Zap Comix #4 (2nd Printing)
GD • Apex Novelties • 1969 • Second Printing
Not for nothin’ was this the first comic book declared legally obscene! For those with the stomach to read it, this issue is a landmark in the history of comics and raunch alike! In addition to Crumb’s notorious “Joe Blow” strip, this issue features works by Victor Moscoso, S. Clay Wilson, Spain Rodriguez, and Rick Griffin, all with titles that I should check with my boss before I print them on this website!
Note: We have determined that this particular issue comes from the second print run of Zap #4, due to the 50¢ cover price, lack of copyright statement on the inside front cover, and placement of the staples.
Art and story: Victor Moscoso, Robert Williams, Robert Crumb, S. Clay Wilson, Gilbert Shelton, Spain Rodriguez, and Rick Griffin
