Ted Richards is probably better known for his Dopin' Dan character and is more infamous for his association with the Air Pirates collective, but some of his finest work may have been in this relatively conventional comic from 1977, long after the golden era of underground comics had ended.

E.Z. Wolf is a very funny comic featuring a robust cast of animal characters in fictional Chitterland County, near the lonely-sounding town of Terminus. The lead character, E.Z Wolf, is part of a community that includes regular folk like Slick Fox and Brer Bill Goat. They mix it up with the obscenely rich (P.J. Pigman), corrupt lawmen (Sheriff George C. Alabama), slimy politicians (Jimmy Otter), and slick mass-media types (Walter J. Weasel). The cultural bend is sympathetic to the common man, common sense and mainstream beliefs, but it never feels like preaching because Richards takes delight in bringing down the pompous and the pretentious.


It is currently unknown how many copies were printed of this comic book. It has not been reprinted.
