As a kind of coda to last week’s chat with Larusson & Pyszczek, here’s a drawing from Tom of Finland’s ‘Circus’. It was one in a series of comic books with the well-drawn Pekka (his other adventures included ‘The Loggers’, ‘The Rope’ and ‘Sex in the Shed’). These two — ‘Ladies and Gentlemen! The Flying Fuckers!’ — were the centerfold.

Originally published by Revolt Press in 1977, Finland’s and writer Ed Wood’s story of Pekka’s search for a job at the circus sees him fuck and suck his way through a cast of hunks like The Flying Fuckers and Cockman (who has the strongest cock in the world). Pekka gets so horny he spontaneously lays eggs.
