Underground comics or Comix as they are also known, began in the 1960s as a response to the Comics Code Authority, which began in the 1950s. Many of them were small press and self-published and dealt with issues and subjects not featured in mainstream comics including graphic violence, explicit depictions of sex, and drug use. Many underground comics have a parodic nature influenced by Mad magazine often parodying mainstream comics.
