    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.
