    ZAP No. 1 by R. Crumb (1967) (3rd printing).

    Published by Apex Novelties, this is the all Robert Crumb underground comic that started it all! It includes "Whiteman," "Ultra Super Modernistic Comics," the "Kitchen Kut-Outs" centerfold, "Mr. Natural Visits the City," "Just Us Kids!!" and the very first appearance of the eventually ubiquitous "Keep on Truckin'..." (We also have R. Crumb's hand-signed ZAP # 1 Cover Serigraph elsewhere in this web store.)

    The Zap #1 printing offered here is certainly not as scarce or valuable as the currently out of sight prices of earlier printings. A CGC 8.5 VF+ copy of the Charles Plymell first printing sold for $8,000 in 2003. A VG/Fine (CGC 5.0) copy was sold in 2002 by a New York dealer for $5,500 while a CGC 6.5 Fine condition first printing sold in 2001 for $4,000. Some dealers and collectors are already calling the first printing of Zap the Action #1 of undergrounds with no price ceiling going forward.

    While the Plymell (1st) and Donohue (2nd printing) are nearly impossible to find in any condition, and will cost a small fortune if you do, we have a few truly near mint/mint copies (you will not find better!) of the still quite scarce 3rd printing at a very affordable price of $125
