    1st printing.

    Between the late 1960s and the late 1980s, Italy went crazy for "sexy fumetti," a home-grown genre of adult comics with a unique brand of twisted humor, violence, and up-front sexuality.

    One of the most talented and prolific of the cover artists at Edifumetto, the foremost Italian producer of adult comics during this period, was Alessandro Biffignandi, whose work featured horror, fantasy, and sci-fi elements alongside plenty of naked female flesh.

    This book is a collection of some of the sexiest examples of Biffigandi's cover art for Edifumetto, which is highly coveted by collectors today.

    Softcover, 9-in. x 12-in., 140 pages, full color. Mature Readers

    Cover price $32.95.

  • Issue #1-1ST
    Sex and Horror: The Art of Fernando Carcupino SC (2020 Korero Books) 1-1ST Sex and Horror: The Art of Fernando Carcupino SC (2020 Korero Books) 1-1ST

    1st printing.

    This is the third volume in the Sex and Horror series, which celebrates the publishing craze known as "fumetti sexy": Italian adult comics and cartoons with a unique take on such genres as horror, crime, fantasy, history, and fairy tales. Their success was due in part to their uninhibited mix of twisted humor, gory violence, and up-front eroticism, but the element that makes them so collectible today is their technicolor cover illustrations, rendered by classically trained painters.

    This book focuses on the work of Fernando Carcupino, famed not just for his comic work but his pinups, as well.

    Softcover, 9-in. x 10-in., 192 pages, full color. Mature Readers

    Cover price $36.95.
