This is the definitive account of the boldest and most audacious of the legendary underground cartoonists: the taboo busting, eyeball blistering S. Clay Wilson. This first volume contains all of his underground comic stories from ZAP Comix, Snatch, Gothic Blimp Works, Bogeyman, Felch, Insect Fear, Pork, Tales of Sex and Death, and Arcade magazine as well as the many adventures of the Checkered Demon, Star-Eyed Stella, and Captain Pissgums, and even his earliest collaborations with William Burroughs. Also: selections from his teenaged and college years, both in comics and painting form. First person accounts from his peers, as well as Wilson’s own words, offer a revealing portrait of the artist who hid his shyness behind brash behavior and bluster. This first of a three-volume biography and retrospective gets to the heart and soul of an artist who lived his dreams and his nightmares.

"Wilson was the strongest, most original artist of my generation." – R. Crumb

"Outrage just isn't enough, folks, so don't give me any more of that catharsis con. Outrageous is only a byproduct. Sometimes a work is so charged with our calculated aversion it's hard to tell if the artist had any more in mind. To facilitate judgment, then, the best bet is a momentary moratorium on all judgment; if this is successful, the human being on the other end of the work will usually shine through unencumbered. S. Clay Wilson, perhaps the most outrageous of the novo cartoonists, comes through to me as very human." – Ken Kesey, from The Last Supplement to the Whole Earth Catalog, March 1971
