Happy Birthday Robert Williams

Complete Zap Comix: Special Edition w/ Limited Edition Signed Prints by R. Crumb, Paul Mavrides, Gilbert Shelton, Robert Williams, S. Clay Wilson
Happy birthday to artist, cartoonist, and co-founder of Juxtapoz magazine, Robert Williams, a.k.a. Mr. Bitchin’! In the late 1960s, Robert joined the ranks at Zap Comix where he created the seminal Underground Comix anti-hero, Coochy Cooty. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is this Special Signed Edition of The Complete Zap Comix which includes a portfolio of five gyclée prints, scanned from original pages of Zap art by Robert Crumb, Paul Mavrides, Gilbert Shelton, Robert Williams, and S. Clay Wilson, each signed by the artist. The set collects every issue of Zap — every cover and every story, and even the Zam mini comic jam among the Zap artists — in a multi-volume, slipcased hardcover set. It will also include the 17th unpublished issue with work by Crumb, Moscoco, Wilson, Rodriguez, Shelton, Mavrides, and Williams. Plus, an introduction by founder R. Crumb and an oral history of Zap by Patrick Rosenkranz, and other exclusive bonus features and items. Zap is the most historically and aesthetically important comics series ever published. Limited to 250 copies.
