------------hatrdcover, about 9.25w x 12.25h inches, a Near Fine copy, one corner is slightly bumped, a wee bit of light rubbing, no dustjacket as issued, 271 pages, b&w illustrations throughout, jeez what a vision he had, inspired by early MAD mags BW created characters that are incredibly unique, ---"Wolverton's work predates by decades many of the more acerbic comics of the 60s underground commix era, including those of R. Crumb, and is revered by many contemporary comics artists for his graphic lunacy and his matchless facility with pen and ink. His influence is evident not only in Crumb's now canonized comics, but also in contemporary graphic novels by Drew Friedman, Gary Panter, Charles Burns and Peter Bagge…Still, he is less known today than other masters of the genre, so this book—made up of the comics artist Glenn Bray's collection of Wolverton's rare original art, some of it previously unpublished—provides welcome evidence of his range"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
