Really cute <3
Hello, Nanoff! I love your comics and "Boomer's Big Date" got me started on them.
So, I was wondering. You have been running BMZ in the background for awhile now. Is there any way you could update the BMZ you have available on Itch.io so to make it accessible to those who haven't been able to follow it elsewhere?
I think i speak for the rest of us, it would be appreciated!
Hey everyone! I love this comic! But one reason I love this comic that I didn't really realize until now is how the relationship between Miles and Boomer. In most love stories, sex comes at the climax (heh) of the relationship, after both parties have said their I love yous to each. In most stories, if two characters have sex the day they meet, they'll never get together by the end. But I think that's quite unrealistic, wouldn't you say? A lot of people start out looking for a hookup but end up finding their perfect match that way. Certainly, that's common for us gay men. Having the mindset of "sex should only happen after a relationship begins instead of before" makes you liable to be disappointed in hookup culture and the whole idea of casual sex. While I wouldn't say that Dating Apps like Grindr are by any means perfect, they're still our culture.
So I find it refreshing that this comic starts out with a hookup between both parties who are initially uninterested in each other romantically but then start to grow feelings towards each other. My first time reading this comic, I knew these characters were going to fuck, but I didn't know if they were going to stay together and I can't say any other story has made me feel that way. When Miles talks about sleeping with several guys and revealing to Boomer that he's someone he actually likes, that's when I really started to like Miles and felt a connection to him. I legit thought Miles was going to leave Boomer near the end of the story, so it was a nice surprise when it turned out they talked it out and resolved their issues. It gives a nice twist to the typical romance story where the relationship develops through sex, and sex is not a byproduct of the relationship. So good on you Nanoff for making a romance story that manages to stand out amongst other romance stories.
Gostei muito da história foi minha melhor experiência👉😳👈
I have enjoyed following you on Itch.io and look forward to more.
Thank you for creating and sharing with us.
Love it thank you for your hard work (and the French translation !!)
Update: I've added a French translation done by rien de spécial , special thanks to him for offering to do it out of the blue!
As most of you may know, I've been posting weekly strips featuring these characters on Twitter since the comic ended, and plan to make more in the future. I'm currently taking a break from the schedule to post a different comic, Outclassed, which I will be making an itch page for when enough pages are posted.
Figured this was a good opportunity to compile all the current BMZ strips to date (November 2021) and add them here, which you can check out in the BMZ section of the language select. Also added some extras like the alternate ending to this comic voted by patrons.
Thank you all for your support, and hope I keep delivering.
Oh nice, a French translation
I've already read it in English, guess it's time to read it again in French !
I've been following you on Twitter and seen the characters, but didn't realize til now you had a whole comic of them. I really enjoyed this and love the characters even more now. Very well done. :D
This was... Amazing. Honestly got emotional. Best shit ever.
will there be a continuation of the story of boomers? or is it done?
Might be old news but I've been making strips that continue the story on my twitter and FA pages ( https://twitter.com/nanoff94 )
I'm currently working on a second comic with a new cast of characters, when I start posting that one I'll take a break from making weekly BMZ strips (I'll still post some pictures or strips with Miles and Boomer here and there though because the demand is still there), which is a good excuse to compile all the "sequel" strips up to that point on this page (plus bonus panels, extra drawings, etc.), because Twitter sucks ass for archiving.
If your question is more "will you make another 50 page comic like BBD as a sequel", not really, I think the strip format still has a sense of continuity (Miles and Boomer are both out of the closet and dating now, for example) and isn't that big of a commitment to a single idea. As much as I like drawing these characters, I don't want them to be the only thing I draw for the good part of a year. I've got lots of other ideas and plans.
Best comic ever !
Congrats on being the top rated comic on itch.io
The comic is now available in Russian!
Special thanks to ShockaloAleksandr for offering out of the blue to do the translation!
Here's a link to his channel if you guys want to check it out:
I don't see anything new...
Hey PaleAngel, nanoff just added the Russian translation to the downloadable files and to the embedded comic.
That wrapped up really nicely :)
I'm glad that you managed to stay in the portrait of all the emotions going on, without focusing on the lewdness too much.
