Description

INTENDED FOR MATURE ADULTS

While a few small-circulation self-published satirical comic books had been printed prior to this, Zap became the model for the "comix" movement that snowballed after its release.

Premiering in early 1968 as a showcase for the work of Robert Crumb, Zap was unlike any comic book sensibility that had been seen before. After the success of the first issue, Crumb opened the pages of Zap to several other artists, including S. Clay Wilson, Robert Williams, "Spain" Rodriguez, Gilbert Shelton, and two artists with reputations as psychedelic poster designers, Victor Moscoso and Rick Griffin. This stable of artists, along with Crumb, remained mostly constant throughout the history of Zap.


_
Of course, any other underground outside of the Freak Brothers would've killed to have 85,000 copies in print in the mid to late '70s. Zap had established a loyal following, and the 8th issue had 70,000 copies printed by 1982. The quantity of subsequent issues is unknown, but after another long break in the series following the 8th issue, the 9th-15th issues probably had 10,000 to 40,000 copies each, making them somewhat harder to find than early issues.
