The complete Zap comix( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There was scarcely an underground comics world before Robert Crumb's classic solo first issue of Zap. By Zap #2, he had begun assembling a Seven Samurai of the best, the fiercest, and the most stylistically diversified cartoonists to come out of the countercultural kiln. All of them were extremists of one sort or another, from biker-gang member Rodriguez to Christian surfer Griffin, but somehow they produced a decades-long collaboration: a mind-blowing anthology of abstract hallucination, throat-slashing social satire, and shocking sexual excess, that made possible the ongoing wave of alternative cartoonists like Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, and Charles Burns. The Complete Zap Comix collects every issue of Zap - every cover and every story, and even the Zam mini comic jam among the Zap artists - in a five-volume, slipcased hardcover set. It will also include the 17th unpublished issue with work by Crumb, Moscoco, Wilson, Rodriguez, Shelton, Mavrides, and Williams. Plus, an introduction by founder R. Crumb and an oral history of Zap by Patrick Rosenkranz. Zap is the most historically and aesthetically important comics series ever published. Also included exclusively in this boxed set is a portfolio of Zap covers by the eight artists, replicated from high resolution scans and proofs, and specially printed for this edition on acid-free, 100% cotton fine-art paper utilizing archival pigment inks

The Fat Freddy's cat omnibus by Gilbert Shelton( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Often to be found sleeping on the unfortunate Fat Freddy's head, this big fat ginger tom has his own adventures at the bottom of many Freak Brothers pages. His constant battles with the never endng army of roaches out for world domination drive him to distraction, as does Fat Freddy's never-ending failure to feed him or empty his kitty litter box. As a result of this, his main hobbies seem to be shredding Freddy's water bed and any other items he can sink his claws into, and finding places to leave surprise poop packages for Freddy to discover. This cat has variously gone traveling to Mexico, saved the world from alien invasion, and worked as a government agent in Washington trying to save the world from the 'hee hee hee' drug. He has 3 nephews of unknown origin. He tends to regard the Freak Brothers with a fair bit of contempt, but despite the odd separation he always seems to hook back up with his inept roomies"--Page 4 of cover
