A self-described 'graphic agoraphobe,' Wilson draws manically dense scenes of lurid mayhem that rank among the seminal works of underground, counterculture American art. It's all here, from the classic chronicles of the Checkered Demon to salacious stories about the pirates, prostitutes, and poets that inhabit Wilson's divinely depraved world.

  • The definitive collection of the art of legendary Zap comic artist S. Clay Wilson.
  • Features 200 full-color images, including new work and previously unpublished prints commissioned for private collections.
  • Introduction by R. Crumb touts Wilson's role as one of the originators of underground comix.

  • 'Wilson was the strongest, most original artist of my generation that I had yet met. . . . There was something very familiar about the drawings, yet something entirely new, never before seen! It looked like folk art, like old-time tattoos, like some high school hotrodder's notebook drawings. They were rough, crazy, coarse, deeply American.' ófrom R. Crumb's introduction
