REVIEW SCORE 7
Another Top Twenty Underground Covers award-winning front cover from Ed Watson graces the second issue of California Comics. This wraparound cover is particularly iconic of the hallucinogenic, erotic aspirations of the underground comic book era. The comic itself starts off with a juicy Lovetree story followed by a satisfying take on "The Sorcerer's Apprentice."

Bill Loudin and Bob Sidebottom begin an ambitious underground publishing history, titled "Comixography, The Comix Index" at the end of the book, with section A to C. Their laudable effort earns this issue (and #3) an extra star for "Historical Bonus."
