I work in "vintage" comics and original comic art (We just has a $6,000,000 auction last week!) and and have been for about 35 years. I still read atleast 1 comic every night.

The comics mentioned above are great reads, but there are so many other great titles out there as well. It's cheaper, these days, to buy the trade paperback (TPB) that collects multiple issues than buying the single issues and you can get about 15-25% off those prices on places like Amazon and such.

Many comics are not written for kids anymore, but for the 17-50 crowd.

If anyone wants, I can put a list together of great reads, so you don't waste money on the garbage titles.
Peace,

I have a Grateful Dead Comix No. 2 in my GD memorabilia suitcase. It is priced at $12 in a curio shop online.

I was wondering if it was a comic that was appreciated by anyone in the mainstream comic world. I am curious about the back story of it. Whose idea was it to begin with, why that particular storyline and of course who were the artists. The artwork is very good.

I plan to do research on it, but I thought the comic folk speaking in this thread might know a bit about it.

The cover art is what attracted me to the Comix. I like the "Bozo Express" Bus that is packed with a likely cast of characters. I can clearly see a dark haired, slim Jerry hanging off the front grill outside of the bus. It looks as if Billy is climbing out the driver's side window. There is a real Bozo and a battle to gain control of the steering wheel.

I am going to frame it and hang it alongside my concert posters and stuff.

Have a look:
