Hey sex fans,

It’s National Coming Out Week, ya’ll!  And to celebrate I welcome back that genius of the howardcruse1comix world, Howard Cruse.  He’s here to finish the chat we began last Monday, as part of The Erotic Mind
podcast series, don’t cha know.

Howard is a national treasure; his unique historical perspective on the comix art form, one that spans from the rise of the underground comics movement in the 1960’s right through to today, is both exciting and thought provoking.
