GARY ARLINGTON (CONCEIVED BY) / SAN FRANCISCO COMIC BOOK COMPANY
Skull Comics No. 1
San Francisco, CA: San Francisco Comic Book Company / Rip Off Press, 1970. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Paperback. Illustrated by Irons, Sheridan, Jaxon, Schrier, and Hayes. B&W Illustrations; This comic book is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some beginning rubbing and bumping. There is some light toning to the rear cover. The text pages are clean and bright, but have some generalized light toning due to the acid content of the paper. "Though horror and violence had already surfaced in some undergrounds (e. G, Bogeyman) , nothing compared to Skull Comix #1, which featured the decapitation of a naked woman and zombies on peyote, and those were mere harbingers of what was to come. Skull explored all manner of the horror genre, from interpreting the classic writings of Edgar Allan Poe to modern elucidations and hallucinations. Skull didn't venture quite so extensively as its spiritual compatriot Slow Death, so it might not be considered as broadly entertaining, but it mined the traditional horror genre unlike any other anthology in the underground. The macabre tales of H. P. Lovecraft were prominently featured in the fourth and fifth issues of the series. The series finale in issue #6 featured a gruesome, marvelous full-length epic of horror by Tom Veitch, illustrated in two parts by Greg Irons and Richard Corben.". Very Good+ .

Roy Rogers Comics Vol. 1 No. 16
New York: Dell Publishing Co, 1950. Comic. This is a trade sized comic with illustrated covers and a stapled spine. The comic is in Good+ to Near Very Good- condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The spine joints, edges and corners of the book covers have some generalized rubbing, creasing and wear, along with a couple of small chips missing. The text pages are generally clean, but there is noticeable toning to the edges. "Rogers was an idol for many children through his films and television shows. Most of his postwar films were in Trucolor during an era when almost all other B westerns were black and white. Some of his movies would segue into animal adventures, in which Rogers's horse, Trigger, would go off on his own for a while with the camera following him. With money from Rogers's films and from his public appearances going to Republic Pictures, Rogers brought a clause into a 1940 contract with the studio where he would have the right to his likeness, voice, and name for merchandising. There were Roy Rogers action figures, cowboy adventure novels, and playsets, as well as a comic strip, a long-lived Dell Comics comic book series (Roy Rogers Comics) written by Gaylord Du Bois, and a variety of marketing successes. Rogers was second only to Walt Disney in the number of items featuring his name.". Good+ .

 ZAP COMIX, ROBERT CRUMB, Zap Comix No. 5
ZAP COMIX, ROBERT CRUMB
Zap Comix No. 5
Berkeley, CA: Apex Novelties, 1970. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Comic. Illustrated by Robert Crumb. B&W Illustrations; This comic book is in Very Good condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some light bumping, rubbing and wear. The text pages are clean and bright, but have some light generalized toning. The lower staple is loose. "Zap Comix is an underground comix series which was originally part of the youth counterculture of the late 1960s. While a few small-circulation self-published satirical comic books had been printed prior to this, Zap became the model for the "comix" movement that snowballed after its release. The title itself published 17 issues over a period of 46 years. Premiering in early 1968 as a showcase for the work of Robert Crumb, Zap was unlike any comic book sensibility that had been seen before. After the success of the first issue, Crumb opened the pages of Zap to several other artists, including S. Clay Wilson, Robert Williams, "Spain" Rodriguez, Gilbert Shelton, and two artists with reputations as psychedelic poster designers, Victor Moscoso and Rick Griffin. This stable of artists, along with Crumb, remained mostly constant throughout the history of Zap. ". Very Good .
