Only Printing / 1969 / 16 pages / Apex Novelties and Kerry Clark
King Bee is a groundbreaking and innovative tabloid comic from Don Donahue's Apex Novelties and Kerry Clark, featuring some of S. Clay Wilson's most provocative work. The collages in this comic, which are uncredited in Kennedy's Price Guide, remind me a bit of Wilson's 1972 digest, Murder, so I would not be surprised if he also had a hand in creating the ones here. Full review coming soon.
Apex Novelties printed approximatley 1,000 copies of this tabloid. It has not been reprinted.
