the magazine may have also tamed down In any event, I fou [...]


    • I m unfamiliar with Heavy Metal magazine, so I had no idea what to expect from Pleasure Model What it was is unexpected, delicious fun.Even though it s got a bit of a cyberpunk sci fi setting, it reads like a noir gritty setting, sexy and amoral heroes, a strong sense of place, lots of shades of gray The world building was just appropriate enough to give the reader a sense of what life is like without bogging anyone down with unnecessary details This is the first book in a series and I m eagerly [...]


    • What a fun book This is really what the title declares it is Pulp Fiction Peasure Model is an urban fantasy that the guys are going to eat up It was a quick read and there is sex, violence and drugs, no rock and roll though I am going to look for the next title in this series since the ending left me hanging a bit And isn t that cover awesome since it reminds of something Quentin Tarantino would do.


    • Here s one for all the horny fourteen year old boys Sexy women, giant robots, and exploding heads everything a young horndog needs Added bonus drawings of naked girls included.


    • In the beginning of Pleasure Model you meet Angela who has been in hiding for the past 25 years from the killers who murdered her fiance She is now Mistress Julia , a dominatrix, living in New York Her latest client is murdered and she barely escapes with her life but not before she over hears the killers talking and realizes that these are the same killers from decades ago and they ve found her She now has to find help with going into hiding again and this time she needs to remain hidden.You th [...]

    • Pleasure Model is the first of three short novels in the Netherworld trilogy They are all fantastic reads The Netherworld is a future world where a tyrannical government governs with secret assassination squads, people live in big developed cities, and much of the country is uninsured territory Similar to Asimov s Caves of Steel series, here s a science fiction world with a homicide detective, but it s not quite a PG rated world This world bristles with eroticism and is filled with dominatrixes [...]


    • Publisher s Weekly just doesn t understand pulp fiction Pulps were the successor to the penny dreadfuls, dime novels, and short fiction magazines of the nineteenth century Although many respected writers wrote for pulps, the magazines are best remembered for their lurid and exploitative stories and sensational cover art Christopher Rowley, on the other hand, has a firm grasp of the genre.Pleasure Model by Christopher Rowley, the first book in the Netherworld Series, is a fast paced, action orien [...]


    • This was an interesting book It was done in a new style of graphic novel comic book look There were some pictures on the pages that illustrated what was going on at the time The artist, Justin Norman, has a wonderful way with pencils At least, the pictures looked to be done in pencil The plot was very interesting and I would be interested in reading the other two books that are to come from this series Christopher Rowley creates his own futuristic world that comes alive as you keep up with all o [...]


    • Tor presents what they call the first illustrated novel with Christopher Rowley s Pleasure Model, the first in the Netherworld trilogy It represents a new partnership between Heavy Metal magazine and Tor books Heavy Metal Pulp will partner the top illustrators and designers from the iconic fantasy magazine with today s most talented science fiction authors, blending the sensuous artistic style and graphic imagery of Heavy Metal with classic noir storytelling While I wouldn t ordinary step within [...]


    • I picked this up as a FirstRead, and was under the impression that it was a graphic novel It was not, there were black and white drawings thrown in throughout the book, but it was a novel with some illustrations not a graphic novel.It takes place in a futuristic New York with a lot of technology embedded into humans, much of it illegally There is also a race of people created in laboratories The Pleasure Model is allowed extremely limited intelligence, but than normal sex appeal and physical at [...]


    • So I have to admit, this book was much better than I expected After all, it s published by Heavy Metal I was expecting sex, violence, and large breasted women in metal bikinis There s some sex, lots of violence, but they decided to pass on the metal swimwear for this book Good call.The story is classic pulp Good cop in a world gone bad And the world is bad An ex president that shows up for a cameo is the worst kind of twisted pervert, senators are tied up in some kind of military plot, People bu [...]


