“Vaughn Bodē was one of the lights of America… He really was a star.” – Moebius

Once upon a time, at two-thirty in the afternoon, on the enchanted island of York, lived a Wizard… A mild-mannered, lovable Wizard who wore a big hat to mask his true identity… But just who is under the big hat, just who is… Cheech Wizard?

Vaughn Bodē created Cheech in 1956 at the age of 15 and the character remained a constant companion for the rest of Bodē’s life, surfacing in his college paper, underground comix, the
National Lampoon, and ultimately beyond into the cosmically collective world of graffiti and hip hop. The Big Book of Me brings this elemental, pop-essential corpus of transcendent art to the masses collecting all of the Cheech Wizard comics in a single volume.

“Cheech Wizard ... droppin' science like Galileo dropped the orange.” – The Beastie Boys

•Comics review blog

“The very first comic strip of Cheech the Wizard was drawn by Vaughn Bodé on a series of notebook pages in 1957. As the legend goes, the famous underground character came to Bodé as he contemplated a can of chee-chee nuts. Cheech the Wizard would go on to become a big player in underground comix celebrating sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. He was a Pogo for a mature audience with a similar whimsical quality masking a subversive humor.” – Henry Chamberlain

“The comics in which Cheech Wizard first appeared have been out of print for years. … [now] decades of Bodé’s work will get its due.”
