Jesus is back in this collection of groundbreaking collection from Harvey Pekar's Our Cancer Year collaborator.Underground comics were known for their satirical assaults on beliefs held dear by middle America. None was more witty or biting than the very first underground comic ever publishedFrank Stack's The Adventures of Jesus. Stack's controversial strip first saw print in the Texas counterculture publications, The Charlatan and The Austin Iconoclastic, and the University of Texas humor magazine, The Texas Ranger. In 1964, Texas Ranger editor Gilbert Shelton (who would later go on to create the little known Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers) made 50 photocopies of about a dozen strips, stapled and collated the pages, designed a cover and distributed it to friends around campus.
Über den Autor: Texan teacher, editor, critic, and cartoonist Frank Stack?s The Adventures of Jesus (1962) was arguably the first underground comic book. Stack (b. 1937) was a professor of art at the University of Missouri for forty years, and has a BFA from the University of Texas and an MA from the University of Wyoming. He drew Harvey Pekar?s Our Cancer Year (1994) and edited Naked Cartoonists (2012). His work has been collected in several solo collections, most notably The New Adventures of Jesus (2007).
