Synopsis
Mustaches and muscles: Back to the days when men were men and sex was carefree In 1965, Tom of Finlandbegan flirting with the idea ofan ongoing character for his panel stories, the ultimate Tom s Man. He tried out a blond named Vicky a common male name in Finland followed by a Tarzan-inspired Jack. Then in 1968 Tom settled onKake, a dark-haired, mustached leathermanwho often wore a tight white T-shirt bearing the motto Fucker. Kake lived up to this moniker, a sort of post-Stonewall, hyper-masculine Johnny Appleseedtraveling the world on his motorcycle tospread the seeds of liberated, mutually satisfying, ecstatically explicit gay sex. Tom lived out many of his most personal fantasies through Kake, and Kake s international fans made him the template for what came to be known as the gay clone look of the 1970s. Between 1968 and 1986, Tom published26 episodes of Kake adventures, most as 20-page booklets.Tom of Finland The Complete Kake Comicscollects all of these stories in one volume.Return with Kake to the days when men were men, sex was carefree, and everyone wore a big thick mustache.
