Stuck Rubber Baby (original 1995; edition 2000)
by Howard Cruse
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060977132, Paperback)A truly eye-opening comic. The story is set in the South in the early '60s and deals with homophobia, racism and the gay subculture of that period. The art is absolutely beautiful; Cruse is a master of the cross-hatching technique, which gives a certain "texture" to his art work and brings his pages to life. Stuck Rubber Baby is easily the most important comic book since Art Spiegelman's Maus.

As Toland Polk, a citizen of the small southern town of Clayfield in the 1960s, fights for civil rights, he begins to realize that he has another, more personal, battle to wage--that of accepting that he is gay.
