    Description

    Bill Griffith San Francisco Comic Book #5 Complete 1-Page Story Original Art (The Print Mint, 1980). Here is a raunchy spoof of the underground newspapers' "personal" advertisements. The page features an early appearance of Griffith's trademark character, Mr. Toad, and two additional characters who foreshadow the artist's eventual creation of Zippy the Pinhead as a comic-book and comic-strip feature. Written by Griffith, in collaboration with fellow Underground Comix pioneer Rory Hayes. Ink over graphite on lightweight Bristol board. Image area, 9.25" x 15.25". Light toning. Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
