REVIEW SCORE 6
1st Printing / September, 1971 / 28 pages / Half Ass Press
_
Greaser Comics #1 is an east-coast underground that's irreverent, deviant, violent and politically incorrect. Hmm, sounds like most of us. Key contributors George DiCaprio and R. Jaccoma give us fast cars driven by young punks with greasy hair, cuffed jeans and white t-shirts. And yes, the moiré patterns on that front cover art are actually there, and they are probably intentional.
