    Sex and Horror SC (2015-2021 Korero Books) 3-1ST Sex and Horror SC (2015-2021 Korero Books) 3-1ST

    Volume 3 - 1st printing. "The Art of Fernando Carcupino!"

    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
