Sex And Horror: Volume Four

Sex And Horror: Volume Four

Description

This is the fourth title in our bestselling Sex and Horror series, which celebrates the 1960s and '70s publishing phenomenon known as "fumetti sexy" -- Italian adult comics with a unique take on such genres as horror, crime, fantasy, history and fairy tales. Wilder and weirder than you can imagine, they were some of the most outrageous and shocking comics ever produced. These weren't underground publications: they were mass market and their highly erotic covers were seen on every newsstand and kiosk across the country.

At the peak of the craze, leading publishers were releasing a new, 100-page comic every few days, with artists having to draw 150 to 200 pages a month. The comics were hugely successful, due in part to their uninhibited mix of twisted humour, gory violence, and up-front eroticism; however, what makes them so sought-after today is their technicolor cover illustrations, rendered by classically trained painters. Here is a further collection of those notorious covers -- a visual feast of outrageous pulp art. This volume includes covers from such popular titles as Jacula, Oltretomba and Vampirissimo.
