From the back cover:
Comix: The Underground Revolution traces the successes of this golden age of counter culture, from the early days of Zap Comix in 1967 through to its ultimate decline as the free love world of hippie culture gave way to punk and disco.
- Features all the leading lights of the era from Robert Crumb and Gilbert Shelton to Bill Griffith, Vaughn Bode, Spain Rodriguez, Art Spiegelman, Hunt Emerson, Denis Kitchen and Harvey Pekar
- Includes a chapter on the new breed of comix illustrators - men such as Chris Ware and Dan Clowes - who keep the alternative scene alive into the 21st century
- Superbly illustrated with more than 300 color images - many of them scarce and unseen for more than 30 years!
- Includes a comprehensive directory of more than 1500 US and UK comix
New as published but has a remainder mark on edge and a long, lighter crease front cover.
