Description



Birthed in the days of "Hippies", LSD, psychedelic music and stiff Marijuana penalties, the underground comics genre has been around so long, that it is now venerable. Off-beat creators such as the infamous R. Crumb and Gilbert Shelton, shaped the genre with wicked satire and brazen presentations of sex, drugs and rock 'n roll, that no mainstream publisher would have dared to touch during the dark reign of the Comics Code Authority censorship. Crumb, Shelton and a host of other iconoclastic creators are represented in this 1968-2005 underground comic book collection of (55). These classic comics relate gritty tales of scandalous characters, including Mr. Natural, Fritz the Cat, The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers and many more.
