Holy Sh*t! The Worlds Weirdest Comic Books (USA)
by Paul Gravett & Peter Stanbury
From leather nuns to lesbian unicorns, you won’t believe your eyes when you look inside The Leather Nun And Other Incredibly Strange Comics. From the creators of Graphic Novels and Great British Comics, this is a delirious collection of more than 60 of most weird and wonderful comics ever published.
Notorious comic book brainiacs Paul Gravett and Peter Stanbury have scoured the world to bring together a non-PC carnival of comic-book curiosities. American Presidents become muscle-bound superheroes, a massive Japanese monster plays basketball, cavemen fight giant tabby cats and a peasant girl fervently worships the swastika. Are you ready for Russia’s busty bombshell Octobriana? What about getting your groove on with Mod Love? Can you take the flesh-eating farm animals in The Barn of Fear? If you can stomach these, you might want to try Fatman the Human Flying Saucer, Chaplains at War, Amputee Love or Fast Willie Jackson.
Gravett & Stanbury present the ultimate parade of rare and crazy comics, each featured in a colourful double-page spread with the eye-popping cover shown on a full page. The Leather Nun will make the perfect quirky gift for comics fans, aficionados of pop culture - and anyone with a taste for offbeat humour.
“The perfect gift for any comic book lover or pervert in your life.”
