Oh, Wicked Wanda!
Beginning in 1972, OH, WICKED WANDA!, PENTHOUSE magazine's answer to Kurtzman and Elder's LITTLE ANNIE FANNY, was a British production, written with a politically and sexually satirical bent by author Frederic Mullaly and painted by classic English comics artist Ron Embleton. In 1975, PENTHOUSE published the now-rare collection seen here which I managed to purchase off the stands in spite of the fact that I was only 16 at the time. Sometimes that prematurely grey hair came in handy. Well, I had been planning to write a piece about OH, WICKED WANDA!, but it all seems so pointless now when this obsessive site-- Oh Wicked Wanda!--offers every little detail you could possibly want to know including the actual stories themselves! Thanks to Curt over on the virtual other side of town at The Groovy Age of Horror for pointing out the site. Adults only, please! Sigh. Some days it's all a blogger can do to keep up!
