Nasty Tales: Sex, Drugs, Rock 'n' Roll and Violence in the British Underground

Front Cover
Critical Vision, 2001 - Art - 191 pages
Cultural Writing. Although never on the scale of their American counterparts, there was indeed a Comics Underground in Britain with much the same anti-establishment stance. Engaging in subject matter that was at once playful, anarchic and sexually unrestrained, this 'political pornography' invariably caught the wary eye of the law and often found itself in the dock charged with obscenity. From their origin in the 1960s though the emergence of VIZ in the 1980s, NASTY TALES uncovers the turbulent history of these comics and the cultural instability from which they emerged. Lavishly illustrated.
