Gold Digger Swimsuit Special

 GDSS   (Antarctic, 2000, 2004-2016)

™ and ©2000 Fred Perry

Not to be outdone by the swimsuit issues so commonly released by all the major publishers, Antarctic Press released this special in May 2000, featuring the characters from the beautiful Diggers family. If Manga cheesecake is your thing, you’ll love this collection, featuring pinups from more than a dozen artists, including creator Fred Perry and Joe Weltjens, Ted Nomura, Joe Wight, Lea Hernandez and many others. Unlike most swimsuit specials, this edition does have a welcome extra: actual comics stories, including a whimsical 7-page beach-blanket-bingo farce by Nick White and a charming “Around the World in Eight Pages” by Holly Daughtrey and Hiro-San. As swimsuit comics go, it’s certainly not anything for, say, the “Sports Illustrated” crowd. But for Manga fans and Gold Digger series completists, it’s worth the $4.50 cover price.
