    God Nose #1 (Jack Jackson, 1964) Condition: VG/FN. Here it is, Underground Comix fans and collectors -- the "Holy Grail" of all UGs, and the very first book published in this notorious "adults only" category! It's a super-rare "Purple Cover" copy of the classic Jack Jackson (or "Jaxon", as he was called throughout his Underground career) comic that kicked off an entire generation of "anything goes" funnybooks across American college campuses. The momentum from this book gave birth to Robert Crumb's Zap Comix in 1968, and Crumb and all his Zap buddies owe a lot to this pioneering effort. Jerry Weist, in his 2000 Comic Art Price Guide, priced this book between $350 and $1,500; we feel this to be a very conservative value for such an important and scarce item. This copy has a few small stains and light discoloration on the cover, but it remains a tight, flat copy. No major collection of Undergrounds can be considered complete without one!
