    Description

    Zap Comix #1 First Printing - Plymell Edition (Apex Novelties, 1967) CGC VF 8.0 Cream to off-white pages. Here's the cornerstone of any serious collection of Underground Comix -- the iconic first printing of Zap #1 with the "Printed by Charles Plymell" credit on the back cover. The history of this comic book could fill a nice volume today; in fact, the surviving Zap artists have been hard at work on just such a book for the past couple of years. How many copies Don Donahue cranked out on Charlie Plymell's old press has been described as anywhere from 1,500 to 5,000, with Don learning the printing trade as he went (with a considerable amount of misprints tossed out). The supply of nice copies is beginning to dwindle, so if you've held out, our advice would be to act now. Robert Crumb stories, cover, and art. Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide Supplement VF 8.0 = $6,800. CGC census 10/13: 8 in 8.0, 33 higher.
