Friday Fun is HERE This Summer!

Whenever possible, I try to run at least one ongoing weekly feature.

This summer it'll be Friday Fun featuring Big Apple Comix!
It was an underground comic anthology produced in 1975 featuring an incredible range of NYC-based comics talent (including many DC and Marvel contributors, all paying tribute to the city "so nice, they named it twice!"
The book was sold in head shops, porn shops, and other off-the-beaten track venues in NYC, SF, and other cities where there was a major counter-cultural presence. 
(The first comic book shops were just starting up, and some didn't want to carry "adult" material.)
As Denny O'Neil explains...

...Flo, BTW, was Stan Lee's right-hand woman at Marvel during the Silver Age of Comics, and she had both the publishing experience and the contacts to put together this one-of-a-kind project!
The best part is...none of the material in this 40+ year old book has ever been reprinted, so, for a lot of you, it'll be a look at work by some of your favorites that you've never seen before!
For the record, we ran one of the stories several years ago. You can see it HERE.
Be here next Friday for...FUN!

  1. Looks like fun. I have this one somewhere in a box, but I'd have a difficult time laying hands on it.
