Greaser Comics

Adults only. If you're too young to be viewing adult material, SCRAM!

GREASER COMICS #1 came from George DiCaprio and Richard Jaccoma in 1971. It's crude, violent, sexy and sexist — what we expect from an underground comic book. The art is influenced by Spain and S. Clay Wilson. Richard Jaccoma did the artwork;  it's grotesque, the work of a talented amateur rather than a polished professional, which seems right for the material. It was followed it in 1972 with GREASER COMICS #2.

Oh yeah...writer George DiCaprio is the dad of movie star Leonardo DiCaprio, which has nothing to do with his career in underground comix. but it's always good to name drop.
