Kinnelon, NJ: John Crawford, 1982-83. 39 single sheet comics, each offset printed on recto only, 4 zines or multi-sheet gatherings, each offset printed on rectos only and stapled once at the upper left hand corner, 3 of which have individual titles (Rock Critic Goes to Hell, Hollywood's Hardest Man, and To The Secretary Who Feels 'This Isn't My Day'), some of the preceding portmanteau sheets made with offset printed sections taped down onto a sheet, and a copy of the newsletter "The Baboon Report Number 2" (6 pp, offset printed on both rectos and versos, and stapled once at the upper left hand corner.). Some brief annotations throughout.
A significant accumulation of Crawford's work, mailed to a fanzine editor. Crawford's work and his Baboon Dooley comics appeared in hundreds of zines in the 1980's, making him certainly the most prolific and widely published punk comic artist of the time. As well as contributing the strips to zines, he also isssued them as standalone sheets, mailed through the mail to correspondents, as here. Scarce in this format.
Crawford's work was collected in a 1988 publication by Popular Reality.
Very good. Item #26516
