Erotic Comics: A Graphic History (Volume 1)

Here's the covers for my latest book, Erotic Comics: A Graphic History (Volume 1):

This is the UK cover, which is by a very obscure Argentine artist from the 1930s called George Fossey or Cerre Fussey or something like that (his signature is impossible to read). It came from an old Argentine men's magazine which he did several illustrations. I've been searching everywhere online for more information on this guy, because I love his work, but can't find anything. Can anyone out there help?

You can buy the UK version here

This is the US edition's cover by my good mate Garry Leach, who really went to town on this. It's a homage to the work of Bill Ward, yet manages to keep Garry's distinctive style. I may post his rejected designs for this, with his permission, at  later date. Very racy stuff! You can buy this edition here.

Hey Tim - is there any difference between the UK and US editions, apart from the cover?

Hi Dylan,

Long time no chat. No, that's the only difference. The UK publisher didn't like what Garry had painted (despite paying for it) whereas the US publisher did.

Any plans to hit the northern hemisphere soon?

All the best.

Can anyone tell me who drew the cover for volume 2?

Oops, Sorry "Anonymous", only just saw your posting (two years later)! The cover to volume 2 was by Italian artist Giovanna Casotto, one of my favourite artists of all time.
