CBLDF #6 Outlaw Art: The Trials of Underground Comix

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Underground comix were more than an art revolution-they were a scandal in the courts! Busts spread from Berkeley to New York as law enforcement used obscenity laws to crack down on this renegade form of free expression. How did the creators and publishers of this historical art movement take the heat? Join Ron Turner, publisher of Last Gasp and Air Pirates, which was convicted in California; Robert Williams of Zap Comix #4,which was convicted in New York; and Joyce Farmer, iconic underground cartoonist and editor of the controversial Abortion Eve for this freewheeling discussion moderated by CBLDF executive director Charles Brownstein.
