Press Release 

Out Now: Fogel’s Underground Price & Grading Guide 2015-16

The 2015-16 Fogel’s Underground Price & Grading Guide Volume One includes over 9,600 listings (almost twice as many as the 2006 Guide). This rewritten edition has updated prices and detailed printing identification for the classic, latest, and newly discovered Underground Comix and Adult Comic Books, Graphic Novels, Alternatives, Independents, Small Press, and popular titles not covered by Overstreet’s Comic Book Price Guide. Articles include a grading guide, Zap Comix retrospective, art and photo galleries, biographies, and a market analysis.

Written by Dan Fogel with articles by M. Steven Fox, Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg, Robert Beerbohm, and others, in consultation with leading scholars and dealers, it features new art by Frank Stack, S.S. Crompton, and Randy Vogel, as well as reprinting nearly a thousand book covers.

“The new guide is REALLY impressive. Really worth the wait!” commented comics historian/retailer Bud Plant, and his seminal Bud’s Art Books Catalog review highlights “A cool full color section features the top UG artists surrounded by their typical comix titles, including Crumb, Shelton, Moscoso, Spain, Wilson, Robert Williams and Vaughn Bodé. A special article looks at the history of the seminal Zap Comix and its contributors."

FUGG Volume Two will document the Psychedelic Rock Posters, Tijuana Bibles, Counterculture Tabloid Newspapers and Fanzines, as well as updated International and Minicomix publishing info and prices.

The $39.95 softcover edition features 336 pages including 2 color sections; the $74.95 hardcover limited edition of 100 includes a book plate signed by Dan Fogel and Frank Stack. The “FUGG” is published by Hippy Comix and sponsored by the Bill Graham Archives at Wolfgang’s Vault.

Copies may be purchased from the publisher’s website or ordered from your local comic book store.

Meet the author and Midwest Underground Comix artists Saturday, June 27, at Tara Seibel Art Gallery, 12201 Mayfield Rd, Cleveland, Ohio. Gallery info: (216) 375-0760.
