    Description

    Zap Comix #1 First Printing - Plymell Edition (Apex Novelties, 1967) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. This book is to Undergrounds what Action Comics #1 is to superhero comics! This book is referred to as a "Plymell" edition due to the printer's name being printed on the back page. Printing numbers vary depending on who is telling the story, but suffice to say no more than 5,000 copies were completed. The true number is likely closer to 1,500. The issues were printed and folded by hand, and then sold out of a baby carriage on the streets of Berkeley and San Francisco, so finding copies this nice can be quite a challenge! With sales records being broken on a regular basis for this book, it's a safe bet to say this one has real potential. Jerry Weist listed the first printing of Zap #1 in his 2000 Comic Art Price Guide as having a value between $750 (FN) and $1,500 (NM).
