Sex and Horror, Volume 5: The Art of ROberto Molino
Paperback – Korero Press – Jan 2023 – 156 pages
This is the fifth title in the bestselling series Sex and Horror, which celebrates the publishing phenomenon known as “fumetti sexy” – Italian adult comics with a unique take on such genres as horror, crime, fantasy, history, and fairy tales.
Wilder and weirder than you can imagine, they were some of the most outrageous and shocking comics ever produced. The comics were hugely successful due in part to their uninhibited mix of twisted humor, gory violence, and up-front eroticism; however, what makes them so sought-after today is their technicolor cover illustrations rendered by classically trained painters.
One of the most notorious of the cover artists was Roberto Molino, whose artworks often parodied the popular TV shows and films of the day, including Kojak (Kondor), The Bionic Woman (Bionika), and Rambo (Raimbo).
This book brings together some of the sexiest and most provocative examples of his work, which is highly coveted by collectors today.
