The liberating underground comix of the 1960s heralded an explosion in the genre of erotic comics, and this volume picks up the story to show how European, American and Asian artists have explored the graphic possibilities of the form in the years since. Well-known names covered include Melinda Gebbie, Giovanna Casotto (whose work graces the cover), Tom of Finland and Milo Manara. This provocative title covers the erotic comics explosion in the mid-80s; the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender comics scene; UK and European comics creators since the 70s; and Japanese hentai. The book features an exclusive foreword by Alan Moore, multi-award-winning writer of Watchmen, V for Vendetta and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
