    SNARF No. 4 (1st printing, 1973).

    The fourth issue of this long-running Kitchen Sink Press anthology ("America's Best Comic") pushed the limits of unwritten "cover rules" by showing a bare breast and a spent dick. Since the cover was drawn in a "cute" stytle by Dutch underground artist Evert Geradts, no one seemed to mind. Geradts also created the dramatic lead story, "Marion McKay's All-Animal Orchestra." The inside front cover "Shadow" art is by Pete Poplaski. Editor/publisher Denis Kitchen contributes "The Underground Cartoonist," "Fred the Louse" and three Bugle strips. Joel Beck ("Hollywood Psychiatrist"), Mark Morrison ("Pagfeek"), Pete Loft ("The Truth"), Howard Cruse (early "Barefootz" strips), Tim (Grisly) Boxell ("Paper Sheets") and Richard "Grass" Green ("The Origin of Wildman") round out the insides. Peter Manesis contributes a great back cover: a large head of Pinochio with Jiminy Cricket's feet sticking out of the puppet's grinning mouth.

    The inside back cover features an ad drawn by R. Crumb to promote his Ordinary Record 78 RPM LP Album, 10,000 copies were published. NOTE: Significant changes were made to the second printing of Snarf #4 (also offered in this web store). What we are offering here is the first printing (March 1973) with a cover price of 50 cents.. NM/Mint. $10.
