The Tower of the Comic Book Freaks #4

Fourth of July, 1971. Five awkward, young men drive to New York in search of love, sex, art, comic books and a glimpse at the city's wicked underbelly. What they encounter changes their lives forever. Visit a pivotal time as comics change from a business to an art form. Meet Allan Caldwell, comic artist, blacklisted since the 1950s for his testimony to the U.S. Congressional Inquiry. Tour the greatest city in America during a period of social disintegration. THIS ISSUE: "If She Becomes Famous He'll Sell the Photos". Allan Caldwell has contracted with Wonder Comics to draw a comic book featuring the publisher’s daughter, June. Caldwell convinces the publisher that he needs to take near nude photos of her to draw realistically. She feels humiliated but acquiesces. Her parents want her to become a celebrity and they see the starting point as their comic company. Allan Caldwell recruits a reluctant Harold to ghost the comic. Allan Caldwell is certain that under his tutelage Harold can create a high quality product. Caldwell is supposed to judge the Wonder Comics art contest but assigns that task to Harold as well. "In one word...PHENOMENAL." - Stephen Lipson, historian, consultant to the Overstreet Price Guide.
