May 30th, 2017 by chrisandreggie
Grab your pickaxes and mining helmets, this week Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) uncover the seedy underbelly of comics history! First, a detailed look at Tijuana Bibles and a sadistic sex comic drawn by Superman co-creator, Joe Shuster. Then we take a long look at the careers of satirist and publisher Harvey Kurtzman and talented yet tragic Wally Wood, including their independently-produced works that would be so influential to a generation of comics creators. Will the reason behind the "X" in "comix" be revealed? You'll have to listen to find out!
Will Eisner speaks well of Harvey Kurtzman at the Dallas Fantasy Fair on July 5, 1990
