Received an early birthday present today from a dear friend, who was with me when I picked up Cinema Sewer Volumes 1 through 4… Robin Bougie’s "Graphic Thrills: American XXX Movie Posters 1970 to 1985".
"People like Stan Lee have offered me series to do, comic series, and I’ve always had to turn them down," Vaughn Bode told an interviewer in 1974. “I insist on having, first of all, my own rights…the only one who’s ever been able to protect my rights was myself. Most artists, especially when I first met them, were selling all their rights in New York all over the place, to publishers who were very greedy monsters, and they’d take away everything if they could. But now things are changing, in the last few years.”
