Pirates In The Heartland: The Mythology Of S. Clay Wilson Vol. 1 – June 10, 2014

Blandt ZAP generationen af undergrundstegnere er Robert Crumb vel nok den største, i hvert fald den mest kendte, men selv en superstjerne som Crumb har sine forbilleder, sine favoritter, og her indtræder biker børgen S Clay Wilson som Crumb’s absolutte yndling. Han er ikke blevet genoptrykt og antologiseret i nær samme grad som Crumb selv, Checkered Demon vol.1 på Last Gasp i 1997, og så en kaffebords-hc, The Art of S Clay Wilson, på Ten Speed Press i 2006. Det vil det gode forlag Fantagraphics nu råde bod på til sommer, med den første af i alt tre binds’ biografi og antologi, der skal fremstå som det ultimative værk om denne vanvittige, tabu-nedbrydende tegner, der var i spydspidsen af undergrunden, også lang tid efter dens storhedstid i slutningen af tresserne.

amazon.com review:

This is a biography of a legendary underground cartoonist (contemporary and collaborator with Robert Crumb), most famous for his Checkered Demon character.

The is the definitive account of the boldest and most audacious of the legendary underground cartoonists: the taboo busting, eyeball blistering S. Clay Wilson. This first volume contains all of his underground comic stories from Zap Comix, Snatch, Gothic Blimp Works, Bogeyman, Felch, Insect Fear, Pork, Tales of Sex and Death, and Arcade magazine as well as the many adventures of the Checkered Demon, Star-Eyed Stella, and Captain Pissgums, and even his earliest collaborations with William Burroughs. Also: selections from his teenaged and college years, both in comics and painting form. First person accounts from his peers, as well as Wilson’s own words, offer a revealing portrait of the artist who hid his shyness behind brash behavior and bluster. This first of a three-volume biography and retrospective gets to the heart and soul of an artist who lived his dreams and his nightmares. Color and black & white illustrations
