committeead

Ad for The Committee found in the underground comic “Air Pirates Funnies #1”. Art by Gary Hallgren, Shary Flenniken and Bobby London. Published by Hell Comics in July 1971 and distributed by Last Gasp, the comic appears to have consisted mainly of Disney characters doing drugs and screwing each other. The comic lead to a pretty controversial lawsuit over the legal definition of parody. The head of the Air Pirates collective, Dan O’Neill, was the illustrator of the popular comic strip Odd Bodkins and was a friend of The Committee. Sent in from our new friend Greg Freeman. By the way, if you have any Committee-related items that you’d like to share, as W said, “Bring it on!”
