FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK: Joan Hilty on STUCK RUBBER BABY

In her wonderful introduction to our new edition of Howard Cruse’s Eisner-winning graphic novel STUCK RUBBER BABY, originally published in 1995, Alison Bechdel (Fun Home) writes: “Howard recreates the details of life in the South during ‘Kennedytime’ with a staggering archival fidelity…accomplished long before there was such a thing as Google Image Search.

STUCK RUBBER BABY

STUCK RUBBER BABY by Howard Cruse will be re-issued in 2010 with a new introduction by Alison Bechdel creator of Fun Home.

In this award-winning tale of prejudice and hatred, a young white man deals with his acceptance of his homosexuality as he fights for the civil rights of African Americans during the 1960s. A poignant and realistic look into the darkness of bigotry, STUCK RUBBER BABY is a thought-provoking coming-of-age tale told during one of America's most socially troubled eras.
