Description

    Bijou Funnies #1 First Printing (Print Mint, 1968) Condition: VF-. Featuring the work of Skip Williamson, Robert Crumb, Jay Lynch, Gilbert Shelton, and Jay Kinney, few Underground comix are as significant as this one. Scarce, and highly sought after, these almost never surface for sale. Originally cut and bound by hand, the printing irregularities and 1/4" overcover make this immediately recognizable as a true first printing - however the hand-crafted nature of this comic has caused major problems for keeping copies in high-grade condition. Generally the parts of the front and back cover that overhang the interior got easily frayed and torn, which means that finding a copy in VF or better condition is nearly impossible. Since it was published so early in the Underground Comix movement, this book was generally treated more cavalierly than more mainstream comics. Even if the book had been treated gingerly, natural pressing of the covers against the interior would almost always have formed a distinct crease with friction wear. This copy has no tears or fraying, and the overhang creasing is extremely minor; less than we've ever seen before. An extremely rare comic, this is undoubtedly among the nicest copies in existence.
