From 1975 to 1986, Belier Press released 24 volumes of "Bizarre Comix". These were reprints of bondage cartoon serials from the 1950s, sold via mail order by Irving Klaw. The artists included Eric Stanton, Gene (Eneg) Bilbrew, Jim, Ruiz and Mario. Each volume was devoted to a single artist and included 2 or 3 complete serials and introductions by publisher J.B. Rund which contained important historical information on the artists and Klaw's business operations.
The original issues of Bizarre Comix are long out of print and highly sought after collector's items.
Through a collaboration between Belier Press and Bonvue, the first 5 issues of Bizarre Comix have been reissued. Each volume has been redesigned with full color covers and with new introductions by J. B. Rund. The reprint campaign unfortunately only lasted for the first 6 volumes, and it appears that no further issues will be forthcoming.
