Sex and erotic themes have had a long and significant presence in the story of underground comics, and unsurprisingly this has been accompanied by controversy and brushes with the law. In the first half of this event in two parts, artist Melinda Gebbie
talks to Rachel Cooke of The Observer about the extraordinary Lost Girls
– an explicit and dreamlike graphic novel created together with Alan Moore over the course of 16 years. And in the second half, one of the most prolific, and often persecuted, illustrators of gay fiction and magazines Oliver Frey
