The Print Mint, Inc. was a major publisher and distributor of underground comix based in the San Francisco Bay Area during the genre’s late 1960s-early 1970s heyday. Starting as a retailer of psychedelic posters, the Print Mint soon evolved into a publisher, printer, and distributor. It was “ground zero” for the psychedelic poster.
Inspired by horror EC Comics from the 1950s, Insect Fear is an all-star-studded series of deadly, frightening and/or simply unnerving encounters between humans and the superior race of insects. Full series review coming soon.
