    SNOID COMICS by R. Crumb. (4th printing).

    The cover is inspired by a Little Lulu comic in Robert's childhood collection (see the side-by-side comparison in The R. Crumb Coffee Table Art Book. Mr. Snoid is perhaps Crumb's nastiest and least redeeming character. The little imp does little to improve his image in stories here as a misogynist Bohemian artist; a foot fetishist latching on to and ripping off a black hooker; and as a pedestrian laughing at traffic victims. A bonus 4-page story features Jaf and Suzette, "Those Dharma Bums." And for those who like their underground comix cute, there is a guest appearance of the "adorable little Bearzie Wearzies."

    Perhaps most significantly, Snoid marked the first and only comic book appearance of one of Crumb's most beloved creations, "The Short History of America." (It's black & white in Snoid, but both a color poster R. Crumb's A Short History of America" and a R. Crumb ZAP Serigraph signed and numbered are available from this web store.) Like most KSP comix, it is printed on higher-grade white paper, not newsprint.

    First published in 1979 by Kitchen Sink Press, the edition offered here is the 4th and final printing (June 1998, as KSP neared its close). NM/Mint.
