So You Think You Have Problems?
Looking for that special comic from 40, 50, even 60 years ago to give your loved one struggling with VD, diabetes, AIDS, marijuana, guns or just about anything else? Musician Ethan Persoff may have just what you seek.
Comics With Problems collects various unintentionally hilarious public service advertisements in the form of comics, with titles like Rex Morgan M.D. Talks About Your Unborn Child and A Message about Sniffing for Young People, and presents them in their entirety for your edification and amusement. I D.A.R.E. you to keep away from perusing it!
Elsewhere on his site, Persoff’s other ambitious project on his site is collecting an online archive of all issues of Paul Krassner’s seminal zine The Realist, but I notice he doesn’t have any from the ’80s when I was getting it. Persoff — call me, I still have ’em all. And say, you wouldn’t happen to know of an old comic warning of the dangers of being a packrat, would you?
