History / Biographical Note

History

From 1975 to 1986, Belier Press, located in New York City, released 24 volumes of "Bizarre Comix". These were reprints of bondage cartoon serials from the 1950s, sold via mail order by Irving Klaw. The artists included Eric Stanton, Gene (Eneg) Bilbrew, Jim, Ruiz and Mario. Each volume was devoted to a single artist and included 2 or 3 complete serials and introductions by publisher J.B. Rund which contained important historical information on the artists and Klaw's business operations.
