Description:
Robert Crumb Mr. Natural Weekly Comic Strip #3 Original Art (Village Voice, 1976). Robert Crumb introduced the term "fanboy" to the general public in this third installment of the strip done for the Village Voice in 1976-77 (and which later appeared as part of Mr. Natural #3, published by Kitchen Sink Press). Actually, "fanboy" first appeared as an obscure, low print-run comic, and its title was suggested as a joke by cartoonist Jay Lynch, but Crumb's use of the term caught on, especially at conventions. This particular piece features Mr. Natural with his own "fanboy," named Billy Bob, who is reluctantly accepted by the old sage as a sidekick. The ink on bristol strip has an image area of approximately 12.5" x 9"; there are some stains along the border areas; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.

Crumb, Robert:Robert Crumb was born on August 30, 1943 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He and his four brothers and sisters all produced home-made comics as children. Crumb's fist published work was as an artist for American Greetings cards. In 1967, Crumb moved to San Francisco, where he produced the first issue of Zap Comix, which kickstarted the entire Underground Comix movement. Among his famous creations are Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural. He was the subject of Terry Zwigoff's 1994 documentary film, Crumb. Robert Crumb and his wife, cartoonist Aline, currently live in France.. Underground cartoonist
