5.0 out of 5 stars Classic early gay comics, 3 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tom of Finland: Volume 1: Comic Collection 1 (Hardcover)
This volume reprints twelve of Tom of Finland's comic-book stories (as opposed to pin-ups, etc.), including one previously unpublished colour comic, along with an Introduction by the editor giving Tom's biographical details.

The Contents are -
P006: Introduction
P020: Unpublished (colour comic from 1946)
P038: Kake #1 -The Intruder (1968)
P058: Kake #3 - C*ck-Hungry Cops (1968)
P078: Kake #5 - Punishment (1970)
P100: Kake #7 - Tea Room Odyssey [though `cottaging' would be the appropriate British title] (1970)
P122: Kake #8 - Hi-Jacked (1971)
P142: Kake #10 - Raunchy Truckers (1971)
P162: Beach Boys #1 (1971)
P184: Beach Boys #2 (1971)
P206: Jack of the Jungle #1 - The White Hunter (1971)
P226: Jack of the Jungle #2 - R*pe of the Jungle Giant (1972)
P248: Jack of the Jungle #3 - Jungle Seafood (1972)

Note that I have added a few asterisks to spare Amazon's blushes... Note also that the Introduction is only four pages in English as there are German and French-language versions also. Each story is 20 pages, plus cover, except the unpublished one, which is only 16 pages. For those of you unfamiliar with Tom's comics, each page is a single panel, reproduced here at half-size - at least my copies of the individual Jack of the Jungle comics are printed as A4; other editions may have differed. As to the content of the stories, the titles listed above tell you exactly what to expect - they depict various numbers of men happily and graphically engaging in what nowadays would be called unsafe sex, so enter at your peril.
