The Tijuana Bible

    (Starhead, 1994-1998, 2006–2007)
©1994 Starhead Comix

“Tijuana bibles” were a small, illustrated books featuring cartoons of people engaged in various sex acts. These books concentrated on the basics; the nine or ten-panel cartoons featured basic wish-fulfillment such as sexual hijinks at the World’s Fair or showing such notables as Martha Raye getting wild with the hired help. Tijuana bibles hit their heyday in the 1930s, after which their crudely drawn illustrations were eventually replaced by the photographs characteristic of pornography today.

Somehow Starhead Comix got hold of several of these old naughty books and compiled them into a series of comic books. It makes for an interesting look back at the early days of “dirty books.”
