This international survey of erotic comics chronicles a groundbreaking form of sexual expression up to 1970. Beginning in the ‘30s, when small pornographic comics parodied more popular ones, through the pin-ups of World War II that set the stage for Playboy and fetish comics, and ending in the counterculture of the ‘60s that gave rise to the Robert Crumb-led underground comics revolution, Erotic Comics tells the story with hundreds of illustrations, informative text and insights from key participants. It’s sexy, artistic, entertaining, intriguing and informative.
Hardcover with jacket. 192 pages. 300 full-color illustrations. Foreword by Aline Kominsky-Crumb.
