And just like Crumb on the cover there, here is where your mind really gets BLOWN! This is where it starts revving up, like some kind of crazed acid trip (we have marked the "peak"  for you: it starts after the break in the list above with Kozmic Kapers). Include the color section in as well!

Yes folks, this is where Crumb REALLY cuts loose, and a few pages later is the beginning of his classic, thick-line style for which he became world famous. This is the volume containing the quintessential ZAP's # 0 & # 1.

This is the first volume of the series that you cannot live without!

At the moment of this writing, the Fantagraphics website says a reprint of this volume is AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER.
