REVIEW SCORE 9
Cover article by Lorraine Glennby on the overlapping histories and inevitable futures of art, science, religion, philosophy, mythology and UFOs. Letter from Kim Deitch rants about legalizing marijuana. Feature article "Politics of Love" by Tuli Kupferberg examines the state of oppression in the U.S. and advocates a new political strategy focused on love. Walter Bowart writes about the fictional Uncle Charlie Jones, a non-conformist everyman trying to make sense of a world gone mad. Kim Deitch contributes the sixth and final episode of "Sunshine Girl, A Battle of Powers."

Great war protest photo montage in the center spread by Bowart, with a poetic caption by Allan Katzman. Jennifer Allen is featured as this issue's Slum Goddess. Joe Brainard illustrates a Frank Lima cartoon. No less than three new "Be-Ins" are announced in letters and columns, from Buffalo to Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Wheel and Deal pages are rife with ads from men seeking women for all matter of parties, film roles, enlightenment and sex.

HISTORICAL FOOTNOTES:

It is unknown how many copies of this newspaper were printed. I estimate EVO's distribution to be around 40,000 copies in 1967. Not many copies have survived intact.
