    Snatch Comics #1 First Print (Apex Novelties, 1968) Condition: Qualified NM. This is an extremely difficult to find first printing of one of Robert Crumb's most infamous comix. Snatch Comics was controversial from the word go. With a title guaranteed to offend, and an interior chock full of sex and debauchery, Crumb and Apex had a winner on their hands! These books were assembled by hand and cut by hand with a dull blade, which accounts for the rough and uneven edges. The colors on this copy are blazingly bright and beautiful. It's difficult to imagine a fresher copy. This book listed for $175 back in 1982 when Jay Kennedy published his Official Underground And Newave Comix Price Guide. Only 800 copies of Snatch Comics were printed in the first run, and not many of them survived...let alone in this high grade. Snatch this one while you can!
