COMICS 1980'S

REBEL GRAPHICS #3

image20

 (1989 Manna Underground Press)
This 20 page newspaper tabloid collected numerous Pond Pal strips and the full run of Wilbur strips which ran during 1984 and 1985 in Youngstown State University's Jambar newspaper. Both strips featured Platt! The paper also printed comic work from Yambar's middle and high school days. Vanity…vanity… Very limited quantity available. 

REBEL GRAPHICS #2

 (1989 Manna Underground Press)
This 28 page newspaper tabloid collected numerous strips, spot cartoons, and Yambar's complete Doody And Ditto comix from the pages of Manna Underground Press (1981 – 1985) and The Activist (1985 – 1988). Doody And Ditto had a very loyal following during the 1980's contemporary Christian Arts community when The Activist enjoyed a 13 country readership. Even now images of nuns with chainsaws and 'Stay – Puffed Jimmy Swaggart Marshmallow Men' cause a chuckle. There's even an interview with Yambar about these years as an artist and publisher.  

SAFE COMIX #2

 (1989 Graphic Graphix)
This 32 page magazine contained 7 pages of Yambar related story including a 4 page installment featuring two of his first characters created in 1979. Also includes a Pre-Substance Quarterly story featuring "Marble", by Gary A. Smith and Yambar. Printed in a yellow paper cover. Rare.  

SAFE COMIX #1

image23

(1988 Graphic Graphix)
This 64 page collection was once the largest Christian Cartoon Anthology in existence – but that was in 1988! Yambar designed the two color art for this glossy covered magazine/comic and 11 interior pages of comics fall into his creative control. (There's even a rare two page Robert Crumb cartoon from 1984!) Very hard to find! Very low quantity.    

REBEL GRAPHICS #1

image24

 (1984 Manna Underground Press)
This magazine sized newspaper includes 32 pages of experimental cartoons and graphics. The cover was drawn by Yambar who also contributed 23 pages of story, 16 of which contain his art. Very rare!   

NO BUTS ABOUT IT / THE JESUS FREAK

image25

 (1980 Highway Tabernacle Publishing)
These two cartoon booklets/ gospel tracts are the rarest of all of Chris Yambar's published comic art and contain some of his earliest work. These were originally published by Highway Tabernacle's Youth Department and used for evangelistic outreach in the schools of Youngstown, Ohio. According to Yambar "They still contain some of the best advice ever given to this planet." Thousands were printed but few ever surface for collectors.
