Stuck Rubber Baby HC (1995 Paradox Press Edition) comic books
Paradox Press (1st) Edition - 1st Edition - 1st printing. Story and art by HOWARD CRUSE. In the 1960s American South, a young gas-station attendant named Toland Polk is rejected from the Army draft for admitting "homosexual tendencies," and falls in with a close-knit group of young locals yearning to break from the conformity of their hometown through civil rights activism, folk music and upstart communality of race-mixing, gay-friendly nightclubs. Toland's story is both deeply personal and epic in scope, as his search for identity plays out against the brutal fight over segregation, an unplanned pregnancy and small-town bigotry, aided by an unforgettable supporting cast. Hardcover, 224 pages, B&W. Mature Reader Cover price $24.99.
