Grit newspaper advertisement parody

Grit newspaper advertisement parody
by Jay Kinney
from Young Lust No. 2, 1971


Grit was a weekly newspaper that began publishing in 1882 and is still in circulation - as a magazine - today (you can find a one-year subscription at amazon). Grit was designed for a rural readership, and from the 40s to the 70s it promoted 'paperboy' distribution by routinely featuring full-color advertisements on the back covers and interiors of comic books.

Underground comix legend Jay Kinney showed particular genius in putting together this loud-out-loud-funny parody for issue 2 of Young Lust.