    • I received this book as a First Read and was pleasantly surprised with the book, not being of a genre I read on a regular basis The cover made it seem a lot sexual of a story than it actually was I guess it s made to attract the target audience of young males, but it mostly made me have to hold it carefully while reading it in public to avoid judging looks.The story is a noir set in a very bleak future, revolving around a cop who might be the only moral creature left in the furturistic New York [...]


    • Am I the target audience for this book, nope Did I love this book, oh good god yes I did Having never read any noir fiction or Heavy Metal magazine, I had no clue what to expect from this book The illustrations were fantastic and added an element of fun This was a fast paced dark story about a rogue cop named Rook in a seriously messed up futuristic world of genetically engineered pleasure models, Fed robots and some twisted political figures I don t quite understand where some think this is a m [...]


    • I wanted to like this I mean, geez, look at the cover Unfortunately this book follows the trend that many Heavy Metal Magazine releases do, as far as I am concerned, and that would be the tendency to have awesome covers with very little substance on the inside Sure there are robots, cybernetic implants, and genetically engineered test tube sex slaves but it s not enough Throw some real people into the mix and you would have yourself a dang story The characters are flat, ya ll Our hero, Rook, ha [...]


    • I picked this one up after reading it was the first of a new line of Heavy Metal Pulp A pulp style novel printed by the Heavy Metal franchise Although not a graphic novel as such, it is illustrated with a small 1 2 illustration every 3 pages or so.The story follows a detective on a murder case who very quickly gets in way over his head Hes forced to turn rogue to keep out of the clutches of whoever is trying to kill him The central clue here is that everyone is trying to capture, or kill, a modi [...]


    • I had never heard of Heavy Metal Pulp genre until a couple weeks ago While stumbling around my boyfriend s book horde, I found this strange novel scattered among the shelves My excitement increased as I realized it came with pictures A short, fast paced story with sex being a main character, but equally partnered with an intriguing detective story that will leave you in suspense.The pictures were a fun addition and I have to say I enjoyed the story Rook, the good cop and our hero has a soft spot [...]


    • What fun Reminds me of back in the 70 s when I d be babysitting late and catch something racy on late night cable More innuendo and carefully draped costume than now The back cover describes the book as combining noir fiction with fantastic art featuring the themes, story lines and graphic styles of Heavy Metal magazine Can t say that I ever ran into any of those magazines but I would liken this to an old Humphrey Bogart black and white movie with him as the slightly compromised police detective [...]


    • It has been a while I ve read a graphic novel, but I did enjoy reading this one The illustrations were just enough to give a gentle push to your imagination without overwhelming it The novel itself was a combo of Blade Runner meets John McClain I m not a reader of Heavy Metal magazine, but, I imagine, the regular readers should enjoy this If the novel needed a rating, I would give it NC 17 for nudity, D s, violence, and language This is not a graphic novel for middle school children.Police Detec [...]


    • I want to start by saying that I won this book as a first reads here on Go figure I, naive as I may be, thought that Heavy Metal magazine had something to do with music Boy was I wrong and had I had known it was a sci fi erotica type of publication I most likely would not have entered for it.All in all it was okay for a quick read Personally, I feel that it is definitely of a guys book but some girls may also enjoy it It just wasn t really my thing Most of it was pretty predictable and kind of [...]


    • I just received this book from the giveaway Can t wait to read it It doesn t appear to be the style book I usually read It has some drawings and rather large print I ll start reading it tonight or tomorrow I didn t realize Heavy Metal Pulp was a certain group or style of books My husband was excited to see what I was reading, he reads those books So far so good It s futuristic yet classic in that it s a detective story I really liked this story His phone was the coolest I was right about one thi [...]


    • This book was like reading a good action movie which comes in three parts The illustrations peppered throughout the book remind me of the old zebra books from back in the day The story focuses on a murdered retired general, his pleasure model and a cop who is trying to solve the case Needless to say everything goes wrong, political and military involvement increases the stakes at hand, and just as the action is really getting going the book ends leaving you on the edge for the next volume The wo [...]
