    Description

    Mervin Gilbert (as Mervinius) San Francisco Comic Book #3 Complete 1-Page Story Original Art (San Francisco Comic Book Company, 1971). Titled "From a Dark & Shady Place..." this 12-panel grid complete story features an artist who's ideas are getting away from himself! The strip is dated 3-70 in the lower margin, where it is signed Mervinius. Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12" x 18". Panel 3 has been cut out, and replaced by the artist at the time of creation with another original art panel created on paper affixed to Bristol board and taped-in from the backside. There is a small area "skimmed" off the the bottom margin next to the signature. The board is lightly toned with some minor stains in places. In Very Good condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
