The Complete Zap Comix Boxed Set [PRE-ORDER]

This is the project that has been keeping Gary Groth busy for the last few years.  It's a five volume set that Fantagraphics has priced at $500.00 We're offering a pre-order only special price of $375.00.  (In other words: we will raise the price when the book is released). Just for the record, Amazon's pre-order price is, as of this writing, $438.85*.

Fanta sez:  "There scarcely was an underground comics world before Robert Crumb's classic solo first issue of Zap in 1968. By Zap#2, he had begun assembling a Seven Samurai of the best, the fiercest, and the most stylistically diversified cartoonists to come out of the countercultural kiln. All of them were extremists of one sort or another, from biker-gang member Rodriguez to Christian surfer Griffin, but somehow they produced a decades-long collaboration: a mind-blowing anthology of abstract hallucination, throat-slashing social satire, and shocking sexual excess, that made possible the ongoing wave of alternative cartoonists like Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, and Charles Burns. The Complete Zap Comix collects every issue of Zap — every cover and every story, and even the Zam mini comic jam among the Zap artists — in a multi-volume, slipcased hardcover set. It will also include the 17th unpublished issue with work by Crumb, Moscoco, Wilson, Rodriguez, Shelton, Mavrides, and Williams. Plus, an introduction by founder R. Crumb and an oral history of Zap by Patrick Rosenkranz, and other exclusive bonus features and items TBA."

Five-volume hardcover boxed set; Limited, single-printing edition

Ships in: December 2014 (subject to change - while we can guarantee to ship this item within one business day of our receiving it, and we are operating under the assumption that we will receive it in time to get it to customers before Christmas,  we cannot guarantee that this will turn out to be the case.)

*While we are aware of Amazon's "pre-order price guarantee", we suspect that we fly so far below the radar that they our price won't register on their screens, and so won't cause their price to automatically lower to match ours.  We could be wrong of course, but even then:  wouldn't you rather buy this from Copacetic than for a penny less from Amazon?
