Underground Comix August 2017

Underground Comix
August, 2017

Earlier this week I was fortunate to find a quiet little out-of-the-way used book and record store that was selling these for $3.00 each (the Freak Bros. comic was $4.00).

They include: 

Inner City Romance Comix No. 2 (1972) 
The Collected Adventures of the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers (1971)
Subvert Comics No. 2 (1972)
Girl Fight Comics (1972) 
Skull Comics No. 3 (1971)
Young Lust No. 1 (1971)
Young Lust No. 5 (1977)
Skull Comics No. 6 (1972)
Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary (1972)

Needless to say, there are some real gems here. In the coming weeks I will be posting selected scans from the contents of some of these books here at the PorPor Blog...........

Below is a 300 dpi scan of the wraparound cover for Inner City Romance Comix No. 2, by Guy Colwell. Despite the comparatively crude printing processes used for comix in the early 70s, it's pretty impressive to see what could be done by the underground artists with the limited technologies at their disposal.
