    Robert Crumb - Original Art for HUP #9, Complete 10-page Story, "He's a Natural Man!" (Last Gasp, 1989). This is a complete, ten page Mr. Natural story by Robert Crumb, which stars two of his most recognizable characters, Devil Girl and Flakey Foont. Flakey Foont tells Mr. Natural that he is obsessed with Cheryl Borck, a.k.a. Devil Girl, and wants to go find her. Of course, the Devil Girl is already there, and is madly in love with Mr. Natural. This story is full of all of the classic Crumb images, the type that could only come from his mind, and could only be published in Underground comix. When seen up close, it is apparent exactly how much time he puts into every single panel. The art conveys all of the character's emotions in a way that no other artist has ever been able to duplicate. When originally printed in HUP #9, this story ran on the last ten pages of the book, meaning that the last page of the story was actually the back cover of the comic; one heck of a bonus, we think! All of the artwork is in perfect condition, with no staining, pinholes or tears. Mr. Crumb has used some white-out on every page. These pages measure 14" x 17" each.
