SEX, DEATH, HELL & SUPERHEROES
with Tim Pilcher & Hayley Campbell
From Wonder Woman's 1940s bondage fantasies, through costume play fetishism, and right up to the logical conclusion of the LA porn industry making "superhero porn parodies" Tim Pilcher, author of the bestselling Erotic Comics: A Graphic History, takes you on a turgid tour through 70 years of carnal caped comics!
What becomes of a 3-year-old whose father goes to the butcher and asks for bits of cow to use as picture reference for the insides of disembowelled prostitutes? She becomes totally obsessed with death. Hayley Campbell, daughter of Eddie Campbell (FROM HELL) and biographer for Neil Gaiman, takes you on an autobiographical history of horror comics.
