Dessert by Spain

'Dessert' by Spain
from Young Lust No. 5, 1977
celebrating Pride Month 2018



Its content meant that this strip was not included in Spain's 2012 compilation Cruisin' with the Hound:The Life and Times of Fred Toote

In an interview published in that book, Spain alludes to violent encounters with closeted gays when he roamed the streets of Buffalo, New York as a teenaged hoodlum in the 50s. While only 14 years old at the time, Spain was a willing participant in the antics of his fellow gangsters, as depicted below.
