    1. This is an excellent, if very NSFW and often nerdish, account of the graphic illustration of sex up until the late 1970s.Much of the background to this era has already been covered in a series of book reviews elsewhere in GoodReads We direct you to our sexuality and erotica list with special reference to McDonough s biography of Russ Meyer and to the Taschen edition of Men s Adventure covers.The review of Gillian Freeman s Undergrowth of Literature written in the 1960s and Paul Willetts biograph [...]


    2. Ok so maybe it s not your cup of tea Maybe you re not interested in the history of erotic comics and how they re constantly changing But I can tell you this collection of comics are not for the faint of heart They are graceful, vulgar, lush, and striking all at once Alan Moore writes a great forward, softly pushing the reader into the dark and gorgeous world of quality erotica I m not even going into detail on the artists Just pick it up and read Then read Volume 2.



    3. This was an interesting book, with a lot of great images and information It s kind of bitty and less a history than a lot of information about important people and images Still, fun to read.


    4. Interesting overview of the subject I would argue that much of the work isn t erotic in the slightest women being murdered while pleasuring men is disturbing, not erotic , but I suppose somebody somewhere must have deemed it so, unfortunately.Also, it seemed very straight If I were a gay man in the 1950s I m sure I would have found L il Abner or Terry and the Pirates quite erotic, to say nothing of those many hunky superheroes out there, but nothing like that was explored it was pretty much sexy [...]


    5. Historic timeline of erotic comics, with a page or two on each genre or artist Good contextualization of some of the materials we have been working with at Alta Glamour Plus it s a big beautiful color illustrated book for your coffee table.



    6. Comics and erotica go together like dogs and Michael Vick At least I imagine they would as I will never read this.
