Created as an answer to the question: Why aren’t there any REALLY dirty comics coming out of the self-published comix scene, Sleazy Slice came into being in 2007, and is published annually every February. Editor Robin Bougie, publisher and creator of Cinema Sewer magazine does his best to create and track down the most entertaining dirty comics he can find in the underground amongst his circle of talented pals.

“I wanted to create an old fashioned comic anthology that harkened back to the types of undergrounds published in the 70s and early 80s. Socially irredeemable stuff glefully packed of nekkidness and violence. Comics like “Feltch”, “Deviant Slice”, “Amputee Love”, and “White Whore Funnies”. Sequential art that was just unapologetically filthy, weird, and devoid of pretense or agenda. I don’t think we have enough of that now.”

But boundry-pushing has it’s detractions. Even though the work is of a very technically professional quality, it totally lacks distribution and is woefully unavailable to all but those in the know. “It’s just too fucking dirty and gross. The distributers don’t want to touch it”, lamented Bougie. “You have to be lucky enough to live near a comic store that orders it directly, or buy it from me in person from my website. It’s about as underground as you can get.”
