Rokudenashi's 'Crisis'

This part-article (particle?) formerly (and mistakenly) formed part of my A-Z entry for Zelolee and I'm reposting it and parking it here until such time as I am able to do justice to the real artist.
I'm indebted to 'lamlamblam' for pointing out my original error.

Rokudenashi - Crisis page 9
In this image from Rokudenashi's 'Crisis', however, the rendering technique works very well on the hero's skin-tight suit, suggesting a clingy suppleness that must be a treat to wear! Unfortunately it also seems to be irresistible to the genetically-bred 'monsters' that he has come to hunt down. The drawing here is highly-stylised with minimal background detail and the hero's face totally obscured by a sleek, futuristic, helmet. In contrast the monster is rather crudely and confusingly imagined, as a sort of humanoid dinosaur with added tentacles which appear to grow out of his backside (see next frame!).
(Remember to read these pictures from right to left)

Rokudenashi - Crisis page15
Needless to say the creature duly has it's way with the hapless soldier, gradually removing his entire uniform – but not his helmet which appears to be an integral part of his body with the eye holes cleverly changing shape to convey his reactions. The rough assault is portrayed by the artist in a series of angular frames with close-up detail which is not always easy to read but conveys a sense of the desperate, slightly comical struggle. Inevitably I suppose, the coupling soon takes the form of the standard, tentacle 'sit in my lap' pose, similar to that in the first picture in this article (in case you hadn't noticed). 
Rokudenashi - Crisis page24
Eventually our hero is rescued by a comrade who comes to his aid and dispatches the randy monster, who presumably dies happy. The story has a delicious end-twist when the recuperating hero is told that the monster's impregnation must be removed from his body or he will turn into one himself. 
The extracting machine, designed to probe all the relevant orifices turns out to have monster-like dimensions too and the story closes with treatment in full flow. We get to see the hero's fully naked body in this scene and I'd have been tempted to remove his helmet too to give this scene a more human dimension, but I suppose that's not the way of heroes.
