Item #5844 CAPTIVE CHAINS. Raymond Pettibone, pseud. of Raymond Pettibon.


Lawndale, CA: SST Publications / Raymond Ginn, 1978. The celebrated artist's first publication, one which blurs the lines between an artist's book, graphic novel, and a zine. Produced by Black Flag's label SST Productions, the print run was reportedly 5,000 copies, of which only 100 found their way into commercial distribution. A series of ultra-violent vignettes – a forerunner of sorts to Frank Miller's Sin City series – presented in the stark, black and white style which has become Pettibon's MO. OCLC notes a dozen holdings in the U.S. Item #5844

Slim quarto; original pictorial wrappers, stapled; [66]pp; illus. Subtle hint of yellowing to front wrapper, else Fine.
