    HOME GROWN FUNNIES by R. Crumb (14th printing).

    This was Kitchen Sink Press' best-selling underground comic book of all time, with sales of over 160,000 copies. The reason for its popularity was simple. Other than a secondary 3-page lead story featuring Mr. Snoid and Angelfood McSpade, the book consists almost entirely of the legendary "Whiteman Meets Bigfoot" story. Whiteman, an everyman caucasian, is initially kidnapped by the dark, large and furry Yeti, but he eventually falls in love with her and has no desire to return to civilization. Its length and upbeat message is not typical of the often-cyncial Robert Crumb. .

    Home Grown was first published in 1971 by Kitchen Sink. Newsprint guts. The edition offered here is the 14th printing (July 1986) while KSP was still in Wisconsin. Note four cover changes: a.) The retail price is $2.00; b.) A new Kitchen Sink Comix trademark is in the upper left corner; c.) Below the new trademark "Adults Only" has been added to the cover in red ink by a more legally-conscious publisher; and d.) An overline blurb has been added, boasting that 140,000 copies have been sold. NM/Mint. $9.00
