Raw # 2: - Art Spiegelman -the Graphix Magazine Of Damned Intellectuals 1980 For Sale
Spiegelman has often described the reasoning and process that lead Mouly to start the magazine: after the demise of Arcade, the '70s underground comics anthology he co-edited with Bill Griffith,
and the general waning of the underground scene, Spiegelman was
despairing that comics for adults might fade away for good, but he had
sworn not to work on another magazine where he would be editing his
peers because of the tension and jealousies involved; however, Mouly had
her own reasons for wanting to do just that. Having set up her small
publishing company, Raw Books & Graphics, in 1977, she saw a
magazine encompassing the range of her graphic and literary interests as
a more attractive prospect than publishing a series of books. At the
time, large-format, graphic punk and New Wave design magazines like Wet were distributed in independent bookstores. Mouly had earlier installed a printing press
in their fourth floor walk-up Soho loft and experimented with different
bindings and printing techniques. She and Spiegelman eventually settled
on a very bold, large-scale and upscale package. Calling Raw a
"graphix magazine", they hoped their unprecedented approach would bypass
readers' prejudices against comics and force them to look at the work
with new eyes.
This sale contains one copy of Raw Magazine #2 (Volume 1) from 1980. The magazine contains the first issue
