What does Holla Forums think of underground comix?
What does Holla Forums think of underground comix?
First I hear of them.
There was a board that had a shit load of the storytimed, but I can't remember which one it was. I checked /storytime/, but don't see them there so it may have been somewhere else. Might not of survived the deletion.
That's because you aren't a babyboomer.
Robert Crumb is God.
He was going to tour Australia, but a fucking tabloid called him a pedophile, so he cancelled.
I also grok Vaughn Bode. He influenced a whole generation of graffiti artists, but the kids influenced by the kids who copied the kids who were inspired by the kids who ripped off the kids who copied his work have probably never heard of him by this point.
I hope someone dumps Mickey Mouse and the Air Pirates.
They're an interesting part of comic book history despite being overshadowed by the vulgarity of some of them. Plus, they're kind of a remnant of the kinda hippies that actually went out and did shit instead of posturing from the sidelines.
Anyone here feel like doing a story time for the uninitiated? I'm intrigued
I would, except I have zero of them on my computer. Someone posted a Fritz the Cat story a while ago, but the thread died pretty quickly.
Never been too big of a fan of Crumb, but that one documentary on him was fascinating.
I actually rented the documentary about him when I was in middle school. I thought I was getting some kind of comedy movie. In a way, I guess I was.
It's as if you were asking me, specifically.
That's the end of Air Pirate #1.
Air Pirate Funnies #2
And then Disney sued the artist involved out of existence.
Oh crap I wanted to see the next one.
I also have the comic produced by Dan O'Neill after the lawsuit that got him slapped with Contempt of Court.
I have this. It's really powerful. Especially against living thing.
Thanks a lot, user. Hopefully more people than just me will read it.
Daily reminder that nowadays, everyone is fine if people use their trademarks for porn hidden behind a Patreon paywall.
Does anyone have any Mr. Natural?
I remember that one storytime we had about the left wing guy fighting a fascist america from the 70's or something.
There's also this less known documentary.
Bode was awesome. I used to read my brother's Cobalt 60 comics when I was a kid.
I used to love reading my dad's freak brother comics.
Are imageboard comics the underground comics of Webcomics?
Man people love to cuck Mickey.
Moebius counts as underground?
I bought some comics from this local artist at comic con in July so I wonder if that would count as underground. Its in black and white.
I don't how much more underground it can get. Is there street grifters is dark back alleys with "underground" comics for sale hidden inside of their trench coats?
I really liked Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers comics. Despite being leftist, they are pretty self-aware. None of that "enlightenment through drugs" crap, protagonists get high and then fuck everything up. Then there is "Idiots Abroad" arc, which is EPIC, and "War of the Cockroaches" which is so relevant right now it hurts
Post more of these comics, please.
I will storytime some of them if you tell me how to convert PDF to CBR so I can just unzip and upload them here. I'm too lazy to copy and paste every page individually.
Holla Forums wouldn't know underground comix if they ran up and bit them on the collective bum.
Holla Forums's expertise is restricted to jacking off to kids' cartoons and whining about SJWs in comics they've never read.
no mention of capes
Step it up.
Nah it was just a local artist at a comic con. I've skimmed some of it. One of the stories he had seemed pretty funny.
You're welcome to leave.
I tried, but 4chan's Holla Forums is worse and 420chan's Holla Forums is dead.
Do you do anything but whine either?
If not then you're no better and nobody should care what you think.
I make threads which are deleted for "not storytiming". I make storytimes and get told "hi /tv/". This board is suffering from as deep a malaise as the comic and animation industries it comments on.
You can help solve the problem by drinking bleach.
The guy who posts "hey /tv/" is a troll. Just report and ignore him.
There's two, the serious one and an user that spammed the board yesterday trying to get the serious one banned.
many thanks for pics anons!
Moebius is about as "underground" as Stan & Jack… it's just his stuff was originally made and published in frogland.
I'm not sure "underground comics" really exist any more. They were produced to rebel against the code and defy the "kids only" aura that surrounded comics, neither of which really exists anymore. Some Small Press comics imitate the style of the Boomer-era underground comics, I have one at home called "Invasion of the Slimeslurps". But it's not going to upset any establishment figures, after all, Boomers ARE the establishment, now.
I guess if a European ran off some lolicon or antisemitic comics and distributed them anonymously, it would count as being "underground", as it could get them prison time.
Also, roughly contemporary with American underground comics, Japan came out with the similarly-inclined Garo and COM, but as there was no code over there, they were sold in mainstream shops (and, far from being rarities, you can find the bloody things everywhere)
