BINKY BROWN MEETS THE HOLY VIRGIN MARY (Berkeley, CA: Last Gasp Eco-Funnies, 1972).

First printing (includes drawing of the Virgin Mary behind lines of text in the bottom left panel of page 23). Slight darkening along edge of spine to lower wrapper, o/w Very Good plus.

Justin Green's underground classic in which he takes the persona of Binky Brown to tell of the compulsive neurosis he suffered from in his youth (he blamed it on his strict Roman Catholic upbringing and was later diagnosed with OCD). His confessional tone influenced the work of Robert Crumb, Aline Kominsky and Art Spiegelman, and the story is now regarded as the first major work of autobiography in English-language comics.
