REVIEW SCORE 8
It was actually pretty gutsy for the Crumb brothers to charge 15 cents for a copy of this comic fanzine in 1958, since a full-color Superman comic only cost a dime back then. But then, it cost the Crumbs almost 11 cents to print copies of FOO #2 and #3, so who can blame them for trying to eke out a 4-cent profit?
