Key Facts

100-page, black and white, independently published comic book written and illustrated by Mike Diana then distributed to approximately 300 subscribers

Diana has the distinction of being the first person in the United States to be convicted of 'artistic obscenity' for the graphic content of the Boiled Angel series which included extreme violence, sexual assault and murder of men, women and children

Diana was fined $3,000, ordered to stay away from minors and given three years probation with one of the conditions being to cease creating art

In addition to police viewing Diana's work as illegal, they also supposedly identified the creator as a suspect in the 1990 Gainseville Ripper slayings, of which he was cleared

A documentary about the case titled 'Boiled Angels: The Trial of Mike Diana' was released in 2018
