OUT OF STOCK!
OK, here's a slightly used copy of the super fabuous complete Zap box set that was published by Fantagraphics in 2014.
We've posted an in-the-round look at the box on Instagram, HERE.
The portfolio of giclée prints of the covers is a definite highlight; very nice.
This box had/has a retail price of $500.00
Here's the original Fanta hype-up:
"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 Comixcollects 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 It will also include the 17th unpublished issue with work by Crumb, Moscoco, Wilson, Rodriguez, Shelton, Mavrides, and Williams.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."

PLEASE NOTE: Our PayPal buttons do not currently incorporate an inventory function and so are not capable of automatically registering that an item has sold out; this must be done manually. Thus, it is within the realm of possibility that this item may appear as still available when it has actually sold out. We will make every effort to mark this as sold as soon after the fact as possible, but should it sell in the middle of the night, then the item won't be marked sold until morning. That said, should someone "buy" this item after it is no longer available, that person will receive a full refund within 24 hours (along with an apology for our lack of technical proficiency).
