1st Printing / July, 1970 / 28 pages / Rip Off Press
Jesus Meets the Armed Services is a terrific lampoon of America's military recruitment and induction traditions. It also introduces one of my favorite underground characters, Dr. Feelgood. Full review coming soon.
There are three printings of this comic book, all by Rip Off Press and all with 50-cent cover prices. It is currently unknown how many copies were produced for any of the printings. The 1st printing is distinguished by the barber chair on the front cover, which is colored yellow on the upper right corner. In the other two printings, the barber chair is solid red. The 2nd printing has an ad on page 27 drawn by Gilbert Shelton. In the 3rd printing, the Shelton drawing on page 27 is replaced by nine comic book cover reproductions.
