In photographs in volume five of the set, Wilson appears larger than life, flipping off the camera and grinning maniacally. If Griffin and Moscoso were expanding what comics could be, then Wilson was expanding what they could be about, and bringing everyone along with him. Jeet Heer has argued that Wilson is the central artist of the underground generation because his unhinged, unashamed comics gave Crumb and others permission to untether their own work from personal censorship and social taboos.

Williams wonders, with good reason, whether Shelton, not Crumb, was the first underground cartoonist. His Wonder Wart-Hog is a buffoon, an anti-Superman whose lust rivals, and frequently befuddles, his attempts at heroism.

Wonder Wart-Hog is highly entertaining and reads like classic comic strips yet with a deeply lascivious twist and a subtle, though sharp, satirical streak. A pot comedy, starring the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, in issue 5 reflects the general fear by publishers at the time of being arrested by the police for pornography Zap 4 had been busted. In the event that police discover their illicit activities, the brothers construct an elaborate trap in their apartment in order to delay the cops while they flush their stash.

The Story – Zap Comics Vol. 0 – 15 (1968-)

It feels uninspired, as Rodriguez comix go, with none of the depth that characterizes his best-loved work. He had come to San Francisco in only for a visit and shortly returned to New York, where he was working at the East Village Other. He sat out issue 5 and then moved back to the West Coast in time to contribute to issue 6.

His contributions bear the closest resemblance to short stories, and, through the course of the issues, they become increasingly sophisticated, with real-life details that lend the narrative authenticity.

He is easily the most politically engaged of the bunch. In New York, he had been involved with an anarchist group whose platform proved too radical but whose determination, Rosenkranz notes, he admired.

A photograph in volume 5 shows Rodriguez being escorted away from a Vietnam War protest by no fewer than four mounted policeman. Trashman, his Marxist working-class hero, appears in two issues of Zap. By later issues, Rodriguez develops a balance between white and black spaces that is stunning, particularly in stories, like those of Trashman, where there is more dark than light; the pages appear as if lit from behind.

One, from the early seventies, shows the magnificent seven lined up on a street corner. Five of them stare across the street into the camera.

Moscoso turns his face away, and Crumb, at the far end of the line, leans into the street to glimpse the lineup. After issue 2, the four artists then working on Zap—Crumb, Moscoso, Griffin, and Wilson—formed a legal partnership, called Apex Novelties, and trademarked the name Zap. They also entered into an agreement with Don Schenker at Print Mint, who agreed to cover the costs of the offset printing and art reproduction, while the artists retained copyrights to the comics and film from which the issues were printed.

Conflicts among the artists seem never to have concerned content, but decisions regarding the logistics of the group were occasionally fraught.

The most divisive disagreement involved the question of who might contribute to the comic. Crumb felt that by Zap had become the establishment, but he found himself in the minority. Allworth Press.
