https://libgen.lc/comics/seriestable.php?series_hash=1bb17945e30892c79513669bd9a3c095 The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R.Crumb This is a truly seminal work from the legendary arch degenerate hisself, when you read this you begin to understand what a masterwork from a master artist is. He took the contract and got $100 000 for it, it took him 5 years. Behold its glory, marvel at its verve, its chiaroscuro. It is a pinnacle work of the comix medium

https://libgen.lc/comics/seriestable.php?series_hash=1e37fd57311ab1d8fe63d561f36fcaaf Louis Riel is not Chester Brown's only readable book but its close, His other one is 'Paying For It', an autobiography. His early work is wonderful art but schizophrenic writing. Fortunately for us he grew out of it and has made these two entertaining and amazing works. Louis Riel seems like a scam with the panels often being largely the same save for minor differences, but they break new ground in comic art for me at least thus making Louis Riel truly cutting edge modern art, of which comix are the only legitimate form thereof. Down with modernism. Autobiographical comics are always puke city but not in the case of Paying For It, which is truly an inspirational book and look into the life of a unique person. Check out the photo portraits of Brown hisself. Amazing. https://libgen.lc/comics/index.php?s=paying+for+it&res=25&sorted=0&mask=0&show=0
Joe Sacco - Footnotes in Gaza http://booksdl.org/comics0/_NON_ENG_ORIG/F/Footnotes%20In%20Gaza%2C%20by%20Joe%20Sacco%20HB%20c/ A staggering work by a colossus in the medium, I believe Joe Sacco was the originator of comic book journalism. Footnotes in Gaza is Sacco's magnum opus where he returns to Palestine for the last time and positively owns the history of an early massacre and brutalizaton of the palestinians by the occuping zionist forces. I was shocked at the magnitude of the largely suppressed crime against humanity occurring in 1956, and this is on top of being familiar with his other works covering palestine and the civil war in the balkans. Check out 'Safe Area Gorazde', another phenomenal work that blends top tier journalism with technical mastery of the medium

Corben, Arnold, Dresser and Bode - Fantagor 3 http://booksdl.org/comics0/_ENG_ORIG_PUBL/_R/real%20free%20press/Fantagor%20%28real%20free%20press%29/ A good Introduction to San Fransisco Underground comix scene. This is the best of the series in my opinion. A solid horror comic with mostly great stories and honest art from talented artists. These guys werent the best known artists but their legacy is something to be proud of. Truly the golden age of indie comics. Noice to have in paper. Last gasp comics were legends of this scene.

Irons, Sheridan, Jack Jackson, Spain - Skull [1971] https://libgen.lc/comics/seriestable.php?series_hash=2b9630fc2e7a53eded246315bd3dd476 A couple of books from the Skull title. Quirky tales that end up being a bit of a letdown honestly but the occasional piece of gold. Most of these artists will go on to mature and produce some stunning graphic novels or iconic series. These ones introduced me to Jack 'Jaxon' Jackson. (now deceased) a craftsman and historian of the highest order. Spain is also a great favorite and his cuthulu horror inspired stories are very memorable, I'm not sure they appear in Skull tho. Real S.F. underground comics and were inspired by goings on at the time.

Jack Jackson - Commanche Moon [1979] http://booksdl.org/comics0/_ENG_ORIG_PUBL/_R/Reed%20Graphica/Comanche%20Moon%20%28Reed%20Graphica%29/ A Historical graphcal exploration of events in the Wild West history. Jaxon has done other works on Texas history and this is the nexus of his writings and drawings . Jaxon produced fictional works along the cuthulu theme that were published through kitchen sink press, a big player in the S.F. underground scene. Death Rattle was the name of one of its better titles.

My True Story - Spain http://booksdl.org/comics0/_ENG_ORIG_PUBL/_F/Fantagraphics/My%20True%20Story/ YoW! Look out its Spain!, This is a true radical at work, he's lived seven lifetimes compared to you. Plus he's an immortal comix legend. How can you be anything other than mesmerized in awe, Quickly! emulate his legend before everyone else does! Spain has done interesting historical tales of the anarchists in spain and the russian revolution. His works appear in diverse titles but kitchen sink has many of his strips.

Katsuhiro Otomo - Akira https://libgen.lc/comics/seriestable.php?series_hash=72afa4dee8a3b7a0ed3aa8ac2e3e2108 Classic literature does not distill to a purer spirt than the Akira tomes. The graphic art in these books gives the winding tale a direct path into your mind that is as straight as an airport runway. The amount of work that has gone into the ruined landscapes and military-industrial backgrounds is clearly from a tiny studio that had a very good program. This link is the konadsha edits and they are slightly different from the Dark Horse translation that left everything in black and white as it should be. i have the dark horse in hardcopy The art and imagination of these books needs to be experienced from the start to the finish without interruption. This is a journey best made with one's full attention to the pathway, Akira is a map to a new place in your dream space. I envy the man who makes the journey for the first time.
(200.59 KB 1039x1590 Watchmensch.jpg)
Johnson and Rohrmuller - Watchmensch https://libgen.lc/comics/index.php?s=watchmensch&res=25&sorted=0&mask=0&show=0 A parody on Alan Moore's Watchmen. Every now and then you come across a meta comic, These are not just rip-offs but serve an important role to elucidate the goings-on behind the art. Some fans like to know a bit about the background while others just read their books. I think its a mistake to ignore the whole picture, because the medium is not really given to have works produced in a garret by an obsessed but brilliant artist. Comic books are a team effort and the ones of any note require financing and production. Unfortunately this will attract hyenas with agendas, and lawyers. Soon I will put up Tintin in Thailand and you will see what I mean.
