This is a comic book series by artist Phil Foglio of What's New? with Phil & Dixie, Buck Godot: Zap Gun for Hire and Magic: The Gathering artwork fame.

As the title would suggest, the main themes of the stories in each issue centered around encounters with those that are different. The xenoforms in the stories were usually aliens, but would also include unusual natives, gods, and sometimes just other human beings.

Most of the stories were very humorous (one story included a double bed that would double the people sleeping upon it each night) and others had morals to them. The original title ran for 11 issues, with the first featuring a cover with an Asian woman in bed with little paper pagodas over her naughty bits and a man pulling up the zipper on his 'Zilla suit. It seems that all but issues 3, 6 & 7 are available for purchase from The 10th issue is The Collectable Trading Card Game (And Why Not?). (although there are 11 issues mentioned on the XXXenophile site, the site itself says 10 issues. I don't know why)

The XXXenophile Collection is up to its 6th issue so far and is a current series. It started out as a reprinting of some of the more popular stories from the original series along with some new material by Phil as well as other humorous adult artists. It was so popular that they dicided not to stop at the originally projected 5 issues. Plus, the lack of availability of some of the original issues and the fans' desire to see all of their favorite stories reprinted played a part.

The collectible card game is one of the most amusing card games I've played in a long time. Plus, with skillful manipulation, even a deck thrown together in 20 minutes can defeat a deck that was carefully crafted for hours, so it does not require that you spend a lot of money, as with some of the other games available. My husband's favorite part (and no doubt the favorite of many others) is the inclusion of cards with the designation "exhibitionist" as one of their attributes. Every exhibitionist card involves the removal of clothing. Needless to say, this particular part of the game is non-functional when playing at conventions. The cards are varied, most having been inspired by the comics (Cordelia's Double Bed) and others just bad puns (The Hatchback of Notre Dame, Count Pointercount) and some just are (Plot Device, Sneevax: Cute but Evil Spacebabe). The game itself is fairly simple, easy to play, and can be a lot of fun. As for the scoring, nowhere in the rulebook does it mention orgasms. At least, not in relation to winning the game.

There is also a ButtonMen set based on XXXenophile art. I don't know much about this game, but I believe in involves buttons that you spin, yours and your opponent's, side by side, and the one with the higher number facing the opponenet wins.

The XXXenophile site goes on to mention the upcoming RPG and a possible future poker deck.
