These comics participated in and addressed counterpublics, which queer theorist Michael Warner defines as “formed by their conflict with the norms and contexts of their cultural environment.” Yet much of the scholarship of the underground comix movement has centered on straight white men located in San Francisco (e.g. R. Crumb, S. Clay Wilson).
