    Zap Comix #1 Plymell First Printing (Apex Novelties, 1967) CGC NM 9.4 Cream to off-white pages. Oh boy, Underground Comix fans, here we go again! The last 9.4 Plymell Zap #1 we offered (in our May, 2010 Signature Auction), shattered the previous sales record for this issue, which had been set (by Heritage, natch) only a year before. Obviously, this is one comic that just about everyone wants now, and as always, your friends at Heritage deliver the goods! This copy appears to have come from early in Charlie Plymell's print run, as the blue in the logo is lighter than on copies known to have come from later on in the run. In fact, there are a number of variants to this historic, low-run book (estimates range from 1,500 to 5,000 copies printed, but most experts feel the lower number is more accurate), so many that someone will need to devote a book to listing them all! Needless to say, this comic features Robert Crumb stories, cover, and art. Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide (2010 Supplement) NM- 9.2 value = $10,000. CGC census 7/10: 5 in 9.4, none higher.
