    Description

    Tijuana Bible Comix Group (Various, 1930s-60s). Collection of "Tijuana Bibles", the notorious little eight-page sex comic that was a true precursor to the Undergrounds of the sixties and seventies. There are 54 books, a few dating back to the 1930s, but the majority appearing to have been latter-day reprints. Condition ranges from Fair (one book is completely split, with all pages loose) to VF. These are mostly based on comic strip characters, rather than real life personalities. Some of the more creative assignations here involve Tess Tracy and Sam Catchem (!) as well as Mae West and Popeye. Characters range from A-listers such as Archie to Moon Mullins, the Gumps, and Fritzi Ritz, to Casey Ruggles and Steve Roper (in different books, mind you!). Even Astra, Girl of the Future, that Sensation Comics #99-106 backup feature, gets the dubious honor of her own book here.
