Jimbo Raw One-Shot
This Jimbo book by Gary Panter is something I've treasured for 30 years. I bought it in 1982 from a headshop in Boulder, Colorado, called the Pipefitter. I hadn't heard of Gary Panter before seeing the book. I was attracted to its large-format (14.5 inches x 11 inches) and especially the cardboard outer cover with the small black and red label glued onto it.

It was published by Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly's (who also published RAW, a seminal underground comics anthology that showcased the early work of a great many talented artists, including Panter). At the time I thought $3 was a lot of money for a comic book! (Amazon has some used copies of Jimbo available. The cheapest is $30, which is well worth the price.)
