    Description

    Kids' Liberation Coloring Book nn (Last Gasp, 1971) Condition: FN. One of the very first publications by one of the major producers of Underground comix, Last Gasp, was this odd little item. It's in fact an Underground comic for children, as twisted as that sounds! The inside cover states that this book contains "stories, fairy tales, cartoons, flipbook, paper dolls, and a special book of switcheroo cartoons," and the whole thing is dedicated to battered children of the world. That's all well and fine, but we must warn you: the back cover by Trina is the paper doll page, and it's an illustration of a nude little boy and girl! It was in no way intended to titillate, but in today's ultra-politically correct atmosphere, this is bound to upset someone! Other artists involved were Bill Griffith, Larry Welz, Kim Deitch, Justin Green, Johnny Chambers, Sally Cruikshank, Julie Wood, and Bob Inwood. The "switcheroo" booklet is still attached to the inside back cover. Like all Undergrounds, this book is not listed in the Overstreet Price Guide.
