Description

    Zap Comix #1 First Printing - Plymell Edition (Apex Novelties, 1968) CGC NM- 9.2 Cream to off-white pages. Robert Crumb's classic Underground comic was more than just a cultural milestone. This actually represented the first stirrings of the Independent Comics movement, an event that changed the comic book marketplace playing field forever. And yes, this is the first printing (with the "Printed by Charles Plymell" credit line on the back cover). The "11/67" date on the inside front covers (and CGC label) refers to the date Crumb did the artwork; this was actually published in February, 1968. Heritage auctioned a CGC 9.6 with off-white to white pages for $21,510 in 2011. Adult content. Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide Supplement NM- 9.2 value = $10,000. CGC census 6/13: 3 in 9.2, 13 higher.
