In the 1960s, Dan O'Neill, the creator of Odd Bodkins, assembled a band of rogue cartoonists, who together waged war against Disney, the ultimate enemy of their counterculture movement. Their Air Pirates Funnies featured Disney characters participating in obscene behaviour, provoking a mammoth lawsuit for copywright and trademark infringements that would rage for ten years, going all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. This rollicking saga features never-before-seen art from the Air Pirates archives.
