BOOK PREVIEW

Weird Love: That's The Way I Like It! (Volume 2)



Michelle Nolan, writer of the groundbreaking book Love on the Racks: A History of American Romance Comics, provides a fascinating introduction to Weird Love: That's The Way I Like It!, the second sleazy and stupefying volume in the series that Wired magazine calls "deranged genius!"

 

You'll love, you'll hate these lurid stories: "Too Fat to Frug," "Men You Shouldn't Marry," "Leader of the Pack," "Love Slaves," "Stay Away From Married Men," "Trailer Park Girl: Flirtation on Wheels," "Mail-Order Marriage," "Thrill Crazy!," and other classics of Good Girl Art! There are first-person pulp confessionals like "I Was a Border Racket Girl," "I Was Too Beautiful," "I Was a Waterfront Girl," "I Was a Child Bride," "I Married a Monster," and much more cringe-worthy, laugh-riot comic book kitsch!

Praise for "Krazy Kat and the Art George Herriman: A Celebration":


"Before the world met a mouse named Mickey or a feline named Felix, there was Krazy Kat and his pals Ignatz Mouse and Offissa Pupp."
--Liesl Bradner, Los Angeles Times

"A handsome new book!"
--Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post

"Craig Yoe has dug up never-published artwork, artifacts, and letters that will bring Herriman to life for the uninitiated while giving fans something new to feast on."
--Chris Nichols, LA Magazine

"Yoe's affection for the subject and its creator is clear from the loving attention to detail found from cover to cover."
--Robert Greenberger, ComicMix.com
