Tales From the Ozone #1 (Russ Gibb Productions, 1969) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Cream to off-white pages. Here's an Underground comic which made it to almost every UG collector's want list for years. Issued by a rock-concert promoter in Detroit (with a great ad on the back cover featuring the Who, Jethro Tull, the Velvet Underground, the Stooges, and others), it was never widely distributed outside of the Michigan area. Factor in some great art by Robert Crumb, Vaughn Bode, Gilbert Shelton, and more, and you have yourself one hot little "comix" book here! Back in 1982, Jay Kennedy's Official Underground Price Guide gave it a NM value of $185, higher than the then-going rate for a Plymell Zap #1! Jerry Weist, in the 2000 edition of his Comic Art Price Guide, gives it a NM value of $350, but notes that high-grade copies are uncommon. A check with CGC reveals only three copies certified to date, with none graded higher than this example.
