Spanning the birth of the industry to its first few decades, this book has 100 full-color portraits of the legends of American comic books—publishers, editors, and artists.

COMICS JOURNAL LIBRARY Volume 10 The EC Artists Part 2

VOODOO VENGEANCE and Other Stories
Highly Recommended. By Johnny Craig. EC artist Johnny Craig's graphic style is eerily crisp and contemporary. And you'll be surprised, perhaps, to see the strong and very postive influence of Harvey Kurtzman, not only in stories Kurtzman may have provided layouts for, but also in Craig's own work. His narrative skills are under-appreciated and have to be examined to truly appreciate. This collection of 25 Craig favorites includes "Horror House!," "Werewolf Concerto," "Terror on the Moors," and seven Craig crime classics, including his own favorite, "The Sewer!" Fanatagraphics, 2016...More.

The bondage so frequent in early WW stories begins to be explained here, with its origins both in the early feminist cartoons but also in more intimate desires of Marston and 2nd "wife," Byrne. 16-page full color section plus 100 b&w reproductions of vintage artwork, covers, splash pages, panels, documents, letters and photographs.

Just in this week is an entirely new collection of vintage early 1950s Bettie Page fetish photos, all from the Irving Klaw studio which brought Bettie to the public eye. The Wild World of Bettie Page actually presents no nudity, since this was verboten back in those days, but it's kinky to the extreme—for the times. Bondage, spanking, slinky high heels, leather and stockings, girl fights, s&m...it's all here in many photos never before collected.

See our website for many other Bettie Page books, the new Olivia Calendar for 2017, and more.

ART NOUVEAU POSTERS 2017 Calendar
Recommended. By Alphonse Mucha, Jules Chéret, Toulouse-Lautrec et al. The turn of the twentieth century brought an exciting new art form: Art Nouveau posters.

We like the unusual selection here, with images rarely seen in other calendars. We have works by the above creators plus Will Bradley, Eugene Grasset and more little-seen but brilliant designers and draftsmen. Lots of fun. Many are in French, where the movement began.

HOT BUNS 2017 Calendar
Almost Gone! By Gus Tomasino. Our second collection of Derierres this year, this one comes in full color--less artistic and more up front and candid. But oh my, are these well-rounded perfect bottoms..that's all you see, pictures are from torso to thighs only. Everyone's in a thong, but that hides only the x-rated details, which is not what this one's about. It's bottoms only, and in that it gets a 10. Zebra, 2016. Out of Print. Mature Readers...More.

HOT NAKED BABES 2017 Calendar
The companion to the hugely popular Mystique X-Posed Nude Wall Calendar is back for a fourth year! This calendar contains full nudity of beautiful women from the pages of Mystique Magazine, but is not quite as revealing as the X-Posed calendar--tasteful crotch shots, as it were! These models are from Mystique Magazine, as well as Playboy, Penthouse, Maxim, Sports Illustrated and on the internet--top American, Asian, Canadian and European models baring it all without swimsuits or anything else for that matter. Sirens, 2016. Adult Material...More.

HOT RIDES 2017 Calendar
Almost Gone! What is sexier than a beautiful woman on a hot bike? Well, how about a girl in a bikini on a hot bike, or maybe a few even topless (though discreetly viewed from the back). It's certainly not something you see every day, probably not any day. Not ladies like this. Photographed by Eric Perlman, this twelve-month calendar features images of scorchin' beautiful girls on awesome motorcycles out under the sun, thighs wrapped around that chrome and leather! No full nudity. Zebra, 2016. Out of Print. Mature Readers...More.

TOTALLY NUDE HOT GIRLS 2017 Calendar
The first and second editions of this calendar quickly sold out each of the last two years. From classy to raunchy, with two-thirds of the large photos featuring exposed you-know-what. The photos spread over a page and a half each, like the size of a Playboy centerfold. Models are all identified, from Alexis Crystal to Savannah Secret...? Sirens, 2016. Adult Material...More.

THE HOT LIST The 12 Sexiest Hotties 2017 Calendar
Almost Gone! By Raquel Rischard. The Hot List Wall Calendar is just that: the 12 hottest models in Hollywood, bustier and maybe just a bit more seriously voluptuous than the more innocent (?) looking girls you'd find on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Calendar. And the outfits range from hiked up skirts and lingerie, to a plaid vintage outfit that is overflowing with, well, you know. As one of the hot girls herself, Raquel developed her skills in front of the camera as a star model in men's magazines. From her years of modeling, she found her true calling behind the camera, further developing her eye for the true Hollywood glamour look. Zebra, 2016. Out of Print. Mature Readers...More.
