REVIEW SCORE 9
In 1973, El Perfecto Comics was organized by Aline Kominsky and published by The Print Mint to raise funds for the Timothy Leary Defense Fund. Leary had been jailed on drug possession charges and faced 25 years in prison (eventually, he squealed on his dealers and got off). The comic features 31 underground artists contributing mostly one-pagers about drug experiences (primarily LSD). The majority of the stories convey a negative experience, but usually with a ripe sense of humor (unlike some other anti-drug comics). The best of all the stories may be Sharon Rudahl's "Acid Revolution."
