- Full Description
Second of a three-volume series reprinting his best comics and chronicling his life in a series of prose chapters. Features his two solo comics, 2 and 22, strips from Cocaine Comix, Knockabout, Weird Smut, and all his stories from Zap Comix #6-11. Strips in MANY obscure mags, as well as many never published privately commissioned watercolors and paintings.
Some of the oddball mags presenting Wilson pieces here include Jump Start, Mondo Montana, Deadbeat, Too Fun Too Huge, Boiled Owl, and Maggot-Zine.
As the Age of Aquarius morphed into Discomania and Reaganomics, pioneering underground cartoonist S. Clay Wilson discovered a new generation of punks and misfits in America and abroad who appreciated his point of view. He found new outlets for his artwork in outré galleries and fringe publications, and continued to contribute to the surviving remnants of the underground, including the never-say-die classic anthology, Zap Comix.
He made two tours of Europe, collaborated with William Burroughs and Ken Kesey, appeared on MTV, and had several highly acclaimed exhibitions in Seattle, Los Angeles, and New York. The Checkered Demon became ascendant among his creations --the prolific headliner of a series of comic titles that followed his f**king and fighting adventures around the earth and across the galaxies.
