James Kochalka couldn't have done it better. Hard to believe this gentle soul would be waging war against the world a mere 28 years later. From Defenders #75 (1979) by Ed Hannigan, Herb Trimpe and Mike Esposito. That Greenpeace address is about a mere mile and a half from our office; I don't think it's still there. Oh, and NEVER accuse the Defenders of being intolerant.
Now available on Fantagraphics.com: the popular long-running series from Eros Comix, The Tijuana Bibles: America's Forgotten Comic Strips, including the brand-new Volume 9 (shown above) and past volumes #2 and 5-8! (Click here to browse the full list.) This series, edited by Michael Dowers, collects the hard-to-find comics booklets produced mainly in the 1930s that feature the most popular comic strip characters and media personalities of the day in sexually-explicit and outrageously satirical situations. These taboo-busting pamphlets were the original "underground" comix, and this reprint series is of interest to nostalgia buffs, connoisseurs of vintage erotica, and anyone else who likes fun, dirty stories. Each volume features snappy original cover art by Pat Moriarity.
You may experience a sense of déja vu, or perhaps more appropriately déja ne vu pas, at your local comic shops this week, as once again no new Fantagraphics releases are scheduled to arrive. What does next week hold? Stay tuned to Flog to find out.
