    Mary Wings - Underground Comix Group (Various, 1970s). Before Howard Cruse and Gay Comix, before Larry Fuller and Gay Hearthrobs, there was Mary Wings. She wasn't the first person to put out Gay comix; they had come back in the 60s with The Man from A.U.N.T.I.E. But she was the first to push her books at comic book conventions, and sell thousands of copies. This lot contains first editions of Come Out Comix from 1974, and Dyke Shorts from 1978. After nearly 30 years, these have become some of the tougher to find Gay comix. Both books are very solid and would grade higher if it weren't for extra price tags on the covers. Back in the 70s, many "head" shops would mark the price up on the Undergrounds to make more money after buying copies directly from the artists. Definitely an important, overlooked creator in the history of Undergrounds.
