Limited Edition Of The Complete Zap Comix Will Include 17th Unpublished Issue

From Fantagraphic Books comes The Complete Zap Comix collection, which compiles every cover and every story in Robert Crumb's underground comics world. The multi-volume, slipcased hardcover set will also include the 17th unpublished issue with work by Crumb, Moscoco, Wilson, Rodriguez, Shelton, Mavrides, and Williams. Plus, an introduction by Crumb and an oral history of Zap by Patrick Rosenkranz, and other exclusive bonus features and items. This special signed edition will include everything in the regular edition, but will also contain a portfolio of five giclée prints, scanned from original pages of Zap art.


For those of you who don't know, there wasn't much of an underground comics world before Robert Crumb published the first issue of Zap by himself. However, by the second issue Crumb assembled a team of the best, stylistically diversified cartoonists. From Rodriguez to Griffin, the group produced a mind-blowing anthology of abstract hallucination, throat-slashing social satire, and shocking sexual excess that paved the way for alternative cartoonists such as Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, and Charles Burns. This is an excellent opportunity for the comics collector. Zap Comix have a unique look, and a memorable cast of characters. Some characters you might remember include, Angelfood McSpade, Mr. Goodbar, and Wonder Wart-Hog. The exclusive limited edition is shipping now, so don't miss out!
