Russ Meyer, Ed Wood and Larry Flynt were Kennedy Center Honorees compared to Myron Fass, publisher of quickie exploitation magazines and classically awful comics. Fass is profiled at the vile and entertaining Bad Mags (for mature blue-state aesthetes only):

One-shot magazines were Myron’s favorites, on which he could use his “gift for mass psychology and bullshit.” The three biggest events that Myron cashed in on were the Beatles invasion, the Kennedy assassination––which he claimed to have made 4 million on––and the death of Elvis Presley.
More on his horror comics at The Dead Demons--including complete, uh, stories and a musty-smelling Cover Gallery!
