    Description

    Gothic Blimp Works #1 (East Village Other, 1969) Condition: VF. This ground-breaking Underground comic/newspaper was the product of New York's fabled alternative paper, the East Village Other. Copies are always hard to come by, but finding a first issue in this unbelievably fresh, unfolded condition is truly mind-blowing! Artists included cover artist Robert Crumb, Vaughn Bodé (who edited the first few issues, and provided the front cover logo), S. Clay Wilson, Spain Rodriguez, and more -- the creme de la creme of the Underground! Adult themes. Fogel's 2015 Underground Price & Grading Guide FN 6.0 value = $250; NM- 9.2 value = $500. From the Eric Sack Collection.
