Description

    Zap Comix #1 Plymell Edition (Apex Novelties, 1967) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. This very attractive first-printing copy of Robert Crumb's historic first comic book comes to us, like the one just listed, from Underground cartoonist Jay Lynch. Jay published Bijou Funnies out of Chicago about a year after Crumb did this first Zap, and Crumb traveled from California to contribute art to the first (and every subsequent issue) of Bijou. Unlike the other copy from Jay's collection listed in this auction, this one is the better-known darker blue cover version. With Heritage's recent record-breaking sale price on a NM- 9.2 copy ($13,145, in our May, 2009 sale), this is one book worth keeping your eye on! Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide FN 6.0 value = $4,800; NM 9.4 value = $8,000. CGC census 1/10: 4 in 8.5, 8 higher. From the Jay Lynch Collection.
