*Undergrounds: Not named for the Wizard from the films, but because its first incarnation (1963-1969) originated in the creators’ native Australia, Oz Magazine’s London edition hit the streets in 1967, and became much more notorious than its parent. Oz became synonymous with the psychedelic counterculture, regularly enraging the British Establishment with a range of stories including heavy coverage of the anti-war movement, discussions of drugs, sex and alternative lifestyles, and contentious political issues, presented alongside challenging artwork, including contributors from the world of Underground Comix. Issue #28, guest-edited by twenty teenagers between 15 and 17, triggered ‘The Trial Of Oz’, primarily because of its co-opting iconic character Rupert the Bear into a pornographic comic strip. We have acquired a selection of the London Oz, from #18 to #44, including the notorious ‘School Kids’ issue #28 (VG+ £50). Limited circulation – and frequent seizures and destruction by the loveable lads and lasses of the Metropolitan Police – ensure that these counter-cultural artefacts are vanishingly scarce today.
