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?

It featured some stand alone strips, and appearances by Wonder Wart-Hog and the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers; the Hog of Steel was fading out as Shelton's attention shifted to the Freaks. "The Indian That Came To Dinner" is a cute little two-pager where a slightly decadent-looking suburban couple go along with "National Bring-an-Indian-Home-to-Dinner Week." There's a gag about the taciturn Indian cooking the Chow dog (this MUST have been old even back then). Then we get to the second page.
