    Description

    Zap Comix #1 First Printing - Plymell Edition (Apex Novelties, 1967) CGC NM+ 9.6 Cream to Off-White pages. Here it is, Underground Comix/R. Crumb fans -- the Big Kahuna of the comix world! By now, most of you know the story of how Robert left his 9 to 5 job in Cleveland for San Francisco in 1967, at the height of the Hippie era, and how he turned a life-long fascination with comic books into something altogether different with this first "Head Shop" comic, which wound up being sold on the streets of Haight-Ashbury out of a baby buggy. Of the original print run of 5,000, few first editions have survived in such impeccable condition as this stellar example. Robert Crumb stories, cover, and art. Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide Supplement NM- 9.2 value = $10,000. CGC census 4/15: 6 in 9.6, none higher.
