Description

Raw v. 1 n. 1

RAW was a series of comics anthologies edited by Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly that was published from 1980 to 1991. It was an important publication of the 1980s alternative comics movement. As well, RAW was one of the few, regular North American venues for European comics.

This first issue of Raw, published in July 1980, featured a full-color “tipped-on” image glued by hand onto the black and white cover. A copy of Spiegelman’s small format, full-color “Two Fisted Painters” is bound in.

Includes Gross and Winter, Alfred Jarry, Bruno Richard, Geoff Robinson, Kaz, Jacques Tardi, Joost Swarte, Jerry Moriarty, Mark Newgarden, Bazooka, Art Spiegelman, Patricia Caire and James Barth, Lynne Tillman and Mariscal, Mark Beyer, Josh Alan Friedman and Drew Friedman, Heinz Emigholz, David Marc and Gary Hallgren, Françoise Mouly, Winsor McCay, Gerry Capelle, George Griffin, cover by Art Spiegelman

The official print run for this issue comprised 3,500 instead of 5000 copies as the rest did not meet Mouly’s approval. Several of Raw’s initial contributors were cartoonists who Mouly and Spiegelman had either met in Europe or whose work they had encountered in European publications. Others, such as Heinz Emigholz and Patricia Caire, were associated with the filmmakers’ collective that Mouly and Spiegelman had interacted with. Kaz, Mark Newgarden, and Drew Friedman were among Spiegelman’s students at the School of Visual Arts.
