From Boing Boing:


I try not to let myself become overly attached to material things, but this Jimbo book by Gary Panter is something I've treasured for 30 years. I bought it in 1982 from a headshop in Boulder, Colorado, called the Pipefitter. I hadn't heard of Gary Panter before seeing the book. I was attracted to its large-format (14.5 inches x 11 inches) and especially the cardboard outer cover with the small black and red label glued onto it. (See more photos of the book here on my Flickr set).


Jimbo was published by Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly's (who also published RAW, a seminal underground comics anthology that showcased the early work of a great many talented artists, including Panter). At the time I thought $3 was a lot of money for a comic book!... (continue reading; also leads to an interview on WFMU)
