GUTTER HUNTER issue 1

FIRST PRESSING

The first printing sold out in a just 5 days, while these copies in stock now at FAB Press were still en route all the way from Canada. Therefore we are currently selling the only remaining first pressing copies available!

Here's the details: This new comic-sized, annually-published publication is a celebration of the weirdest, most memorable, rarest, and altogether most eyebrow-raising independent comics of all time. Small press, '90s alternative, '80s black & white explosion, '70s and '60s undergrounds – all of the most amazing non-corporate sequential art ever produced is on the table, and being rifled through.

Filled with reviews, comics, essays, interviews and while illustrated and hand-lettered, Gutter Hunter retains the aesthetic of the work it focuses on. Many of these are comics made by actual cults, outsiders, outlaws, and oddballs, and most of the stories here have NEVER BEEN TOLD BEFORE in any magazine.

Robin Bougie has, for 25 years, been peering his investigative eye towards this very topic, but where it resides in the history of cult movies. In the book and magazine series of Cinema Sewer he's been uncovering and unearthing the behind-the-scenes dirt on the making of cult films, tracking down the people that made these cinematic marvels, and getting them to tell their stories. Now he's turning that same eye, that very same writing style and focusing it on a road even less travelled: on the disrespected, underappreciated, and misunderstood history of indie comix.

Gutterhunter #1 is 100 pages, perfect bound on black and white newsprint paper (the paper that feels SO RIGHT for the history of this medium) with each page lovingly hand-lettered and hand-drawn by Bougie and the whole cadre of featured creators.

Featured in this first issue are:
The bizarre comics of the 'Children of God' cult, Joe Matt, 'The Eyes of Jade', Larry Fuller, Julian Lawrence's 'Crucial Fiction', Marc Hansen's 'Doctor Gorpon', Salvatore Perretti's 'Ultraficiton', Tim Grant's 'Off-Kilter', Art Wetherell's '2 Hot Girls on a Hot Summer Night', Jim Pinkoski's 'Spaced', Susan Van Camp's 'Varcel's Vixens', Jeff Bennett's 'Demon's Blood', Skids Clark's 'Stimulator', Marc Bell's 'There is Nothing!' ...and SO SO much more, including the regular feature: 'The indie comic cover art hall of fame'.
