Underground comics icon, S. Clay Wilson, has died

Originally published at: Underground comics icon, S. Clay Wilson, has died | Boing Boing


i discovered him when i discovered my dad’s secret collection of underground comix in a rotten old box hidden in the basement. MY GOD IT WAS SHOCKING.

One worry i have about kids these days is that there porn - as dirty and as cancerous as the internet is- will never have the delicious seedy awfulness that S. Clay Wilson had in Spades.

RIP you filthy pirate, you made a dirty man of me.


Another relic of the counter culture sinks beneath the waves~

It’s a shame Fantagraphics has absurdly overpriced their boxed set of the complete ZAP Comix. Hopefully a different (more reasonably priced) edition of the complete set will emerge some day.

Addendum: He now joins

Spain Rodriguez & Rick Griffin among the Zap deceased.
