Alternative Comics

Many of the books in this collection contain extremely mature themes, language and imagery — We strongly suggest a reading age of 18+

Alternative comics, are comic books that are intended for more mature audiences and generally stay away from the mainstream comic book themes, storylines, art style and also stay away from mainstream publishing. 

This collection may also contain some books that would be considered Underground Comix from the 60's, 70's and 80's that were seen as socially relevant or satirical in nature. They often depict content forbidden to mainstream publications by the Comics Code Authority, including explicit drug use, sexuality, violence and oftentimes socially problematic behavior. 

In other words, Underground Comix contain a lot of racist and sexist nonsense that everyone thought was really funny, progressive and thought provoking in the 60's and 70's. No one said they were smart. 

You have been warned.
