Country: Flag United States Web Site: http://lastgasp.com/ Brands: 7 Indicia Publishers: 7 Series: 170 Printings: 472 (350 Issues) Disclose Notes: Last Gasp is a San Francisco-based book publisher with a lowbrow art and counterculture focus. Owned and operated by founder Ron Turner, for most of its existence Last Gasp was a publisher, distributor, and wholesaler of underground comix and books of all types.

Although the company came onto the scene a bit later than some of the other underground publishers, Last Gasp continued publishing comix far longer than most of its competitors. In addition to publishing notable original titles like Slow Death, Wimmen's Comix, Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary, and Weirdo, it also picked up the publishing reins of important titles — such as Zap Comix and Young Lust — from rivals that had gone out of business.
