Another spider horror

Tube girls gone wild
A dark inspiration

A cover from a bande dessinée adulte series called Luciféra, about which I know very little, except that it appears to have run from 1972 to 1980 and was published by a company called Elvifrance to which French-language Wikipedia attributes “une réputation sulfureuse.” I wonder why.

I run the illustration here not so much because it’s Erotic Mad Science per se, but because it’s a rather fine example that the initiation ritual that Cleo Mount went through in Study Abroad drew on something that’s captured many other imaginations.
