  • R.I.P. Martin Barker

    "The academic author who was the lone defender of Video Nasties and horror comics during the cultural dark ages of the 1980s.

    Professor Martin Barker, who died on September 8th 2022, is one of those scholars known to different groups for different things. Some will remember him for his pioneering work in the theory of cultural racism, which was the focus of much of his work in the 1970s. Others – and perhaps more significant for Reprobate readers – was his impressive work covering the world of British comic books, censorship and Video Nasties that began in the 1980s."
