Anarchy Comics: The Complete Collection brings together the legendary four issues of Anarchy Comics (1978–1986), the underground comic that melded anarchist politics with a punk sensibility, producing a riveting mix of satire, revolt, and artistic experimentation. This international anthology collects the comic stories of all thirty contributors from the U.S., Great Britain, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, and Canada.

In addition to the complete issues of Anarchy Comics, the anthology features previously unpublished work by Jay Kinney and Sharon Rudahl, along with a detailed introduction by Kinney, which traces the history of the comic he founded and provides entertaining anecdotes about the process of herding an international crowd of anarchistic cats.

Contributors include: Jay Kinney, Yves Frémion, Gerhard Seyfried, Sharon Rudahl, Steve Stiles, Donald Rooum, Paul Mavrides, Adam Cornford, Spain Rodriguez, Melinda Gebbie, Gilbert Shelton, Volny, John Burnham, Cliff Harper, Ruby Ray, Peter Pontiac, Marcel Trublin, Albo Helm, Steve Lafler, Gary Panter, Greg Irons, Dave Lester, Marion Lydebrooke, Matt Feazell, Pepe Moreno, Norman Dog, Zorca, R. Diggs (Harry Driggs), Harry Robins, and Byron Werner.

This anthology, like the comics collected here, has been the result of the collective efforts, past and present, of numerous collaborators.
The folks at PM Press deserve a special vote of thanks for carrying through all the details associated with publishing a book with enthusiasm and professionalism. In particular I wish to acknowledge Ramsey Kanaan, who tirelessly championed this project until I was finally persuaded to excavate the past and return this material to print. Hats off as well to Craig O’Hara for keeping an eye on our deadlines and attending to all sorts of practical matters; to Scott Braley for scanning the four issues in exemplary fashion; to Romy Ruukel for her copyediting expertise; to Gregory Nipper for his proofreader’s eye; and a special thanks to Brian Layng of briandesign for his crisp and readable book design.
Thanks as well to Paul Mavrides, long-time collaborator on many comix and projects particularly the comix collected here. Paul pitched in on coloring our art featured on the cover, just as he took up the editorial torch in seeing Anarchy #4 through to completion some twenty-five years ago.
Ron Turner of Last Gasp Eco-Funnies, the original publisher of Anarchy Comics , was instrumental in sustaining the comic during the course of its first incarnation. Thank you for your patience and generosity, Ron.
I wish to acknowledge Adam Cornford and Yves Frémion (Épistolier) for their moral support, writing skills, occasional translation work, and editorial collaboration. We could not have done it without you.
On a personal note, I wish to thank my wife, Dixie Tracy-Kinney, for her support during the Anarchy years and over the decades since. It’s been a long strange trip and it ain’t over yet.
Last, but hardly least, I wish to thank the artists and writers who poured their souls into the comix collected here. Spain Rodriguez, Clifford Harper, Melinda Gebbie, and Paul Mavrides in particular served as our "regulars," producing deeply affecting art for all four issues, and they deserve special acknowledgment. But every contributor, no matter how many or how few pages they created, was essential to the project and helped make it what it was. A special thanks to Sharon Rudahl for sharing her previously unpublished biographical story about Victoria Woodhull. It is satisfying to see the Anarchy Comics tradition live on.
In this era of increasingly outlandish intellectual property laws too often deployed in the interests of corporate greed and power, it is easy to forget that the hallmark of underground comix was the principle that the artists and writers involved owned the rights to their own work. Accordingly, all stories and strips in Anarchy Comics were copyrighted in the names of their creators. This holds true for all of the material in this anthology as well, whether reprinted or new. Should anyone wish to reprint material from this publication for whatever purpose, be it commercial, political, or aesthetic they are requested to contact the respective creators c/o PM Press.
