Reader discretion is advised. While obviously there have been comic books about sex in the United States since the beginning of the 20th Century, these comics were almost always simply Tijuana Bibles, childish attempts at drawing popular celebrities and comic characters in sexual situations to appeal to the lowest common denominator. When it comes to actual good comic books involving sex, the American comic book market has lagged well behind Europe and Japan, where comic books about sex are quite common. However, as the years have gone by, there have been a number of good pieces of comic book erotica released from American comic book companies and that number has been growing steadily in recent years as the taboo element of these types of stories has begun to fade although, again, not to the point where any of these comics would be safe to read at work. The magazine failed very quickly due to cash problems by Hefner, but an apologetic Hefner gave Kurtzman free office space where he tried to launch follow-up efforts. In addition, Kurtzman kept pitching Hefner on features for Playboy and finally, Hefner agreed to publish a sex parody comic series within the pages of Playboy called Little Orphan Fanny a parody of Harold Gray's famous comic strip, Little Orphan Annie. Drawn by Kurtzman's longtime collaborator, Will Elder, the strip followed the naively optimistic Fanny into various funny situations where she would invariably end up naked.
