    Famous Cartoonist Button 25

    Jay Kinny. Kinney created the early fanzine Nope which connected him to fellow underground cartoonists Jay Lynch and Skip Williamson and an appearance in the first Bijou Funnies. He later created or co-created such undergrounds as Young Lust, Anarchy and Cover-Up Lowdown. Kinney left the comic book field and founded the spiritual magazine Gnosis, which may explain why his head is in the clouds in this prescient self-portrait.


    About the Buttons:

    Pinback Jack issued this "Famous Cartoonist Series" of self-portrait buttons back in 1975. All of the participating cartoonists were alive and created self-portraits specifically for this button set. With very few exceptions, the images have not appeared elsewhere in print. The buttons were distributed by Krupp Comic Works and Phil Seuling. This set was originally announced as 52 buttons, and the alphabetical numbering reflects that. However, two artists (Neal Adams and Rick Meyerowitz) turned in their self-portraits late, after the first 52 had already been designed. They were included in the set, but numbered 53 and 54 respectively, out of alphabetical sequence. Steve Krupp's Curio Shoppe is now the exclusive source of the remaining limited inventory.

    All the color buttons in this set are metal with clear celluloid covers, are 2.25 inches in diameter, and have "safety" pinbacks. This button is listed for sale as an individual, but we do offer the complete set as well.
