    Description

    Robert Crumb, Spain Rodriguez, Vaughn Bodé, and others The East Village Other Group of approximately 300 (EVO, 1966-1971). New York's East Village Other (EVO) was among the seminal counterculture newspapers of the 1960s. Its importance to the Underground Comix movement involves the extensive use of cartoons and strips by artists including Robert Crumb, Kim Deitch, Trina Robbins, Spain Rodriguez, Gilbert Shelton, Rory Hayes, Willy Murphy, Vaughn Bodé, and Art Spiegelman -- foreshadowing such self-contained Underground comic books as Zap Comix and the EVO-sponsored Gothic Blimp Works. This generous, unevenly preserved array includes some of Crumb's earliest pieces after he had quit the mainstream greeting-card industry. Very unusual to find such a hefty selection of issues in any condition. Overall Good to Very Good condition, taking into account the inevitable deterioration of pulpwood newsprint, particularly around the margins of the pages. From the Eric Sack Collection.
