Last Gasp

Last Gasp has been a purveyor of fine sleaze and subversion since the heyday of the San Francisco comic underground. I cut my psychedelic teeth on "Weirdo," "Leather Nun," "Zippy," and the "Furry Freak Bros." They're all still here, now joined by "Trashman," "Love and Rockets," and "Eightball." Last Gasp is by far the most comprehensive source I have seen for underground art and comics. They have lots of super-small comic press titles like "American Primitive," "Avenue D," "Dirty Plotte," and "CPU Wars." They also carry books on avant garde art, post-modernism, and body modification (tattooing, piercing, etc). A pretty decent stock of zines rounds out their catalog offerings. Between Last Gasp, Bud Plant, and Flatland Distributors, you should be able to find most of the sidestream books, mags, and zines mentioned in this stack. The Last Gasp catalog is $1.00.
