The Erotic Mind of Howard Cruse — Podcast #156 — 09/28/09
Hey sex fans,
I have a spectacular interview for you. I welcome the granddaddy of gay comix, Howard Cruse. He is here as part of The Erotic Mind
podcast series. As you know, for well over a year now I’ve been chatting with noted erotic artists, both visual and literary, from all over the freakin world in an effort to try to uncover something of the creative process involved in this specialized art form. Howard is the most senior person to join me in this effort. And he brings with him a historical perspective unlike that of any other of my previous guests.
In fact, I think it is safe to say that very gay or lesbian who has put pen to paper to create a comix or cartoon over the last 40 years can trace his or her lineage back to the groundbreaking work of my guest. This is remarkable stuff, kids; you don’t want to miss a moment of this.
Howard and I discuss:
- His erotic novel, Stuck Rubber Baby.
- Why he’s know as a bigfoot cartoonist.
- Adding words to his illustrations.
- Why he contends his work is not erotic per se.
- From Headrack to Claude.
- The evolution of the character, Headrack. in Barefootz.
- The man behind Claude of Then There Was Claude.
- Being there — The Stonewall Inn, June 1969.
- His personal coming out story.
