A few of the featured titles:

Below Ambition by Simon Hanselmann

Megg and Werewolf Jones are Horse Mania. Horse Mania is a test of the audience’s patience, proudly the “worst band in town,” without any ambition to make it. Join the musicians as they battle through shoddy, distracted practice sessions, a squalid house show, and a doomed interstate tour. Watch as they drunkenly flail through their sets amidst toothaches, nervous breakdowns, suicide attempts, mounting hatred, and a galaxy of benzos. This is music and performance in its most primal, multifaceted, and pure form. Feel the tension. See the dirty looks. Taste the pain. Smell the depravity. Hear the veiled beauty. Horse Mania wants you to lose your mind.

The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers: Grass Roots and Other Follies by Gilbert Shelton, Paul Mavrides, and Dave Sheridan

The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers — Freewheelin’ Franklin, Phineas, and Fat Freddy — score some sinsemilla from a country cousin, start a softball league to score free drinks, adopt a possessed parakeet that outwits the D.E.A., and inadvertently take in a couple of undercover cops as housemates! The title story collects an epic that ran for over six months in newspapers, in which the Brothers, evicted from their apartment, move to the country to get back to nature — only to discover that nature doesn’t want them! Meanwhile, Fat Freddy’s Cat adapts much more readily to outdoor living. Then, in a bonus tale, the cat leads the way in the accidental animal rights adventure, “Animal Camp.”

Starseeds by Charles Glaubitz

“The defining characteristic of Starseeds is its ability to mix genre with the metaphysical, and in doing so, it generates an otherworldliness that is strange and compelling.” — Sequential State

Light travels through space and brings a prophecy of the awakening of the Crystal Sigil. At the same time, the secret society of Illuminati steals from the four elements to create a new fifth element that has the power to become any object of desire. The ensuing epic battle pits the warrior-like Starseed Children — who are the end result of the evolution of revolution within our system of genetics, philosophy, science, and art — against the Illuminati and their masters, the Annunaki, and the coming of the black darkness. It’s a trippy, psychedelic read–and don’t miss Volume 2!

Crashpad by Gary Panter

“Panter’s painstakingly detailed acid-trip vision offers art comics heads an immersive rabbit-hole experience and sneaky satire on a navel-gazing subculture.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In 2017, Gary Panter created an art installation, Hippie Trip, inspired by his first visit to a head shop in 1968. It expanded his mind to the possibilities of psychedelic art and music, analog crafts and drug culture. Crashpad is an extension of that installation and a riff on underground comics creators such as Zap’s R. Crumb, Victor Moscoso, Robert Williams, and other icons of that era.

The Complete Hate by Peter Bagge

An archival collection of one of the bestselling alternative comic book series — arguably, the Great American Grunge novel — complete for the first time.

“The box set provides a fancy way to relive the highs and lows of the decade seen through Bagge’s twisted lens, and to enjoy some of the best, most iconic comic storytelling of the era.” — Rob Salkowitz – Forbes
