Paul Swartz for Vintage Sleaze Contemporary #6 in the Series Contemporary Vintage Sleaze
New World Nude Revue by Paul Swartz 2011 for Vintage Sleaze Contemporary Click to Enlarge
Cartoonist Paul Swartz contributes his version of "Contemporary Vintage Sleaze" with an international flair and the TRUE pursuit of happiness...a DAME!
Paul Swartz is off to a strong start. A young MFA student, he has already done considerable work and is well immersed in the comics community. Frontal positions and extreme color are his obvious strengths, but more so is his world view...comics are universal, and why shouldn't a cartoonist be the same?
His clever comic "A Vanishing Act" tells the story of a vaudeville performer with one talent...mimicry. A good story well reviewed in The Comics Journal by Rob Cough HERE. The tough audience here is a draft which didn't make the story, but you can see the final version HERE.
The full novel is up on the Paul Swartz Website "The People's Republic of Paul"
Parts of "The Jaws of Defeat" are also shown as well as a number of one-offs, stickers and more.
When asked to contribute to the Vintage Sleaze Contemporary Series (on the basis of the tiny little red dames celebrating below) Mr Swartz applies his world view in a massive way in "New World Nude Revue'...these "tired and poor" are being tempted with the tease of Miss Liberty. Any man's dream and certainly worth the travel.
