    Description

    Foo #1 Original Edition (Animal Town Comics, 1958) Condition: VG+. A copy of the historic first published comic book by Robert Crumb, produced by Robert and his brother Charles by using the copy machine at their dad's office. Both Crumb brothers were heavily influenced by EC comics at the time, as seen by this issue's "Tales From the Crypt" style cover. Charles was the main driving force behind this book; when the brothers had trouble selling what they had printed up, Charles began losing interest, and Robert took up the slack; the rest, as they say, is history. A rare find! Not listed in Fogel's or Overstreet.
