1st-2nd Printing / July, 1969 / 28 pages / The Print Mint
This ethereal, trippy comic is mostly by the super-trippy John Thompson, but Crumb, Vaughn Bodé, Spain, Kim Deitch, Rick Griffin, Joel Beck and others also contribute 1 or 2 panels of art or captions. There is an awesome full-page illustration by Thompson on page 22 that was originally a Print Mint poster. Full review coming soon.
There are two printings of this comic book, both by The Print Mint. The printings (5,000 copies each) are considered to be indistinguishable from one another.


John Thompson - 1-28
