Rip Off Comix

    (Rip Off, 1978-1989)
™ and © Rip Off Press and various artists, writers, or producers

In a classic salute to everything that is ‘70s, Rip Off Comix collects several stories—humorous, entertaining and just plain out there—from some of the most well known creators of underground comics. Dave Sheridan, Bill Griffith and Gilbert Shelton are just a few of the artists lending their characters and unique style of storytelling to this black and white compilation.

What make the stories in this title of particular interest to unsuspecting readers are not the striking similarities they share with other mainstream titles, but rather the dated jokes and subject matter that creep into each story’s narrative. Abundant references to Nixon, the oil crisis and such cultural phenomena as New Wave, Pepsi Cola and the cult classic Alien make for an open window to a time gone but not forgotten.
