I have to say that I’m not really an expert of comics, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. There is no text (the bubbles I was used to in the few comics I read), but, after an initial adaptation, it was easy enough to follow the story without them, because, well, the comics is all about sex, and there isn’t much to say. Sincerely I didn’t feel like I was missing the “words”, the illustration where easy enough, and even when, in reality, probably some words were exchanged, the illustrator managed the vignette without it, giving plenty of understanding.
Sticky is also very different from the few yaoi comics I read, and indeed I don’t think this can be classified as yaoi. I’m not an expert, but I know there are subtheme in the yaoi, were different character types can enter the story. In the case of Sticky, both men are bear like, hairy and not so young, definitely not twinks. There is really no top or bottom, even if one of them is slightly older than the other, the story is all about the sex, and how good is when you can enjoy it with all the easiness of being free.
