Collecting dope related ephemera includes more than just vintage drug exploitation paperbacks. It extends into other genres such as magazines, hardcover books, and comics such as the one pictured above. This is an example of how the "dope menace" was portrayed in the comics, before the dreadful Code came along to Disney up everything. Notice the passed out drug addicts depicted in the background, and the woman shrieking in horror. I'm sure her horror stems from being caught by the fuzz.
FringePop is a showcase for uncommon and esoteric cultural artifacts. The focus is on unusual items from both popular and fringe culture, with an emphasis on subversive pieces. The items shown are from the author's personal collection, unless otherwise noted.
I am a pop culture buff and collector, who focuses on the odd, subversive, and fringe elements of Western culture. In 2005, I edited a book for Feral House called "Sin-A-Rama: Sleaze Sex Paperbacks of the Sixties." The vintage oddities in my collection include victoriana, sideshow, medical, and kitsch. I am also an amateur sewer, making clothing from vintage mod patterns.
