    Drew Friedman Heavy Metal V7#9 December 1983 Complete 1-Page Story Original Art (HM Communications, 1983). This month's "HM's Star Dissections" from Drew Friedman is titled "Larry Finearama Nitemare" and features fantastic and meticulously stippled artwork of The Three Stooges' own middle-stooge, Larry Fine! This piece also was reprinted in Friedman's 1985 tabloid format book Any Similarity to Persons Living or Dead Is Purely Coincidental. Friedman's stipple technique was extremely time-consuming and he later gave up this style, making the early works by this modern master all the more rare. Produced in ink and Zipatone on 8" x 11" illustration board. Text is printed paste-up, and the header (including the row of Larry-heads), and closing text are stat paste-ups. The page is lightly toned (paste-ups more so than art), otherwise in Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