A few tables felt a bit... diluted and stretched, but I'm glad to have supported it. :)
I'm not sure if I'd love to see the same chars or completely new ones - I'm surely going to be peeking at Minotaur Hotel :)
(I didn't want to spoil myself the game with early version so far)
Boomer's Big Date is a good comic that balances erotic, dramatic and comedic content superbly. Though its characters aren't the most fleshed out ever, they exist in their own mythology which adds to them and to the meta behind the work.
Nanoff is no stranger to narrative in his works, be it the handful of image series he has produced or his work on Minotaur Hotel; this is however his first comic proper. For his first foray in the medium, he performed expertly. Many first time R18 comic makers will devote so little time to character development, said characters become well rendered planks of wood with genitals. The Argentinian artist avoids that trap almost entirely; as sex is never devoid of drama, comedy or development, many times all at once. All that, while delivering quality erotic content.
Characters are also shown in an interesting light. Boomer and Zoomer were originally made for short, shitpost-like strips mocking generational gaps and stereotypes. The artist has been able to give depth to them without betraying who they are at the core; much of the comedy still being related to what you'd find in the original strips. A fun thing happens when it comes to the naming convention. Boomer, Zoomer and Karen are all named after memes, such a trait is found in no other characters. What ends up happening is that Boomer is "stuck" in his stereotypes, and is only spurred into being deeper characters by those who have real names.
The idea of the simplified characters growing deeper, mirrors Nanoff's own transition from a mostly shitposting/pin-up artist into one who explores story-telling. One thing is clear as the comic progresses: the Nanoff at the end of the comic is a much better cartoonist and narrator than the one that started it. Especially when it comes to expression and blocking, the improvement is tangible and appreciated, furthermore fans are quick to point it out.
Alas, this is not the perfect comic. One of the biggest critiques I offer on the overall art is the difference of portrayal of different body types. Muscular, chubby and musclechub bodies are perfectly well represented, but thinner or more feminine bodies visibly fall short in comparison. The comic will also show an overuse of reiterations; some feel like they occupy more of the comic than necessary.
Regardless, none of its shortcomings are enough to bring the work down too much. Boomer Big Date works well as a stand-alone project and as a springboard into many interesting scenarios these characters can offer.
That was great. Seriously good work.
THE FOREHEAD KISS THO OH MY GOD
This was really great. I like the fact there was realism to the storyline. There are so many guys out there in the same situation as our two leads and with today's tech world it starts with sex but could lead to something more and all the baggage that goes along with it. The hand holding at the end was a subtle and a nice touch. Would love to see more of this story. Hopefully you will get the opportunity to continue it. Thanks again and a really well done job!
ok, i wasnt expecting that tbh.
i thought they would be stubborn, until Miles decides to fix something and go to Boomer's workshop. and then magic happens with an amazing confession in front of all.
meanwhile, his what so called wife, would be somehow punished or something.
oh i know the feeling, right now, he want miles so bad but doesnt know what to do as he feels guilty, i say, kiss him an apology. if the last thing i want to remember you with is a kiss rather a fight. even if i'm guilty, i wish in your heart to find the part where you saw good of me. as i saw how good you are.
outstanding, a finally confession, i want more. please, try to think of an extended version of this, i hate to know it is going to end.
Happy to hear people want more, I'll be making more strips with these characters after this comic is done. I have another long comic in the works but it's going to have to wait, really busy working on Minotaur Hotel right now
currently trying to forget this project so I can experience it for the first time all over again
yo this is a better love story than twilight. it's funny and cute, sexy and erotic, tragic and emotional but above all else it's a gay furry masterpiece.
Again, Poor Miles
I forgot to update the html file, this week's page is now available.
Speaking of updates, the Spanish version of the comic is now available.
The new page doesn't show...
NOOO DON'T LEAVE
Can you blame him for leaving tho? I mean, the conclusion "Karen" made and how Boomer reacted made it pretty obvious that it was more of a bullseye rather than a hypothesis. Plus, a date Miles planned out just turned into a big disaster so he saw nothing else to do but leave.
Both me and Miles: "Why do people treat me like sh**?"
Aaaaaand he left...I can't really blame him for feeling that way but damn maybe the embarassment along with the pain was a too much for him...just like how it was too much for me.
here it goes.
Fuck man, deny it all!
Karen's in a LOT of trouble now!!! I can relate to Miles cuz the "Pretending that I was her boyfriend" shit happened to me as well.
Really hope you weren't the Karen in that situation
Karen is a literal KAREN! I love how this all seemed to be planned out from the very beginning. *plot intensifies*
