Notable artists published by Last Gasp include Tim BiskupRobert CrumbRichard Corben,Ron EnglishCamille Rose GarciaJustin GreenBill GriffithSpain RodriguezMark RydenDori SedaLarry Welz,Robert Williams, and S. Clay Wilson. In the early 1980s Last Gasp published some of the first books about the West Coast punk rock scene.

Current publishing

Today Last Gasp publishes few comic books, though they have published English-language versions of some mangatitles, including Barefoot GenPure Trance and Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms. The company publishes art and photography books, graphic novels, fiction, and poetry. Last Gasp operates as a publisher, distributor, and wholesaler for books of all types, often with a lowbrow art and counterculture focus.[6]
