DescriptionGothic Blimp Works #8 (East Village Other, 1969) Condition: NM. For a few months in 1969, this wild little tabloid comic book was found in certain "hip" venues in New York City (and practically nowhere else, other than a few that made it to the West Coast) featuring fantastic funnies by Robert Crumb, Spain Rodriguez, Kim Deitch, and others. An outgrowth of the East Village Other, NY's alternative newspaper, this all-comix experiment lasted a scant eight issues, this one being the last. Considered extremely rare in high grade today, this well-preserved copy was stored flat, and appears to have never had more than a few thumb-throughs. Incredible! Jerry Weist's 2000 Comic Art Price Guide gives this issue a NM value of $150. We say pay that amount and don't ask questions if you are lucky enough to find one! This could be the best copy of #8 in existence.
