The first volume (of four) collecting Edward (Ted) Bolman’s one-of-a-kind Naugacomics series.
Naugacomics are similar in spirit and format to Steve Willis’ Morty Comix and are another precursor to the current ACEO / art cards. Like Morty Comix, the typical format of the Naugas was the hand-drawn, four-page booklet. Some were sketchy, some were more polished, some were hand-colored. Some of them even represented installments in continuing stories – the long-running “Houseboat on the Styx” serial, for example. Begun in January, 1986, over 500 (perhaps more) were produced and are scattered around the globe. This series attempted to collect as many of them as possible.
This series was published by Jeff Nicholson (Ultra Klutz), who was also responsible for the Steve Willis Archives series. Introduction by Wayno (whose Howie the Hat makes a few appearances in this volume).
Specs: 72 pages, saddle-stitched, 7 x 8½”. Published by Onward Comics, 1989 (1st printing of 100 copies).
Condition: Minor wear, complete and intact, no tears or markings, tight binding, clean interiors. Please enlarge the images for a closer look.
>> Steven Ogden Collection <<
This item comes from the collection of the late Steven Ogden, fanzine author, publisher, researcher and my friend. Steve was active in fandom (SF/fantasy and comics), including APAs (FAPA, CAPA-Alpha) and publishing for decades under the Spotted Zebra Press/New Spotted Zebra Press banners (with his wife, Vicki). His publications include the massive Brad W. Foster Checklist of Published Works from the 20th Century, Edgar’s Journal, Ouroborus and many others.
