The new adventures of Jesus : the second coming by Frank Stack( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jesus is back in this groundbreaking collection from Harvey Pekar's Our Cancer Year collaborator. Underground comics were known for their satirical assaults on beliefs held dear by middle America. None was more witty or biting than the very first underground comic ever published: Frank Stack's The Adventures of Jesus. Stack's controversial strip first saw print in the Texas counterculture publications The Charlatan and The Austin Iconoclastic and the University of Texas humor magazine The Texas Ranger. In 1964, Texas Ranger editor Gilbert Shelton (who would later go on to create the little known Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers) made 50 photocopies of about a dozen strips, stapled and collated the pages, designed a cover and distributed it to friends around campus. In this witty addendum to the New Testament, Jesus fulfills his promise "to reward the just and punish the unjust," yet returns to Earth with remarkably little fanfare. He soon realizes he may have postponed his second coming a bit too long, arriving when the planet has fallen into a dangerously advanced state of decrepitude, i.e., the late 20th Century. Nonetheless, Jesus is determined to carry out his sacred obligation. Fantagraphics Books is proud to collect, for the first time, over 40 years worth of The New Adventures of Jesus -- including a brand new story by Stack. This edition also features an introduction by R. Crumb and a preface by Gilbert Shelton."--Publisher's website
Foolbert Funnies Histories and Other Fictions by Frank Stack( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguably the creator of the first underground comic book in the early 1960s, Frank Stack has been creating observational, iconoclastic art for more than fifty years. Foolbert funnies collects, for the first time, comics inspired by Stack's pop culture-filled childhood and travails as a fine arts professor, many of which were originally published under his pseudonym, Foolbert Sturgeon, in comic books and magazines such as National Lampoon. In Foolbert funnies, you'll find adventures of Dirty Diana; nostalgic time-traveler Frank Crankcase; commonsensical Dr. Feelgood; politician Paddy Booshwah; Southern-fried homicide; and a host of Amazons, artists, and pulp heroes
