The secret origin of snakes
My favorite creator from the Golden Age of Undergrounds, Gilbert Shelton (here aided and abetted by Tony Bell), with Wonder Wart-Hog back in the age of dinosaurs. Not only do we see a Tyrannosaur whose teeth have been knocked out by a fighting-mad super-powered humanoid wart-hog (and how often does THAT happen), not only do we learn how snakes actually lost their legs (it was not millions of years of evolution, as we have been led to believe)... but we see the ancestor of a famous Muppet and the first recorded instance of a famous sound effect. How much history can one page hold?
