Basil Wolverton's Powerhouse Pepper

Basil Wolverton certainly needs no introduction to classic comics aficionados. His work influenced an entire generation of cartoonists, from Robert Crumb to Pete Bagge. Here is an example featuring his most enduring original character, Powerhouse Pepper. This piece was lovingly reprinted in glorious black and white in Snarf #13 (December 1989). It's a riot, Wyatt!

Want more? Of course you do. Check out The Original Art Of Basil Wolverton , a 200 page feast for the eyes compiled by Glenn Bray and Doug Harvey and published by Lasp Gasp and Grand Central Press. Also available is a collection of his lesser known religious work, The Wolverton Bible, published by Fantagraphics.
