Larry Fuller (comics) and New 1st Army

Larry Fuller is an African-American underground comix writer, publisher, and promoter. Along with other such notables as Richard "Grass" Green, Guy Colwell, and Fuller's long-time partner and friend, Raye Horne, Fuller made sure that the voices of black comic book creators were heard in a time when their artistic efforts were largely ignored. Fuller mastered the art of delivering social commentary in humorous form.

Biography Early career

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Fuller's first foray into underground comix world was Ebon, a superhero parody he wrote and drew starring an African-American superhero, which Gary Arlington published in January 1970. (The back cover was a house ad for Arlington’s comic book shop, the San Francisco Comic Book Company, an epicenter of the underground comix movement). A bad fit with the largely white, adult audiences of underground comics, Ebon didn’t meet with much success. Shortly afterward, Fuller (in the guise of "Hairy" Larry Fuller) adapted H.P. Lovecraft's "The Ter'ble Old Man" for Last Gasp's 1971 comic Laugh in the Dark #1. Ful-Horne Productions

In 1975, Fuller teamed up with Raye Horne to form Ful-Horne Productions (later known as Fulhorne), putting out the sex-themed comics White Whore Funnies and the then ground-breaking Gay Heartthrobs (also known as Gay Heart Throbs). White Whore Funnies was one of the few underground comics to also be distributed in port shops. Fuller and Horne also published the anthology series The New Funny Book from 1975–1978, which featured contributions by artists such as Danny Bulanadi, Alex Niño - issue #2 cover, Nestor Redondo - issue #3 cover, Dan O'Neill, Ian Akin and numerous others.

Later forming Fuller Inkwell, Fuller went on to periodically publish other sex-themed titles, such as Adults Only! (1979–1987) and HandJob Library (1991).

A peripheral member of the underground scene, aside from a page in Laugh In The Dark, the only anthology titles in which Fuller participated were ones he published. Awards

In 2007, Fuller was the recipient of the Pioneer Award at the 2007 Glyph Comics Awards.

New 1st Army and Larry Fuller (comics)

New 1st Army (simplified Chinese: 新一军; traditional Chinese: 新一軍) was reputed as the most elite Chinese military unit of the Kuomintang. Nicknamed the "1st Army Under the Heaven" (simplified Chinese: 天下第一军; traditional Chinese: 天下第一軍) during the Chinese Civil War, it caused the most Japanese Army casualties during the Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945).

History

Formed from the Chinese Army in India, particularly the New 38th Division, the New 1st Army was among the top five nationalist crack units (the other four included the New 6th Army, the Reorganized 11th Division (army-sized, formerly known as the 18th Army and later reverted to its original designation), the Reorganized 74th Division (army sized, formerly known as the 74th Army), and the 5th Army).

After the New 38th Division under Sun Li-jen and New 22nd Division under Liao Yao-hsiang retreated to India from Burma in the first phase of the Burma Campaign, the two divisions obtained American equipment and training at Ramgarh, India.

The New 1st Army was formed in February 1943 at Ramgarh with the three divisions: the New 38th, the New 22nd and the New 30th. General Qiu Qingquan was appointed its commander, but was soon replaced by general Cheng Tung-kuo. Sun Li-jen served as the deputy commander but took over tactical command at the beginning of the second phase of the Burma Campaign.

During the Chinese Civil War, the New 1st Army was deployed in northeast China to fight against Communist Party of China military units under Lin Biao. It saw much success in the early battles. However, after some time, Sun Li-jen was dismissed as commander after offending important members of the KMT. Most officers above battalion level were also dismissed. This dealt a huge blow to the New 1st army and it began to suffer heavy losses. The N1A saw its last action in the effort to relieve the KMT controlled city of Jinzhou; the entire army was literally wiped out. Due to this army's group uneasy history with both the KMT and communist party of China, its successes are rarely talked about both on the China mainland and Taiwan.
