    Robert Crumb Hup #3 Complete Eight-page Story "The Story of My Life" Original Art and Signed Print (Last Gasp, 1989). "Th' Cosmic Whiner" comes through with another wild ride through his life and libido, as he stars in eight pages of unleashed imagination. In this allegorical tale, Crumb pictures himself full-grown but dressed in infant's attire, pushed around in an oversized baby buggy by a typically gorgeous, statuesque female, who of course, is the object of our hero's desires. Only someone with the chutzpah of R. Crumb would dare depict himself in such a loathsome, yet strangely endearing manner as this! Each of the eight pages (five of which may only be seen at is a masterpiece of Crumb crosshatching, with image areas approximately 10.75" x 16.25", all in Excellent condition. In addition, the cover image of Crumb in the buggy was turned into a beautiful, limited edition silkscreen print, and we've included #88/100 here, signed by Crumb in pencil. Adult situations.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
