Not too long ago I gushed over Money Shot Vol. 1 which took sex and aliens (and sex with aliens) to new levels. With Vol. 2 available, I was excited to get my hands on this.
Our intrepid group of scientists-turned-porn-stars is being threatened. The primary threat comes from Earth. The President of the United States, an egotistical, narcissistic, childish, metal-midget of a man looks to withhold funding from the Money Shot group. And when a sexy female horse-like alien not only declines his advances but kicks him where it hurts, he’s really P.O.’d.
But the funding is back on and the Money Shot team is back in action … as long as the POTUS is allowed to join the group. Sex with aliens while millions of people watch? Just what the narcissist ordered!
The Money Shot team has been monitored, however, by another race that sees danger in their actions as they spread themselves across the universe and they’ll try to put an end to the team’s philandering.
This was still a fun adventure, but it didn’t have quite the same excitement or passion that he first volume had. The POTUS figure is so iconic and sleazy that one can’t even call it a ‘thinly veiled’ representation of a certain real-life figure (except that he’s drawn to be slender and with more Hollywood-like attractive looks).
I missed the inter-personal relationships that made the first volume more interesting. However, the book ends on a note that brings the story to a tighter focus and a return to a more personal level, which I hope is the starting point for the next volume.
Looking for a good book? Money Shot is a clever, sex-themed sci-fi graphic novel series. Vol. 2 adds a new challenge to the XXX-plorers’ adventures and isn’t quite as titillating as the first volume but still has some fun.
I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.
