The Collected Trashman

Trashman is a rare underground superhero created and drawn by Spain (a.k.a. Manuel Rodriguez) who appeared regularly in underground comix and magazines from 1968 through 1985. Trashman’s first appearance was as a full page serial comic strip in the New York City underground newspaper, the East Village Other. After Spain moved from New York City to San Francisco in 1970, three full length Trashman: Agent of the Sixth International stories were published in Subvert Comics from Rip Off Press from 1970 to 1976.

This edition of Fabulous Find focuses on The Collected Trashman, which collects the East Village strips. It was likely published in 1969, according to some sources, or in 1972, according to others. My copy is not dated, not are any, so your guess is as good as mine! Read more >
