A group of eight pocket-size American pornographic comic books, in circulation from the 1920s-60s

Each item is approximately 75 × 100 mm, with 8 pages of single-panel captioned artwork plus flush-cut pictorial thin card covers.

Expert infill to the top corner of one last leaf (a few words of text are missing, but the graphic clearly enables one to get the drift); trifling signs of handling; overall in excellent condition.

As one might expect, these timeless classics come with no imprint details, as their publication was illegal, and their distribution clandestine. These examples surfaced in Australia, and we suggest they were probably a visiting US serviceman's personal contribution to Australia's Second World War efforts. The titles are 'Alley Oop'; 'Clark Gabel [sic] in "The Shiek"'; 'Dan Dunn - crowded with sex and action!'; 'Dorothy Lamour in "Purple Passion in the South Seas"'; 'Dumb Dora'; 'Mac and Tillie: "The Old Boy needs Help"'; 'Polly: "It's really an Art"'; and 'Skippy has a Dream'. [8 items].
