The '60s-era "comix" movement shifted the comic book genre from Sunday funnies and superheroes to transgressive sex, gross-out imagery, and drug use. Brian Doherty's Dirty Pictures tells the whole story. Hippies and creatives dug the medium's new direction, and comix thrived in zines and underground publications, with panels drawn by weirdo masterminds like R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, and Harvey Pekar. What started with wacky humor made a lasting cultural impression—comix reframed popular thinking on the war, racial justice, gender expression, and more.
