Stanton and Offutt were not only colleagues who collaborated on original erotic comics & graphic novels, notably "Stantoons" & "Blunder Broad" digests, they were also close friends. Offutt was an avid science fiction author noted for "Conan"-themed fantasies, debuted in 1951, wrote erotic novels as John Cleve, Turk Winter, John Denis, Jeff Morehead, Opal Andrews, others. His "Spaceways" space opera series is perhaps the ultimate melding of science-fiction & erotica. He & Stanton could be credited w/ surviving & propagating the publishing crash of the 1970s as VHS brought new audiences to adult entertainment, while converting previous generations. Very Good Plus, spine and front cover creases, slight lean. For consenting, mature audiences, and the fetish lover on the go, fits in any pocket.
