Jeff Jones' Spasm
Spasm was published by Last Gasp in 1973, and was a collection of hard to find strips from Jeff Jones' early career. A few of these strips were later reprinted by Pacific in Ravens & Rainbows #1, complete with sympathetic new colouring, but these pages are colourful enough in black and white.
I'm a sucker for Jones' feather light visual poetry, even if I don't always understand it. But Jeff understood it, and that's really all that matters. Some work engages the subconscious rather than the intellect.
