    Description

    Robert Crumb American Splendor #4 Complete 3-Page Story Original Art (Harvey Pekar, 1979). Astonishingly detailed pen-and-brush work from master cartoonist Crumb distinguishes this autobiographical story from Pekar: "The Kissinger Letter" tells of the time that Pekar fired off an angry note to Henry Kissinger (during the height of the Vietnam conflict) -- and was astonished to receive a diplomatic reply. Longtime pals Crumb and Pekar worked beautifully together on such slice-of-life stories, with their attention to facial expressions and environmental detail (an evening in Pekar's neighborhood in Cleveland), with pen-point chiaroscuro and vivid patches of black-ink gravity. The pages are ink over graphite (minimal pencil-strokes) on bright white Bristol board, with an image area of 8.25" x 12.25", professionally matted to 15" x 19.5". The condition is Excellent. From the Eric Sack Collection.
