A sexy, revealing journey into the heart of erotic comic strips, SEX IN THE COMIX examines the colorful history of a unique and risqué art form. With New York comic artist and burlesque performer Molly Crabapple as our guide, this compact documentary navigates the history of the art form, from special editions by masters of the genre to provocative new works from a young generation of artists. Featuring legendary comic creators R. Crumb, Manara and Ralf König, as well as new wave and mainstream artists, including Alison Bechdel and her game-changing FUN HOME, this stimulating documentary takes fans along on a special exploration into a one-of-a-kind medium. As the erotic comic is poised to make a big-time comeback, it serves as an expression of society’s most intimate trials and exposes our collective, if taboo, fantasies (all via speech bubbles).
