B&W Illustrations; This comic book is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some beginning rubbing and bumping. There is some light toning to the rear cover. The text pages are clean and bright, but have some generalized light toning due to the acid content of the paper. "Though horror and violence had already surfaced in some undergrounds (e. G. , Bogeyman) , nothing compared to Skull Comix #1, which featured the decapitation of a naked woman and zombies on peyote, and those were mere harbingers of what was to come. Skull explored all manner of the horror genre, from interpreting the classic writings of Edgar Allan Poe to modern elucidations and hallucinations. Skull didn't venture quite so extensively as its spiritual compatriot Slow Death, so it might not be considered as broadly entertaining, but it mined the traditional horror genre unlike any other anthology in the underground. The macabre tales of H. P. Lovecraft were prominently featured in the fourth and fifth issues of the series. The series finale in issue #6 featured a gruesome, marvelous full-length epic of horror by Tom Veitch, illustrated in two parts by Greg Irons and Richard Corben."
