    Robert Crumb Motor City Comics #2 Shuman the Human 1-Page Story Original Art (Rip Off Press, 1970). It's a rough time for poor Shuman as things literally go "bump in the night" -- very funny, Mr. Snoid! Classic "Shuman the Human's Night of Terror" one-pager by R. Crumb, from his most prime comix period. Shuman the Human only appeared a handful of times, with his first being Zap Comix #1 (as "Schuman"); his last official comic book page was in 1972's People's Comix as a collaboration with Robert's brother Max. This is perhaps Shuman's finest moment, with a very funny cameo by Mr. Snoid capping the page. The art is in ink (and lots of it) on paper, with an image area measuring 8" x 12", matted to an overall size of 16" x 20". In Very Good condition with some paper toning. From the Felix Dennis Estate.
