    Description

    Daniel Clowes Young Lust #8 Cover Original Art (Last Gasp, 1993). With this "Special Sex Wars" cover art, Daniel Clowes connects the dots between Underground Comix and today's Alternative Comics scene. Young Lust began back in 1970, and was a head-shop staple for years. Magazine-sized issue #8 was the last to date, and Mr. Clowes does the title proud with this funny send-up of the old "97 lb weakling" as seen in body-building ads ("Hey skinny -- your ribs are showing!) and is reminiscent of a scene in Robert Crumb's "Dirty Dog" strip, with the package of men's magazines clutched in his hand. The art is in ink over graphite on Bristol board; there is a strip added to the right side by taping a piece of Bristol from behind, to make the art fit the magazine format. The combined image area is approximately 12" x 16". There are some light foxing stains and board tanning, with tack holes outside the image area, for an overall Very Good condition.
