This collection reminds me of back in the day when used record stores pulled 10 obscure and bizarre records, wrapped them in brown paper-bag, and then tried to sell them for $2.

This is an interesting collection of obscure comics by various hands, most though not all obscure themselves, from the forties through the seventies or so.
