Comic books, especially sex related ones, faced a hard time (due to strict regulation by the Comics Code Authority) before they finally found their place in the mainstream publishing. The organization has ruled that “Illicit sex relations are neither to be hinted at nor portrayed. Violent love scenes as well as sexual abnormalities are unacceptable.” And, even the mere mention of homosexuality in mainstream American comics was forbidden by the code until 1989. However, such restrictions led to the birth of the underground revolution. What started as a small-scale movement gained tremendous momentum, and larger publishers began taking notice; many underground artists later gained critical success in mainstream comics publishing.
