    Gothic Blimp Works #8 (East Village Other, 1969) Condition: VF-. This last issue of Gothic Blimp Works is also the hardest to find, due to low distribution. If you weren't in New York City back in 1969, chances are you didn't see this one. The cover is a famous "Mr. Natural" illustration by Robert Crumb, which has been used in a number of ways (like t-shirts); here it is in it's original presentation. The back cover reprints issue #2's cover art by Crumb, with an solicitation to subscribe; apparently no one did. Contributing artists include Spain Rodriguez, Vaughn Bode, Kim Deitch, and Harvey Kurtzman, who added to a jam called "Come the Revolution." This copy is flat and well-preserved.
