Bad Mags 2: The Strangest, Sleaziest, and Most Unusual Periodicals Ever Published!

BAD MAGS VOL 2 continues to collect the colourful and sometimes shocking news-stand publications of the 1960s through to the 1980s that together provide a fascinating-and occasionally biased, humorous and exploitative-counterpoint to news events and the burgeoning countercutlure scene. Chapters are divided into subject categories for easy reference, such as sexploitation, Sharon Tate and Charles Manson, Ed Wood Jr, outlaw bikers, the occult, the mob and punk. Author Tom Brinkmann has spoken with many of the individuals responsible for these magazines, some of whom are referenced here for the first time. BAD MAGS VOL 2 also provides comprehensive background details on the creators and often maverick publishers, along with plenty of anecdotal information, mind bending extracts and hundreds of rare photos and cover reproductions.
