Last Gasp 1975-78
Only George DiCaprio would host such a macabre feast as Forbidden Knowledge. Filled with stories of cannibalism, incest, castration and exhumed corpses, the two-issue series wallows joyfully in its depravity. In the first issue, Jim Himes “Blood Lust of the Tupinamba” is particularly gruesome. The story about Russian castrators by Rich Chidlaw, also in the first issue, is dedicated to George’s newborn son, the “Mighty Leonardo!” (I’m guessing Leo was circumcised!).
