1972-1982 / Kitchen Sink

_
One of the great series in underground history, Denis Kitchen's Bizarre Sex was launched in May, 1972. One could discern that this would be a "no-holds-barred" type of publication upon perusing the first issue, as the first two stories were about brother/sister incest and interracial homosexuality. Bizarre Sex became best known for issue #9, which introduced Omaha the Cat Dancer with a story that took up the whole book. After another appearance in Bizarre Sex #10, Omaha moved on to its own successful serial.

The great thing about Bizarre Sex is the series matured through the years, evolving from a comic book about atypical sex into more of an in-depth review of sexual relations and the human condition.
