Wanna read some trippy excerpts from a 1979 comic based on the writing of drug guru Timothy Leary. The art is by Pete von Sholly and Tim Kummero, while the script was by Von Sholly and George Dicaprio, father of you-know-who. The older Dicaprio was quite active in the underground comics scene before spending more time managing his son’s career.

You can actually read the whole comic, which was published by Last Gasp, in Flickr form here.

  1. Much as I dig Crumb… Greaser Comics #1, a Jersey state crime omnibus by George Dicaprio, stands as my favorite single “underground” issue.
