Fantagraphics Books
Free sample

While many cartoonists in the late '60s and early '70s were "turning on, tuning in, and dropping out," Jim Osborne was cut from a much darker cloth, delving into the extreme underbelly of American popular culture with unsettling comics about murder, conspiracy, and demons, both figurative and literal. This book collects all of Osborne's stories and illustrations from formative publications like Yellow Dog, Bijou Funnies, and National Lampoon, many republished here for the first time in decades.
