Is there anywhere on the Internet that has a good database of underground comics akin to the Grand Comics Database or the Comic Book DB? Specifically, I'm looking for as comprehensive of a list as I can muster of the stuff Valentino wrote or contributed to in the late-70s/early-80s outside of the obvious Aardvark/Renegade titles. I figured if anyone would know, it would be the folks here (including Jim himself).

I've put together a pretty big list so far from my own searches:

1978:
Christmas Comics (Four-Bit Funnies 1)

1979:
Almost Normal Comix (Four-Bit Funnies 2)
Bananarama 1
Cascade Comix Monthly 15-17
F***in' A Funnies (Four-Bit Funnies 3)
Funny Animal Lust (Everyman Studios Mini-Comix 7)
Kid Stuf' (Four-Bit Funnies 4)
Real Assassin Thrills

1980:
Babyfat 11-12, 16
Cascade Comix Monthly 19-21
City Limits Comix 2
Conception (Everyman Studios Mini-Comix 19)
First Klass Komiks (Frivolous Funnies 1)
Joint Effort
Nobel Sperm Funnies
Sweet Cheeks 2
Yer Basic Comix

1981:
Cocaine Comix 2
Collectors Guide to Newave Comix
Comix Wave 3-4
Dope Comix 2
Fit to Be Tied
Fried Brains 4
Goodies 8

1982:
Babyfat 33
Comix Wave 10
Fever Pitch 5
Major Comix

1983:
Comix Wave 13
Goodies 17
Teenybopper Anxieties 1

1985:
Babyfat 50
Dance of Death 9
Our Story Thus Far 2

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Jim had an old website that contained a comprehensive list (Valentino.com? I can't remember). There's a decent chunk of books out there that are not on your list yet

I actually have print outs of the bibliography page from that site. I'll scan and post 'em if I get the ok from one of the 3 moderators- as IIRC a couple of the titles (and possibly a couple of the covers showcased on the pages) had a bit of adult content, and I'm not sure if this board is more "PG" or not

Very cool. Thanks, Bill.

Hopefully they can be posted in some form as a resource to whoever may be interested, but if they can't, I would appreciate it if those could be e-mailed to me.

There are a few in the original post that don't appear on the printout (some issues of Cascade Comix Monthly, etc). I ran across some stuff on ebay like the 1989 benefit comic "Fire Sale" that credited Jim but aren't on the list either. No idea if those credits (ones not found on Jim's old site) are in fact correct

Thanks so much for allowing this to be posted; I appreciate it. Hopefully other folks find it interesting or useful, too.

Of course, the inevitable questions follow... what on Earth is Centaurian #1? Something related to the long-lived Interlac APA? Google is not turning up anything on it at all.

I never heard of Fire Sale.
So, if I'm in it, I didn't know about it.

Fire Sale claims to be "A Benefit for Larry Todd". Per the Comic Book DB, you co-wrote something called "Loser Blues" with a couple people that I'm not familiar with. I've never seen the actual comic, though, so I have no idea if that credit is accurate.
