The second issue of Cozmic Comics includes more British artists than the first, though some of those contributions are not credited in the book, so I don't know who they are. It's still overwhelmingly reprinted material from American comic books, starting with the Robert Crumb cover. But unlike the first issue, #2 introduces several more American artists to its readers, including Jim Osborne, Tim Boxell, Yossarian, Jay Kiney, S. Clay Wilson and Michael Kaluta.

Highlights include Yossarian's stinky two-pager about fart deodorant, Jay Kinney's surprising straightforward (and corny) romance comic, and a couple Vietnam military tales by Scott Judge and Greg Irons, the latter being "Last Rights," the brilliant 18-page epic reprinted from Deviant Slice Funnies #1. The first half of the story is presented here as part one of a two-parter to be continued in the next issue.
