    Snatch Comics #1 -- First Printing (Apex Novelties, 1968) CGC Qualified NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. This is the extremely difficult-to-find first printing of one of Robert Crumb's most infamous comix, and undoubtedly one of the most significant Underground comic books ever published. 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 uneven page edges. The colors on this copy are blazingly bright and beautiful, and it is the sole sister copy to the uncertified one that realized over $2,000 in our last Signature Auction. Only 800 copies of Snatch Comics were printed in the first run, and not very many of them survived. Snatch it up! Overstreet does not currently list Underground comic values, but that does not make them any less desirable.
