    Robert Crumb San Francisco Comic Book #1 Complete 3-Page Story Original Art (San Francisco Comic Book Company, 1970). This three-pager titled "Krude Kut-Ups" dates back to a strange time for Robert Crumb. A bad "acid trip" taken in Cleveland had left him feeling "fuzzy" for months, but as he began to come out of it, he found a new creative urge that resulted in a wild new direction for his comics. Gone were the cute characters and innocent themes, replaced with an anything-goes freedom to express himself as never before. This is Crumb at his first "awaking," in an early story given to comics store owner Gary Arlington; it appeared in the rare first issue of his San Francisco Comic Book. The art is in ink on paper with an image area of 7.5" x 11". With a few assorted stains, the overall condition is Very Good. Rare stuff from the Underground Comix master! From the Eric Sack Collection.
