  This is a guide to underground comix 
  Only Some  "first-and-Only" printings are  listed in this  guide  =  when  the  comic  itself  says  it's  the 1st  printing. 
  We list those "first-and-only" printings cus  some folks assume that if it says 1st,  that there must be more.   Which  in  most  cases,  ain't  so.
90% of titles are first-and-only printings. 
(and NOT covered in this guide) 
Only about 200 titles were reprinted. 
If your book is not in our Guide, it's safe to assume there was only one printing.


(1) Remember to click on the thumbnails for info.
Do not trust the text descriptions, we don't.
(2) Price stickers don't mean shit. Ignore them.
If they haven't fallen off by now, Do Not try to remove them - you might rip your book. Hold the cover up to a bright light - try to read through the sticker for the actual cover price.
(3) Prices  listed are the cover  price, as printed (no stickers). We are NOT a price guide.
(4) We have added © copyright notices and scanner credits (ex: ZH/RU) to our cover scans. Please do not report to us that they are missing from your book.
(5) If your book is not in our Guide, it's safe to assume there was only one printing.
(6) see also  Notes on using this Guide.

Some  Comix say which printing they are. 
(see boring text list  1)
But  some are wrong or misleading 
(see boring  text list 2)
Many  reprints are simply unknown.

Why concentrate on reprints?
 (1) Because for some comix, the printing can be more important than condition.
      Newsstand comics are a delivery system for ads, so  have a one month shelf-life. (Most Comix were also printed only once.)
But Since  ComiX were marketed as a novelty item for head shops, some  were  reprinted for as long as they would sell. Early issues of Zap and Freak Brothers stayed 'in print'  over 30 years!
(can you trust a comic over 30?) 
With cover prices from .25 to $3.25 
Selling more copies than most newsstand comics. 
(2) Because we can. 
Text descriptions, of the differences between printings, Just Don't Cut It. It needs graphics,
like photos or scans. Which we can do better, online, than any paper guide.

Why just reprints? Why not a full Guide?
  Because full guides have been done, and better than we can do it. We highly recommend:
