While other budding comics artists were probably practicing their takes on Spidey and Doc Doom, here's an early example of what I was doing. Presenting my 1975 (I'm guessing) Gerry Comix. I was ten. The Gerry caricature is blatantly stolen from Robert Grossman. I was enamored of his comic in New York Magazine. Maybe I'll scan and post some more of my childhood comics.
And yes, that's Nixon reading an issue of Playboy.
