AVERAGE SCORE 7
Legendary underground lawyer Albert Morse launched The Funny Papers with copublisher Sherman Saiger and editor Lydia Saiger as a monthly, full-color tabloid with a diverse array of content. With Morse's stellar reputation, he was able to recruit some of the best talent from the underground comics golden era to contribute to the paper, including Robert Crumb, Vaughn Bode, Larry Todd, Trina Robbins and Jay Kinney, among others.

The third and final issues came out in April, 1975 and was slightly more adventurous than the previous two issues. Unfortunately, it was still ultimately disposable.
