In this goofy but still very much relevant satire (which even predicts, in passing, the subject becoming a reality TV star), the underground cartoonist faces off against the man many of us wish were just a cartoon.

Note: brief (verbal) rape "joke."

In February and March 1974, SF writer Philip K. Dick had a series of hallucinatory experiences which influenced the remainder of his personal life and literary career. Although he generally treated these as genuine spiritual revelations, on which he wrote a massive journal commentary he called the Exegesis, he did occasionally consider the possibilities that these visions were symptoms of schizophrenia or a temporal lobe epilepsy. Whatever they were, in 1981 Dick sat with interviewer Gregg Rickman to discuss them, and in the summer of 1986, R. Crumb illustrated some excerpts in Weirdo #17. 2⅔ pages out of 8.

From the cover of Mystic Funnies #1 (1997)



We can't talk about underground comix without mentioning its most well-known and influential creator, R. (Robert) Crumb. In 1968, his Zap Comix was the first underground title really to tap into the hippie/freak zeitgeist and achieve commercial success, paving the way for hundreds more titles by a variety of cartoonists. Although many of his colleagues and readers have rightly called him out for the unabashed misogyny, dehumanizing sexuality, and insensitively "ironic" use of racial caricature in his work, there's still much within Crumb's output worth reading. Among his wittiest stories are those starring the half-wise, half-huckster guru Mr. Natural and his long-suffering, neurotic student, Flakey Foont.

This is my very first post here, so please be gentle with me. I made an image using the characters from Girl Genius.



For greater legality, three pages from Mystic Funnies No. 2:



Despite all byte crunching, the images are still 335 KB in toto.

This appeared in something called US: THE PAPERBACK MAGAZINE# 3, from 1970. Edited by Richard Goldstein. It's an interesting experiment at a magazine in paperback format, some interesting articles and fiction aimed at a college counter-culture market. "Spread" was a portfolio of drawings from Robert Crumb's notebooks. Most of the sketches are of wrinkled unshaven beaten-down-by-life faces or women with thick legs and clunky shoes. But this little sequence stood out as Crumb had something to say. I don't know if he ever developed it into a poster, but it might have done as well as "Keep On Trucking."
