"Historietas Perversas" are filthy, adult Mexican Comic Books. I remember seeing them all over the place when I was 18 on my trip to Mexico City. I didn't really notice anything special about them at the time, they just looked like cartoon porno. Recently I discovered a book called "The Imp No. 4" which provided pictures and information about the comics. I was really surprised to see how well-drawn and cool some of the cover illustrations looked.
There was one artist inparticular named Oscar Bazaldúa whose style I REALLY liked. His style is distinct and very recognizable (especially in comparison to the other artists). Below are covers that are drawn by Oscar Bazaldúa.
I would really like to get my hands on these so I can start archiving the covers illustrated by Bazaldúa. I havn't had any luck finding a place to buy them online. They aren't even on ebay. It seems like my only option is going to Mexico..
Some of these comic titles include "Almas Perversas," "La Ley del Revolver," "La Ley de la Calle," "Yo Confieso," "Relatos de Presidio," and "Las Chambeadoras."
If you have any information regarding how to purchase these comics online, please let me know in the comments!
