Red Guard Romance, by Jay Kinney

Jay Kinney was part of the 1970s underground comix scene from the beginning. His work first appeared in Bijou Funnies in 1968, and he co-founded the satire of romance comics, Young Lust Comix, with Bill Griffith in 1970. He produced and edited several other publications, such as Occult Laff-Parade in 1973, Cover-up Lowdown with Paul Mavrides in 1977, and Anarchy Comics (1978-1987). He was editorial cartoonist for In These Times in 1979-80, editor of Co-Evolution Quarterly (1983-84) and publisher and editor-in-chief of the esoteric spiritual magazine Gnosis (1985-1999). Kinney and Mavrides designed the website for Infinite Matrix, an online science fiction magazine, and provided illustrations for the fiction at the site.

Kinney made a graphic contribution to 'ProJunior’ (Kitchen Sink Press, 1971), a one-shot comic book paying homage to Don Dohler's character ProJunior. He wrote a personal homage to Robert Crumb in Monte Beauchamp's book 'The Life and Times of R. Crumb. Comments From Contemporaries (St. Martin's Griffin, New York, 1998).
