Welcome on this blog full of information about Underground Comix and Alternative Comics, and offcourse the comics.

Underground comix are small press or self-published comic books which are often socially relevant or satirical in nature. They differ from mainstream comics in depicting content forbidden to mainstream publications by the Comics Code Authority, including explicit drug use, sexuality and violence. They were most popular in the United States between 1968 and 1975, and in the United Kingdom between 1973 and 1974. plaatje2

Robert Crumb, Gilbert Shelton, and numerous other cartoonists created underground titles that were popular with readers within the counterculture scene. Punk had its own comic artists like Gary Panter. Long after their heyday underground comix gained prominence with films and television shows influenced by the movement and with mainstream comic books, but their legacy is most obvious with alternative comics.

You can access the information and comics through the sidebar.

The comics are mostly in packages from around 100mb, inside these rar-packages you will find the comics in cbr format.

plaatje5You can view the comics with any cbr-reader like CDisplay or ComicRack.

I did not scan the comics myself only collect them from various sites on the internet, internet archive, Usenet Newsgroups and torrents.
So thanks to all the scanners and uploaders.

This blog is purely ment to preserve the comics and to enjoy them, no financial meanings are involved, if you like the comics buy them as long as they are availabe, because nothing can beat the feeling of reading a real comic. plaatje8

If you find something wrong (downloads, numbering, information) please let me know so that i can correct the error.

Thanks Wikipedia for many information about the comics

    I had emailcontact with Tim Lowe, who is one of the artists responsable for the Lost Cause Comix, together with Arnold Willis. I am honored and pleased to say that he let me know that they are working on issue number 4 of the Lost Cause Comix.

    As Tim Lowe stated

    “While over the years since the last comic book we have not published bo-diddly-SQUAT, we never really stopped kicking around the idea of another comic.
    We now have enough material ‘in the can’ to print two comics, a 48 pager with no concrete date set but most likely this fall and another with a date set as when we get around to it”

    Here’s a description of the new comic according to Tim Lowe :

    We’ve always enjoyed the longer stories that start mildly silly but build to epic proportions, so in this new issue we focused on one long story, 48 pages in length. Flip Dip and Drip have an adventure that begins with a homemade sauna that runs on eight microwaves and a bucket of water—when tested malfunctions to the point of ripping a time wormhole in the floor. Multiple universes bring about multiple Flip Dips and Drips involved in variations of the same adventure which frankly is unrelated to time travel. LOL hope this makes sense! I handle the art for the first 22 pages, then when they step through the wormhole Arn takes over the art (parallel universe) until at the end, we’re co-mingling the art and characters. Whew.

    Here is a preview of the cover.

    This will be the inside-cover.
