Description

    Lenny of Laredo #1 First Printing File Copy (Sunbury Productions, 1965) Condition: NM-. Joel Beck's funny take off on Lawrence of Arabia features the story of Beat comic Lenny Bruce. Beck was one of the first generation of cartoonists in the sixties' Underground movement, which began in college newspapers and humor magazines. Lenny of Laredo is considered one of the "grandfather" Undergrounds, along with Jack Jackson's God Nose and Foolbert Sturgeon's Adventures of Jesus, all of which predated Robert Crumb's Zap Comics #1. This incredibly fresh copy comes to us courtesy of Beck's original publisher, who has carefully guarded this treasure for all these years, until finally consenting to allow its sale through Heritage. Underground fans and collectors, grab this chance now -- this one belongs in the vault! Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide NM 9.4 value = $5,000.
