This subterranean world still retains the power to be dangerous. Art Spiegelman created controversy with his New Yorker cover of an Easter Bunny crucified on a tax form. Eli Langer was tried for child pornography by drawing sensitive sketches of children in realistic situations. The first printer of Diane Noomin's book Twisted Sisters refused to print what they defined as too shocking. The artists discuss their lives, art and experiences with candor, often revealing deeply personal and insightful accounts. Remaining outside the realm of respectability has allowed this work to be an island of creativity as the bastard child of the art world. This book reveals how comix and graphix are inventively dealing with unexplored formal aesthetics while simultaneously delivering, in a populist medium, important social, political and emotional material.
