Though never on the scale of its American counterpart, there was indeed a comics underground in Great Britain. Many of these comics were obscure limited print run productions and few were financially successful. But with subject matter that was anarchic and sexually unrestrained, this political pornography' did indeed have an impact-and invariably caught the wary eye of the law, resulting in several landmark Obscenity cases.

From their origins in the 1960s, Nasty Tales covers the turbulent history of these comics and the cultural instability from which they emerged.

About the Author: David Huxley lectures in the Department of History of Art and Design at Manchester Metropolitan University.
