    Description

    Snatch Comics #3 Don Donahue File Copy (Apex Novelties, 1969) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white pages. Here's one of the rare, hand-assembled copies of this notorious comic, the last in the short series of three printed by the original publisher, Don Donahue. In late 1972, the Print Mint took over production, moving the actual printing to a commercial printing plant; this copy is one of the last of the small-press editions. People were supplied with stacks of covers and interior pages and given a stapler, and they went at it by hand. The final step in the process was to stack the comics in a paper cutter and trim the edges. When the books reached the retailer, it was common practice to re-sticker the price to 75 cents or more. This copy was never trimmed, never stickered, and never circulated. Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide NM 9.4 value = $300. CGC census 12/06: 7 in 9.8, 1 higher. From the collection of Apex Novelties owner Don Donahue.
