Description

    Zap Comix #1 First Printing - Plymell Edition (Apex Novelties, 1967) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. Ah, the famous "Plymell" edition of Zap #1! What a historic book R. Crumb unwittingly launched on the world with this little masterpiece! Not only did he kickstart the entire Underground Comix genre, he basically gave birth to the modern-era independent comic book industry that remains thriving today. This sharp copy has an unusual "graduated" orange background within the top masthead; it probably wasn't intentionally done that way, just the result of press operator Don Donahue's inexperience at running Charlie Plymell's old printing press. Robert Crumb stories, cover, and art. Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide Supplement VF 8.0 value = $6,800. CGC census 10/13: 8 in 8.5, 25 higher.
