A set of all twenty comics published by Felix Dennis's imprint, together with The Trials of Nasty Tales, co-published by H. Bunch "in league with the editors of Nasty Tales" in 1973.

The content of the first five issues includes a mix of US and UK material (Robert Crumb; Greg Irons; Kim Veitch; Jay Kinney; Rod Beddall; Dave Gibbons; William Rankin; Malcolm Livingstone; and others), with the third issue (described by Mal Burns in his 'Comix Index' as "…a landmark in British alternative graphic publishing") devoted to the work of the British artist, Mike Weller.

The fifteen comics that follow the publication of Cozmic Comics #5 (February 1973) comprise a mix of anthologies of UK material, US reprints, and comics devoted to the work of individual British artists: Edward's Heave Comics (devoted solely to work by Edward Barker); Half Assed Funnies; Ogoth and Ugly Boot (art by Chris Welch, script by Chris Rowley and Mick Farren); Rock 'n' Roll Madness (a parody of rock musicians, featuring contributions from Mick Farren, Ed Barker, Chris Welch, Felix Dennis, Dick Pountain, Richard Adams, and others); Sin City; View From The Void; Zip Comics; Animal Weirdness; Bijou Funnies (Robert Crumb, Jay Lynch); Cosmic Comics #6; Dope Fiend Funnies; Rock 'n' Roll Madness #2 (Greg Irons front cover); Tales from the Fridge; It's Only Rock 'n' Roll Comix (Joe Petagno); and Serious Comics (William Rankin).

Cozmic Comics launched in 1972 and was given further impetus when Felix Dennis and his associate Dick Pountain began looking for new publishing opportunities following the closure of Oz magazine at the end of October 1973. When the emphasis gradually swung away from reprints of American material towards a series of comics featuring the work of individual British artists, most notably Ed Barker, Mike Weller, Joe Petagno and William Rankin (aka Wyndham Raine), it created its own distinctive identity and established itself as the longest running, best distributed and most successful British 'underground' of the day.
