BETTY BY NIGHT (CLARA DE NOCHE)

betty

CLARA DE NOCHE (Betty by Night), is an adult humor strip from the pages of EL JUEVES, a Spanish language weekly magazine. It was first collected and translated to English by EROS Publications in the 90s, but all of those have since gone out of print.
Normally, I don't focus too much on adult comics, but I'm making an exception here because there is a lot more to this than nudity and sex.
"Betty" is a single mother who supports her son by prostitution, and a good number of the strips are just sex scenes with a joke in the last panel. We're not going to look at those right now. Instead, I want to show you these five episodes that mostly concern Betty's personal life. The writing and humor here are well above the (very low) standard for adult comics.

By Jordi Bernet, Carlos Trillo, and Eduardo Maicas.

  1. This final panel is really funny, He went all the way to calculate how many kids his mom would have from her.. ahem.. night job. Poor soul, even there a little innocence can be found.
