DISCLAIMER: GRAPHIC CONTENT WARNING: Newave! presents an almost encyclopedic volume of independent comics artists and writers that provides invaluable access to underground publishing. Considering the subversive nature of this uninhibited output, Newave! is recommended especially to mature audiences.
Newave! is a gigantic collection of the best small press cartoonists to emerge after the first generation of underground cartoonists (such as R. Crumb, Gilbert Shelton, and Art Spiegelman) paved the way. These cartoonists, inspired by the freewheeling creative energy of the underground comix movement, began drawing and printing their own comix seen here in over 800 pages of glorious work. "...[A] fascinating treasure trove of an anthology... In addition to work by greats like Artie Romero, Rick Geary, and Mary Fleener, and 50 or so others, [Newave!] serves as the history of a movement." -- Publishers Weekly
