S. Clay Wilson

S. Clay Wilson (1941) was the most outrageous of the underground cartoonists. Best known for his Checkered Demon character and as one of the co-founders of the seminal Zap Comix anthology, Wilson cannonballed the collective to new heights of artistic depravity. His taboo-busting, eyeball-blistering comics, teeming with grotesque sex, drunkenness, and violence, truly changed the course of the medium.
