Smokey - A Tijuana Bible
Tijuana Bibles (also known as " eight-pagers ") were produced in the US from the 1920s to the early 1960s. Their popularity peaked during the Depression era. The typical "bible" is with black printing on cheap white paper, and eight pages long. In most cases the artists, writers and publishers of these tracts are unknown. The art is usually crude. Their subject is explicit sexual escapades, usually featuring well known cartoon characters, political figures or movie stars (used without permission). BigFootCat’s Father found this amongst HIS father’s collection in the 1950’s (when he was a teenager). This collection has moved ‘cross country and wasn’t thought of until recently—when BigFootCat opened the store and started researching collectibles. Big Foot Cat says, "DUE TO ADULT CONTENT MATTER YOU MUST BE 18 YEARS OR OLDER TO VIEW OR PURCHASE THIS MAGAZINE". The condition of this comic is very good considering its age as you can determine from the photo. It has a front and rear cover, is stapled and contains all eight pages none of which are ripped or torn. The story line contains the sexual antics of Smokey the Fireman. They are portrayed very graphicly in a humorous fashion.
