Overview

The first-ever retrospective of one of the underground comix scene’s most beloved figures, which includes an early, uncompleted collaboration with Ed Piskor (X-Men: Grand Design, Hip Hop Family Tree).


Jay Lynch was a counterculture artist whose career as cartoonist, satirist, and archivist spanned over six decades. Ink & Anguish is the definitive anthology of Lynch’s life as he contributed to the earliest underground comix, designed timeless novelties, and took up painting. This book collects all his signature Nard n’ Pat stories; selections from comics like Bijou Funnies and Mineshaft; a sampling of his art for Bazooka Joe, Wacky Packages, and Garbage Pail Kids; and collaborations with Art Spiegelman, Robert Crumb, and Ed Piskor. Featuring narration by comics historian Patrick Rosenkranz, Ink & Anguish is a loving retrospective of an American original.
