Bijou Funnies No. 4

Chicago, IL: The Bijou Publishing Empire, Inc./The Print Mint, 1970. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. The fourth number of this golden-age exemplar of underground comix features several works by Robert Crumb, including a Mr. Natural episode & "Projunior and Honeybunch" (outrageously scatological even for him); Daniel Clyne, Kim Deitch & Skip Williamson. This is the first printing, indicated by "Hey Kids! Adults Only!" in red lettering above title on front cover; & reference to The Bijou Publishing Empire/The Print Mint on inner front cover (subsequent printings have green lettering & are published by Kitchen Sink Press) as established by comix scholar authorities. An essential, classic underground comix collectible, in its rarest form. Adults only, indeed. In relatively fine condition, approximately equivalent to a 6.0 grade per Fogel's, CGC, etc.: Mild rubbing, spotting, creasing & discoloration of front & back covers; very small soiling-smudge marks at mid-right area of back cover lower edge; light crease along spine length. Interior fine except for browning of just-above-newspaper quality pages esp. margins & edges mildly effecting inner front & back covers; but pages not brittle & with barely any acidic scent. Fine. [Item #2216]
