This chapter includes a 2018 commentary about Comics Stripped (2011) at the Museum of Sex in New York curated by publisher/collector Craig Yoe and Sarah Forbes. Covering the decades between the Great Depression to the present, the exhibit featured art by Joe Shuster, R. Crumb, Wally Wood, Jack Cole, Tom Finland, and many others. Topics included Tijuana Bibles (“The People’s Pornography”), 1950’s men’s magazines, censorship crusades, the underground comix revolution, fetish art by Joe Shuster (as featured in Yoe’s book Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman’s Co-Creator Joe Shuster) and Eric Stanton, cartoon porn, same sex comics, and international comics. This chapter includes commentary by curator, collector, and publisher Craig Yoe about how this extensive examination of sexual taboos and other naughty bits came about, as well as his thoughts about sharing his collection and the public response to the show. Images: two exhibition photos
