DescriptionFrank Stack ("Foolbert Sturgeon") - New Adventures of Jesus #1 Cover Original Art (Rip Off Press, 1969). The Underground Comix movement more or less began with Robert Crumb's epochal Zap Comix #1 in 1967, however, there were a few earlier pioneers. Chief among them was Frank Stack. Part of the Austin crowd which included Gilbert "Freak Brothers" Sheldon and Jack "Jaxon" Jackson, Frank's Adventures of Jesus comic (actually a 14-page photocopied booklet handed out to friends in 1962) is considered to be the original forerunner to the whole Underground scene. His first post-Zap comic was The New Adventures of Jesus, published in 1969 by Rip Off Press under Frank's nom de plume, Foolbert Sturgeon. Stack's somewhat schizophrenic career consisted of doing scandalous, sacrilegious comic books like the Jesus series, and also working as a major Fine Artist and Professor of Art at the University of Missouri. This cover art measures approximately 6.5" x 9.5" and consists of two smaller pieces of art (the masthead and the oval illustration) mounted to another piece of board. The illustration has had some light color added, plus, there is some moderate white-out applied along the edges; overall, the piece is in Excellent condition. A signed copy of the original comic book is also included, and the two items have been attractively mounted side by side.
