Texan teacher, editor, critic, and cartoonist Frank Stack’s The Adventures of Jesus (1962) was arguably the first underground comic book. Stack (b. 1937) was a professor of art at the University of Missouri for forty years, and has a BFA from the University of Texas and an MA from the University of Wyoming. He drew Harvey Pekar’s Our Cancer Year (1994) and edited Naked Cartoonists (2012). His work has been collected in several solo collections, most notably The New Adventures of Jesus (2007).
